  On a beautiful evening last week, we decided last minute to have dinner at Terra. Since it is August and half of Greenwich seems to be away, we were able to get a table outside. The breeze was delightful and terrace quiet compared to the restaurant itself. After a round of great drinks we had a hard time choosing between Terra’s usual wonderful dinner entrees. Everything looks and sounds so good, but we can only eat...

  It was nice to see a good crowd on a Wednesday night at Firenze. And although almost all the tables were taken, it was still possible to converse, thanks to the new acoustical tiles they have installed. The men started off with the Tagliere to share: an abundant board of Italian hams, salamis, delicious cheeses, olives, grapes, walnuts and honey. This is a wonderful taste experience, but it does leave you pretty full. Determined to have...
