We were in northeastern Connecticut for the annual craft fair in Woodstock and hungry for lunch after shopping all morning. Luckily, I consulted Trip Advisor and found not one but two new restaurants in Putnam that none of us had experienced. We decided on Jessica Tuesdays located on Main Street, right next to The Crossing. We were seated outside as all inside tables were taken. We got a table next to the fire pit. There was also a bar and several people in a large party and several other diners. Soon the restaurant was filled to capacity. The menu had several selections and a page of daily specials. I tried the pumpkin soup on special and so did mom. It was creamy and delicious. I had the fig, arugula, and butternut squash risotto which was cooked expertly and so satisfying. Mom had the coconut shrimp which came with five shrimp that she enjoyed. Our friend had the homemade ravioli filled with pesto which she adored. I also tried the special blackberry sangria which was very tasty. We are so happy we found Jessica Tuesday's.
