There’s still pizza to be had in Mystic, Conn., but the small coastal town is gaining a big reputation as a booming foodie haven and an essential entry in any East Coast eater’s docket.
Quaint and artsy Mystic, named for the river that runs through it and under the bascule bridge before emptying into Long Island Sound, is largely known for its Mystic Seaport Museum (the nation’s leading maritime museum). And, as the town where the Julia Roberts’ career-launching film “Mystic Pizza” was filmed. (Yes, the Mystic Pizza parlor is still there.)
