Special Dinner - Cafe Routier or one of the Max's in CT? Help us decide?

cheereeo | Jun 13, 2008 12:59 PM

My husband and I go out for a combined Mother's Day, Anniversary, my Birthday and Father's Day dinner--hell, celebrations just aren't that big a deal to me, so I say "let's drop the kid off, combine and go out to a really nice kid-free special dinner." Anyway, I have two gift certificates that I'd like to use toward the meal.

I've been thinking of Cafe Routier in Westbook or one of the Max restaurants. I've been dying to do Cafe Routier, but I'm not loving the seasonal menu at the moment, but I know there will be specials too. And, I'm not sure which Max to go to. I've been to the small one in Glastonbury, but I want something more special.

I love all kinds of food. My husband is more meat and potatoes but also loves a good piece of fish--as long as it isn't a tid-bit size portion--he's a good eater. We also love dessert and could care less about wine list. But we've been known to go to a separate restaurant for dessert only afterward. (Oh! It also cannot be too pretentious or stuffy or my husband will hate it!)

Help me decide. Thanks.
