50 Coins--New Canaan

MommaJ | Mar 19, 200810:09 PM

We tried this recently opened casual restaurant tonite. Lots of parking in the back, which is always an issue in N.C. Interior is light, bright (actually, too bright, I could have performed surgery on my burger) and a little sterile; bar in a separate room. There were TV's suspended on opposite corners of the dining room, one tuned to ESPN, the other to ESPN 2, no idea why. It was early, 6 pm, so the place was filled with kids and very noisy--if you aren't bringing kids, I'd definitely wait til a later hour. As for the food, I guess it's basically diner fare in a bit nicer setting, and at New Canaan prices. I had a burger that was just okay (as usual I was asked how I wanted it, I said medium, it came well--I don't think I've had a medium burger in years except at home), sweet potato fries that were crispy but greasy and needed some seasoning; daughter had pulled pork (they also have BBQ ribs) that was decent, with nice mashed potatoes. We shared an okay salad. Portions are very large (in all respects-I think there was half a head of romaine lettuce on my burger). Menu large and varied. I guess I'm somewhat underwhelmed.
