Wine-paired Feast @ Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro’s Inaugural 2012 Farm to Table Dinner – Norwalk, CT

22 Sep

Short ribs from our last dinner at Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro

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.

6th Annual Harvest Wine Tasting 
Equinox Fitness – 72 Heights Road – Darien, CT 
Sat, November 5th 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM 

If you’re a serious food addict you know about Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro in Norwalk and have eaten there a few times.  If you’re even more of a food addict, then you also know about Nicholas Roberts Fine Wines in Darien.  BTW, you know if you get some wine at Nicholas Roberts Fine Wines and take it to Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro there’s no corkage fee?  Yeah, the Troilo brothers have you covered.  When we first moved to Stamford, we stopped by for some wine and loved the shop.  So much to see, experience, and so much to learn from Peter and the staff.  You’d be pressed to find a better and more knowledgeable wine staff in all of Fairfield County, no doubt.

Peter, who runs Nicholas Roberts Fine Wines, reminded us about the awesome 6th Annual Harvest Wine Tasting event that’s taking place this weekend by tweet.  We first heard about it this past weekend from his brother Robert at Chilifest.  Well, let’s break it down for you, nice and smooth, like a fine red wine:

• Free wine tasting from 4-8 on Saturday, 11/5 at Equinox Fitness in Darien
• Give back for all the fine wine you’re tasting and donate money to Turning Wine Into Water
     • Turning Wine Into Water was started by Robert and Peter’s father to help provide clean water to and save thousands of children’s’ lives.
• Find great wines to purchase for your Thanksgiving, Chanukkah, and Christmas dinners!
• Find great wines to just drink on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and every other day of the week.
Please RSVP and let them know you’re attending by e-mailing rsvp@nicholasrobertsltd.com or calling the store at (203) 655 – 9045.  Tell them Danny and Kristien from OmNomCT sent ya.  Or just call and e-mail and say you’d like to attend.  We won’t be offended. ;)
