Assaggio Ristorante On The Harbor - Stratford, CT (203) 381-9200

So, I saw in the Local -Eyez on Milford an ad for this restaurant, located in the former location of Margarita Grille and before that Red Fin. At The Dock Shopping Plaza across from BJ's, 955 Ferry Boulevard. Nothing good ever seems to go in there, and it is such a nice location on the river (albeit under the Moses Wheeler highway overpass). Ad says "Serving contemporary italian cuisine for lunch and dinner" and "Under New Ownership." No website I could find other than some ads for servers. Let's hope they hire some trained professionals, not the local pretty big-breasted HS girls and their boyfriends like the Red Fin. Servers can make quite the difference, so I hope they don't make that mistake again. I called the Assagio in Branford, and the host said they are unrelated, but he found it funny how similar the name and even the way the A looks in the title. They could only be so lucky to be as good as Assaggio in Branford. Anyway, if you are brave enough to try it, let us know how it is.

Red Fin was trying to be upscale, then Margarita Grille went casual hoping to get all the Stratford 20-year-olds since Harborside was having some issues with their patrons. How will this fare; should be interesting.
