— This hidden gem fits right in at the Oxford Airport. The restaurant sits right along the runway and its exterior echoes the arched design of the many private hangers on the property.
Even better than the sunset views and the entertaining air traffic is the food. An eclectic menu offers a range of specialties, including pizzas, salads, sandwiches, steaks and seafood. There also is a lively bar scene with occasional live music.
Past favorites include the hanger steak with creamy blue cheese spinach, barbecue chicken pizza and, of course, the desserts. Check the website for a current menu.
Prices aren't cheap, but the view and satisfying cuisine are worth it.
121 is located at the Oxford Airport at 7 Juliano Drive in Oxford, 203-262-0121. 121 is open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday through Sunday.
