carpe diem - new canaan

I think we missed 50 coins which used to occupy this spot. Just kidding. A few of us went there the other night after the place had been open about a week. Cons-Hard bread-we were confused because the bread guy had what looked like three types of bread and gave 3 of us the same pieces which were not fresh and not so good. Crisp artichoke appetizer was tasteless and will never order it again. Server was unfamiliar with the limited wine list although we ended up with a decent not overpriced bottle. Halibut was ok although overseasoned. Pros-Tuna crostini was good although they forgot the crostini. Mussels were very good. Linguini with clams and garlic and oli were pretty good. Long story short, place is only a week old but we will not return for a few months until the service and kitchen smooth themselves out. we didn't bother with desert as the menu was limited and we weren't confident after the first couple of courses. Hopefully that will change.
