Warm Your Soul at South End with a Paired Wine Dinner – New Canaan, CT

25 Jan

After the closing of Pine Social in New Canaan, we were skeptical if another restaurant coming into that spot would also be successful.  When we saw the menu and got information from South End, though, we began to change our minds.  What finally made us change our minds is actually eating there.  The food was fresh, locally sourced, and the menu was very fun and playful.  For example, the tomato and mozzarella salad was one of the most unique interpretations that we’ve ever tasted with basil gelato and a tomato gelee.  While some people have complained about the menu being confusing, that’s actually one of the things that we liked most about it…it’s like an adventure.

If you haven’t had the chance to check out this New Canaan newcomer (or if you’re a well-seasoned vet), then we’ve got a great chance for you to try out the food.  On February 5, they’ll be hosting a four course wine dinner that will warm up your spirit in the bitter cold of February.  You could even think of this as an early Valentine’s Day present, if you’d like…
