AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Cuisine/Specialty): Superb food and a gracious staff make this restaurant one of my most memorable dining experiences in Connecticut.
Attentive service and carefully prepared dishes can be expected at this minimalist hot spot. Light wood flooring and white-washed walls adorned with calming artwork all play well together. Those interested in watching the chef prepare creations up close can ask to dine at the counter overlooking the distinctive glass-enclosed kitchen. The menu changes seasonally but normally incorporates fresh seafood, high-quality meats and chicken. Truffles and caviar can be found on the menu. Sample menu offerings include a frisée salad with sautéed wild mushrooms, asparagus tips and warm goat cheese; a fillet of wild North Sea turbot with jumbo lump crab meat hash and lobster sauce; and a Maine blueberry crisp with crème fraîche ice cream for dessert.
