Here we go…restaurant weeks are starting to pop up again.  Don’t you love how they seem to show up just at the right time, when things seem the bleakest?  While the Darien one doesn’t run for exactly a week, it still goes from Sunday, 2/24 until Friday, 3/1.  That’s still some good quality time to get on down to Darien and check out some restaurants for a nice price.  You know the spiel:  pay a set amount of $, get a prix fixe 3 course meal.  Always a nice deal.  We have all the restaurants involved for you with our ratings if we’ve eaten there, but we don’t have the costs yet.  We should be getting those soon, so when we do, we’ll update this.

Which restaurant(s) do you plan to check out?

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza:  ( 3.5 Noms)

Bodega Taco Bar: (4.25 Noms for the Fairfield location)

Chuck’s Steak House

Coromandel:  (3.75 Noms for Stamford location)

After the leftovers expire, check out Darien Restaurant Week

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?
