I am looking for a moderately priced restaurant in Fairfield, Westport, SoNo for a wedding reception dinner for 40 ppl. Rustic Northern Italian with family style seating would be ideal but we are interested in any unusual, quirky dining locales. We love American but that is what we are serving for the wedding so we're looking for something a little different and a place where we can keep the cost down. No tapas, Mediterranean, Japanese or Chinese.
I've heard mixed reviews about The Dressing Room, Schoolhouse (I know, they are American too) is a bit pricey and nothing is standing out in SoNo but I live in LA so I am not familiar with the new restaurants.
