One of our favorite spots in Fairfield County is Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro in Norwalk. Our friends Steph and Jim are regulars (we’ve gotta hang again) and we’ve gone with our buds, Alicia and Renato Ghio of rMedia and The Natural Princess fame. Also, last December we gave them an OmNomy for Best BYOB and there’s a reason why: local food from farms, creative and inventive dishes from Chef Robert Trolio, and a very quaint atmosphere.
Well, put away the bottle for one very special night. Join Chef Trolio at Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro for their Inaugural 2012 Farm to Table Dinner on 9/27 at 7:30 pm. You won’t need your bottle to bring along because there are four wine paired courses along with two wines to start off with when you’re snacking on some appetizers. Robert was kind enough to share the menu with us, so we’ll share it with you. Tickets are $69.50, plus tax and gratuity. With the amount of food and wine that you’re drinking, this is the deal of the century.
Show your love of all things local and of the great food here at Nicholas Roberts by making your reservations today at (203) 229-0035. If you’re one of those people (there must be a few left) who haven’t eaten at Nicholas Roberts yet, let this be your excellent introduction into their world.
