Need something else to be thankful for this holiday? How does a weeks worth of prix fixe menus at local restaurants sound? Sunday, November 28, Darien Restaurant Week kicks off and delicious deals will abound. And last week, I got a sneak peek of whats in store.
One of our prix fixe items will be the chefs choice, said Kenny He, Executive Chef at Matsuri. This is my first Restaurant Week in Darien, so I want to get creative. Sushi lovers are in expert hands with Chef He, who learned his craft in Tokyo.
The long list of participating cafés, bistros and other eateries includes: Backstreet Restaurant , Bertuccis , Chucks Steakhouse , Fuji of Japan , Harpers Restaurant and Bar , Little Thai Kitchen , Matsuri , Olé Molé , Rorys , Scena Wine Bar and Bistro , Tengda Asian Bistro , The Goose American Bistro and Bar , The Melting Pot and The Waters Edge at Giovannis . Prix fixe lunch menus will be offered at either $10.10 or $15.10 per person, and dinner menus will run from $20.10 to $30.10 per person.
Were putting the menu together now, based on whats fresh and fun, said Erik Erlichson, Executive Chef at Harpers. But I can tell you it will be delicious. Chef Erlichsons pedigree leaves no doubt. Hes cooked in some terrific kitchens internationally, including Joe Allens Paris location.
Lunch, dinner, date night or family-style, Dariens Restaurant week has something for everyone on the menu. And the prix fixe prices are reason alone to be thankful. Get the whole scoop from the Darien Chamber of Commerce .
