    I'm looking for a classy yet not to damn expensive (about $20-35 a plate) place to go out to diner for my b-day.
    I'm looking for something like these places
    500 Blake Street (New Haven)
    The Victorian House (Cheshire)
    Ruth Chris's (Newington)

    etc...
    I've got a few weeks to find somewhere, I'm looking for somewhere new that I've never been to before.
    I'd like to hear your reviews, thoughts , and experiences etc..

    ohh boy :ph34r:

    having been a waiter at a country club for 6 years, i kinda got into it :lol:

    there's millions of good bottles of wine. to recommend one, would be bullshit. its all about what your eating, what tannins your mouth enjoys, and so on and so forth.

    for a starter bottle,
    I LOVE 1997 Chateu.
    its impossible to find now, they are on to the 1998-1999 vintage by now... but god damn, 97 was a good ass year for cabernet's.
    ask steve- thats the bottle i bought when we were in VT at the cabin....
