If you are not looking for a Southern type of feel for a restaurant, the Gathering will do it. The choices in Branford are very limited. This is a small town.
The Gathering is best known for its sandwiches, Philly Steak and Cheese is the best. The desserts are impecable. The service is friendly and casual dress applied. The prices are not bad.
This is a small cozy restuarant. I enjoy the atmosphere.
