Looking for any recommendations for a restaurant for a small birthday celebration in the Rye, Port Chester, Greenwich, Stamford areas. Should be someplace "special" but not ultra expensive. Nice atmosphere, not too cramped but not dead either. Aslo nothing too exotic in the way of cuisine. All ideas appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Rjka,

    Just found a nice place in Stamford over the summer.

    It's called Telluride, as in the place in Colorado. Good,hearty eclectic American cuisine, entrees priced around $15-20, if I recall. Nice selection of fish and meats, big, fresh salads as entrees. I had one with blue cheese, nuts and oranges that was delicious. Lighting and atmosphere are pleasing - it's casual but with a polished feel, if that makes any sense. Also, nice wine list. Hope this helps!

      Thanks for the recommendation. That's actually one of the places I already know about. I've been there several times, although not recently, and I agree with your opinion. It's very reliable and good without being in the ultra high priced category.
