Popping up on April 20 from 5:30-9 at elm in New Canaan is a special dining experience that brings together two of CT’s best and most celebrated chefs. Chef Luke Venner of elm won’t have to come very far for this collaboration, but his former executive chef at Millwright’s in Simsbury, Tyler Anderson, has to travel a bit. But, that road trip will be so worth it . . . and will be so worthy of you taking a trip, too.

Elm in New Canaan: One of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America for 2012!

3 Oct

Congratulations to Elm and Chef Lewis, announced from their FB page!

Well, that pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?  In their 28th year (here are this year’s results) of seeking out the hottest and best new restaurants all across America, Esquire is out with their latest list that has Elm in New Canaan on the list.  To those who have dined here, they’d probably say that this is no surprise.  Chef and owner Brian Lewis has been featured in countless articles and reviews, praising his style and his love of all things local and seasonal.  His gig before Elm was cooking up a storm at Richard Gere’s The Farmhouse at Bedford Post.

As for options eating here, there are so many to pick from:  dinner, chef’s tasting, bar dining (snacks), Sunday brunch, and even Sunday supper.  Perhaps one of the coolest things to do here is go with Chef Lewis on a journey to the farm through his tasting menu.  For $45 you’ll get three courses, paired beautifully for you.  If you have more of an appetite or feel a bit more daring, check out five courses for $75.  Now, this is great, but even more exciting (at least to us, we’re in serious awe of talented chefs) is the Chef’s Tasting Counter.  Saddle on up and enjoy each bite of your tasting menu while you watch all the action go down in the kitchen.  Yes, you’ll see your dishes cooked and prepared right before your hungry little eyes.
