Brass City Bistro - Waterbury, CT

I went to Brass City Bistro last night with some friends. It's a relatively new restaurant in Waterbury and the decor is warm and welcoming. The service was attentive but not overpowering. I ordered Veal Godfather (breaded veal with a red wine sauce, tomatoes & mozzarella). It was delicious. It was a very large portion. It came with a very nice salad (or soup) and a baked potato (or mashed or pasta). The prices on the regular menu are very reasonable, but the "specials" are quite pricey (appetizers $14-$26, entrees $28-$49). The waitress told us this before she recited a huge list of at least 7 appetizer & entree specials. I wish they could have it printed, so you could see it and have time to ponder which one you'd like to order. At the end of the list of specials, I had forgotten what the first one was! My friends ordered fried shrimp, which came with fries, waffle like chips and cole slaw. It was a huge dish of food and my friend and veal lobster oscar (which was actually on the menu as chicken lobster oscar for $24), the waitress said the veal would be a few dollars more. They both said they enjoyed their entrees. The owner came over several times to check on our table and was very nice. They have a large, wooden bar in the back of the restaurant with some high-top tables and a private dining room that seats 18 comfortably (we were told). It's a very nice place, the food was delicious and I'm sure I will go back.
