I work in Bridgeport, live in Riverside, and don't go out to eat around here all that much. My general feeling about Fairfield County eating is that, for the most part, it's worth the trip down to New York if I want to go out for a decent meal. As a result, I cook most nights, and I'm in the city most weekends.
The thing is, my birthday's coming up, and I don't feel like cooking on my birthday. Where can I go with my fiancee for a good meal, preferably something that we couldn't get better in the city, something not super high end, but nice ambience and comfortable? We're pretty adventurous and open-minded, and happy to go anywhere from Greenwich to Norwalk to New Canaan to Bridgeport or wherever else. Maybe keep the meal, including some wine, around $150 for two?
One idea is the new Harvest place in NC, or maybe Rowayton Seafood - but please, any suggestions are much appreciated.
