I'd like to go out to a nice meal this weekend in the lower Connecticut area (Chester, Essex, Old Saybrook, Lyme, etc.)
What's the latest consensus on what's good?
I've had Restaurant du Village recommended and then panned, and later reviews seem mixed for the Copper Beech Inn. Where do people go these days for pleasant, upscale food? All things being equal, I would lean towards French-ish or seafood-y food, but I'm certainly not married to either.
