My wife and I went to Foe in Branford, Ct last night for my 33rd birthday and I can only say I am sorry I waited so long to go to this great restaurant. We arrived one hour early to have a drink at the bar and were greeted by a friendly and helpful bartender. After a nice glass of old vine zinfandel we moved on to dinner.
We were offered a table off of the bar in front of the fireplace or in the main dining room by the large windows overlooking Main Street. We chose the window seats and were brought warm bread with honey butter and roasted garlic, a great start. For appetizers, we chose fried lobster raviolis with a zucchini topping and homemade sausage patty topped with roasted reds and 100 yr balsamic. Neither dissapointed, but I was partial to the sausage.
For our main meals, I chose the roasted duck over chourico risotto cooked to medium perfection and the wife had pumkin encrusted cod over quinoa. We finished dinner with a split carrot cake that I would rate average. We were then offered by the co-owner complimentary glasses of port wine which we accepted. I thought that this was a nice touch to a great evening and certainly not something that any chain restaurant or most private restaurants do with any frequency.
We certainly will be adding Foe to our list of restaurants that we frequent, not only because the food was superb, but because of the way we were treated. Most restaurants take their customers for granted, often forgetting that I can spend my money somewhere else. Not so at Foe.
