Jfood wishes Aloi (New Canaan) would receive more love

thanks again to All for input

when the Glass House tour concluded I called Aloi @ approx
5:15 to check on specials for the night. apparently the specials
aren't released until 5:30. we headed to Aloi to check on specials
no osso buco and I really didn't feel very welcome

over to Bonne Nuit where staff was warm and welcoming when I asked to
see menu and specials and so that was my choice

I thoroughly enjoyed the tomato tart and braised short ribs
husband had caesar salad and chicken with frites
I thought the wines were way overpriced
Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio was $67
i had costa rican sugar cake with dulce de leche ice cream, cake dry/ice cream OK
husband's choc cake good

would love a recipe for the tomato tart
we had a great day and meal

Jfood wishes Aloi (New Canaan) would receive more love

jfood many thanks for quick reply
looking @ Aloi website dinner menu (hasn't been updated since Spring 2008) I see only 6 Primi and 6 Cena offerings
is this what I should expect today, and I don't see a bolognese option

how many specials are the norm?
again thanks

I've had my tix for The Glass House tour for over 1 year and of course I am now just researching restaurants for dinner tonight after our tour concludes.

We live in CT but don't head to NC for dining. The restaurants suggested to me last week are Chef Luis, Aloi and Chings. After reading posts I'm leaning toward Aloi, Osso Buco got my attention although it is not on their online menu. will have to call today and check if it will be on the specials tonight

Other posts here: Harvest Supper also an option

Thanks for any quick replies

Anyone try Bistro Basque in Milford, CT yet?

I got the phone number from yellowpages.com

we ate there in June. on the back of their menu was their website which I have tried a few times since and it is always "under construction"

now today I can't exactly remember it and too much time has passed and my computer won't bring it up automatically

it was bistrobasque with either a "usa" or "us" in it somewhere

Also recommend Bet's Famous Fish Fry. Returning to Boothbay Harbor in a few weeks and can't wait to eat again at Bet's.
http://www.hollyeats.com/BetsFishFry.htm

Bet's Fish Fry is housed in a small trailer parked beside the Boothbay Common on Rt 27. There's only one road (Route 27) into Boothbay Harbor, so you can't avoid driving by it on your way into town.

hot lobster rolls connecticut - october

My friends who are lobster roll connoisseurs highly recommend "The Sea Swirl" in Mystic. Here's their website.
http://www.seaswirlofmystic.com/

If you'll be near Boothbay, ME. I recommend Betts for fish and chips in a portable trailer across the street from the Boothbay Baptist Church, unbelievable..........

and Sea Basket, Route 1 north, Wiscasset for lobster stew.

ISO of Instant Yeast in Park Slope

found this on a google search, is there a Trader Joe's near you?
"For those on the hunt for instant yeast, I got mine at Trader Joe’s. It says “Perfect Rise,” but after some pow-wowing with my bread-expert friend Virginia, we concluded it is the same thing as the red Saf-Instant so favored by professional bakers."

ISO of Instant Yeast in Park Slope

just a thought, did you check the baking aisle and the dairy section. I have found it at both sites at my local stores.
