My family is coming into town from Pennsylvania on Saturday and always count on me to find interesting and delicious restaurants. These outings typically become the discussions of family get-togethers for the next year. (i.e. Aunt Mildred turning to Uncle Pete at the table at thanksgiving: "OHHHH JoJo took us to the cuuutest little restaurant when we were in CT a few months ago.") Needless to say the bar is set pretty high.
In the past I've taken them to Black Duck Cafe in Westport (which they LOVED but can't go there now as we would quite possibly turn into an icicle while we eat), Silvermine Tavern, Gates Restaurant. I've done some digging online and found some neat looking places, but thought that maybe someone on here might offer up some unique suggestions?
