Why Are There No Great Restaurants In Fairfield County?

I always feel very dissapointed this time of year about the restaurant quality in Fairfield County. For me summer is celebration time. Both my wife's and my birthday and our anniversary all fall between May and July. I hope every year a new restaurant will open that will truly excite me. I have tried them all in the area. While many are very good, none are what I would call special. The closet restaurant that I would consider for a special occasion would be X2O in Yonkers. I don't understand why Fairfield County doesn't have some thing great. I know people in this area would go. Maybe I'm spoiled by living so close to NYC, but I'm tired of having to go to the city every time for that special dinner. If they build it people would come! Here are some of the restaurants I eat regularly at in NYC that I wish we had somthing of this quality in our area. Eleven Madison Park, Craft, Gramercy Tavern, Keens, Pampano, etc.
