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.
