6/14/08-SBC Brewery, Branford, CT

Tom and I had dinner at this Connecticut mini-chain restaurant this evening, best known for its beer. On the whole, the food is average. I had the rosemary pork loin with a demi-glace and mashed potatoes and Tom had a seafood pasta, both specials for the evening. Although our dishes were good, both of us found that we're not really fans of this restaurant. We've eaten here before and decided to give it another try and have found that if you're a beer drinker, then you will quite likely enjoy the brews they have to offer and should go here with the intention of trying a few.

6/6/08-Marius, New Haven, CT

A great new place to try--as recommended by Ronnie--and he was right as usual. Very unique decor in Marius, which is named after a Roman statesman. Lots of Roman-esque decorations on the walls and these huge lion statues when you walk in the door. Our server, Brian, was great fun--ask for him if you go here, he made our meal quite the experience. The menu was a bit of everything--Tom had the Argentinian lamb ragout which was very tasty and I had the chicken stuffed with smoked mozzarella and procuitto. Dinner came with salads lightly dressed in a vinaigrette and a bread plate. For dessert we shared the tiramisu, which is one of the better that I've had in recent memory. This is a great place for wine, too--very large selection. Overall, great experience, definitely check it out.

No website--located next to Nikkita on Crown St.
