    This place was never Cogburn's, although I believe one of the owner's did work there. It was formerly the Uptown Tavern and the Brass Rail.

        Where on Main? Or you talking about the new place down the road from Dunkin Donuts?

            hmm, still not sure about location. Is that down by City Hall? This sounds like exactly the type of place my parents would do take out from.

              No, it's closest to NY Bakery, the Family Diner and the Ford dealership.

                It's over by Wall St.

                I had dinner across the street from there (La Paella) on Sat night & it looked packed. Can't wait to try.

                  My wife was there Saturday night. The report was good aps...really good wings and decent burgers. Thirty-something bar crowd...I'm told it looked like a Brien McMahon 15-year reunion.

                    As opposed to a Norwalk High reunion...
                    I'm a McMahon girl, my husband went to Norwalk. You can imagine the conflict.
