hey jfood - you're generally a good source on Fairfield County. I posted re: anniversary dinner - romantic but under $200 - for this weekend and had very light response. I'm calling you out for some help with the CT possibilities - as far east as Norwalk I'd say. Mr. Layla and I are wine drinkers but may bring one of our own special bottles and do corkage which should never be more than $25. Any thoughts on a romantic environment with great food btwn $100 and $150 and where we might actually be able to score a reservation w/such short notice - our bad I know.
