Know of any good BOYB restaurants in Fairfield County CT? We found a great place for Italian food that allows us to bring our own bottle of wine (Tutti Invitati, in Westport)--and no corkage fee! But we'd like more. Know of any in Greenwich, Stamford, Darien or Westport?

      Search on Nessa-- there have been several write-ups- It is on Main Street in Port Chester, just over the Greenwich line- This is what I wrote the beginning of March--
      There was a nice write-up for Nessa in the Westmore News (local Rye Brook newspaper) yesterday. Last night we ventured there. The room is long, dark but pleasant. The service was efficient but on the slow side. The food was-- good, very good! It is upscale Italian with a wide variety of choices. No bread is served, you can order all different kinds bruschetta, quite yummy, $3 per slice. Paninis with fresh ingredients $8. Delicious Nessa salad, mixed greens with some pickled bits, loved it!!! Main dishes, pasta with clam sauce and fusilli pasta with sausage, broccoli rabe and fresh tomatoes. Both were exceptional, I think in the $16-$20 range. No room for dessert, but an unexpected excellent meal.

      The ones I know in Greenwich are both Asian---Penang on Lewis St., and Little Thai Kitchen on St. Roch. LTK is great, though...best suburban Thai I know of. You could also try Barcelona in Greenwich on a Sunday night, when any bottle on the list that's $50 or less is half price. Great deal, and almost like byob, since for some bottles the discount brings the price down to retail level.

        When we ate at the new restaurant Nessa is was BYOB. Check with them if they got their liquor license yet.

          Valencia Luncheria in Norwalk is BYOB. It's Norwalk's hidden little gem.
