Welcome to CM's!

For over 30years we have been known for our great food. We purchase the best ingredients and change our menu regularly to reflect the change of seasons and the availability of different ingredients. Whenever possible we try to use seasonal, locally grown ingredients. We proudly serve cheeses made at Cato corner farm in Colchester, ice cream from Buck’s of Milford, produce from Schultz Farm in Hamden and Gresczyk Farms in New Hartford; beef, pork and veal from Eagle Wood Farm in Barkhamstead are a few of the locally procured items we feature every day. We are located in the Upper State Street area of New Haven and are known for our great food, great drink and great people.
For a quarter century, Christopher Martins has offered a winning combination of fine dining & service in a comfortable relaxed setting.

Christopher Martins Restaurant & Pub is always in good taste. Bring yourself and your guests for some of the best Continental Cuisine available anywhere. Creative dishes served by our staff in a warm and casual style. We are just a brisk walk or ride to and from the New Haven theater district and Yale University. FREE valet parking is always available Tuesday through Sunday.

2013 Race Results

We hope to make Christmas a little brighter for needy children in the New Haven area by giving them not only a toy, but the message of love from friends and neighbors they have never met.  Over the years, our race has given over 50,000 toys to children.

Thanks to all the runners and volunteers who help make the race a huge success again!
