Something is brewing: at Edd’s

WESTBROOK, CT (WFSB) – A Westbrook business owner says the music sent her across the country, but the food brought her back to Connecticut.

In this week’s Something’s Cooking, Eyewitness News visits Edd’s Place, a riverside rock restaurant.

Liz Wood made amazing music while living in Los Angeles and Austin.

Now she is back in her home country, creating different kinds of masterpieces.

“It’s like looking at my food, you can kind of see the story of my life as it relates to cooking,” Liz said.

Liz returned to Connecticut at the height of the pandemic and bought Edd’s Place, a small restaurant with big, beautiful water views.

“I think when I was young and moved I just wanted to get out of here, but to know how much people really care about me and everyone who lives here is something that you don’t understand,” Liz said.

Liz updated Edd’s menu with a few dishes she picked up on her travels.

His fish tacos would go perfectly in a fancy California restaurant: crispy mango cod, topped with their signature special dressing.

But if you prefer a more local flavor profile, don’t worry, Liz has you covered.

His Lone Star State-inspired fried chicken and cookie sandwich became an instant bestseller.

“I brought it back from Texas and I don’t know if it’s getting crazy,” Liz said.

But Liz also stays in touch with her Connecticut roots.

Her mother owned a bakery in North Haven and Liz celebrates that family history in a delicious way with an extensive baked goods section.

Liz loves cooking and making music, as they are both an outlet to express her creativity and connect with people on an emotional level.

“Moving to LA and then to Austin, that’s where I found the connection to home was when I was cooking,” Liz said.
