The lieutenant also reviewed a couple of restaurants. The first was 26th Street Sugar Shack, who bring sweet-tooth tastes from all around the world to Bridgeport. Lt. Haynes also talked about the Parkview Diner: a joint that hits the spot whether you’re getting the chilaquiles con huevo y carne or pancakes and bacon.
