Omnomivore’s Paradise in Darien: Winter Restaurant Week 2012!

25 Jan

Try the brand spankin' new Darien Social!

Whatcha doing Monday, 2/6, thru Friday, 2/10?  Well, now you know.  You’re going to be heading out to Darien Restaurant Week.  Darien is proving to be quite the contender in the restaurant scene lately, especially with the soon to be open Darien Social.  Each restaurant will have at least three courses for you with a prix fixe meal at either $10.12 or $20.12 for lunch or $15.12 or $30.12 for dinner.  Details aren’t live yet, but we’ll update this post when we get them.  Check out the restaurants along with comments:

Café D’Azur:  Great Mediterranean food and also French dishes.  Review to come.

Cesco’s Trattoria:  We’ve heard great things about Cesco’s, with some people swearing that it’s amazing Italian.

Chuck’s Steakhouse:  This is a landmark in Darien, yet we’ve never been.  Good time to try…

Coromandel:  Great Indian food, up there in the ranks with Thali.

Darien Social:  The new boy in town, promising to be hot stuff.  Read our post and try it opening week.

The Goose American Bar & Bistro:  We’re also have heard great things here, but have yet to try.

The Melting Pot:  Dip stuff in cheese and chocolate?  Hell yes.

Phil’s Grill:  We’ve heard the beer selection here is great and so’s the food.

Robeks Juice:  We’re interested in seeing what the options will be.  We LOVE us some Robeks!

Rory’s Restaurant:  Same owners as Blue Lemon in Westport.  Excited to try the classy, wicked pub food.

Scena Wine Bar & Restaurant:  Seriously awesome Italian.  It’s a must try restaurant.

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?
