In Stonington, Mystic and Pawcatuck fish and chips are practically a religion. Good fish and chips don’t just have to be fresh they have to be part of a community gathering whether that gathering is a Friday fish fry or locals enjoying a meal at their favorite restaurant.
We asked for your favorite places to grab fish and chips in Stonington, Mystic and Pawcatuck and got some expected and some unexpected.
We’ve loved reading your comments on Stonington-Mystic Patch as well as the comments posted on Stonington Patch Facebook, but only one fish and chips place can be the Best of 2012.
To finish off this Food Fight, we narrowed down the eight nominations to five and now we need you to vote on one of the choices.
Here are your top choices:

pulled in the most nominations, and again was nominated in part for the community feel where locals can enjoy lunch or dinner while catching up with old and new friends.
just under the borough aqueduct, Patch’s swears by Zack’s fish and chips. “Big portion, so fresh, terrific batter and French fries beyond compare.”
the only Pawcatuck nomination is a favorite among locals for their English-style Friday fish and chips special.
Big Y: an unexpected late nomination once Chris Spelman told people they had to try it others remember how good their fish and chips are. “Chris Spelman—you are spot-on!” Patch user wrote. “I had forgotten about Big Y's fish & chips. I couldn’t believe how good it was. The standard is tilapia, but you can order haddock for $1 more.”
