After the leftovers expire, check out Darien Restaurant Week

16 Nov
Leftovers

So, you’ll spend next Thursday prepping the turkey, mashing the potatoes, and serving your family…you’ll be exhausted.  And somehow you’ll manage to brave the crowds at the stores on Black Friday.  You’ll deserve a break and some enjoyment.  Well, why not head to one of the many restaurants that are taking part in the 2nd Annual Darien Restaurant Week?  The post-holiday yumminess takes place from November 28th to December 3rd.  Depending on the restaurant that you check out below, you’re looking at $10.10 for lunch/$15.10 for dinner or $20.10 for lunch/$30.10 for dinner.  Small potatoes when you’d normally pay two to three times more.

This is a very good experience to try new restaurants and maybe branch out and be a bit more adventurous.  Kristien and I have been to many Stamford Restaurant Weeks and we still dream of the squid ink pasta from Columbus Park Trattoria.  Darien Restaurant Week is really such an amazing deal, you’d be insane to miss out.  I’m sure we’re going to hit a few, so stay tune for the reviews. Plus, we’re giving you a valid and economical reason to eat out and to have fun.  Don’t you deserve that during the holidays?

    Maybe I’m spoiled because of how good and well organized Stamford Restaurant Weeks are, but I’m disappointed in Darien Restaurant Week. I spent the past hour calling up the restaurants and asking what the specials were/how much they cost. Some didn’t know the pricing, some didn’t know what I was talking about, and some still hadn’t decided.

    I did the best I could to update as much information as possible about the great deals…it’s even better than the actual Darien website that has the information on it. Maybe they’ll catch up to our blog and fill in the missing info?

    I just don’t get it.

  1. Ya Ain’t Scena-it All ‘Til Ya Seen Scena Wine Bar & Restaurant, Darien « OmNomCT - January 22, 2011

    […] Darien Restaurant Week led us to discover a star that’s been shining in Darien since September 1, 2010:  Scena Wine Bar & Restaurant.  Scena is the brainchild of the same owners of Cava in New Canaan and 55° Wine Bar & Restaurant in Fairfield.  When we arrived, we enjoyed Scena’s decor, which had a modern sensibility to it, similar to the food.  It’s rooted in real, classic Italian dishes and kinds of flavors, but it’s more than that.  The food is deeper, more complex, and is even playful…more on that when we get to the Nutella Filled Crepe.
