Bacchus in Sono. Molte Bene
Living in Sono, anytime a new restaurant opens, it's somewhat of an event and as such, must be tested immediately. That being said, my wife and I ate at Bacchus in South Norwalk last night and were very impressed. From the Tuna Tartare on crackers and the large romaine crisps in the Caeser salad to the cooked-to-perfection Filet Mignon, the food was all very good and the service was the most attentive I've had in this town. A nice touch was added in between apps and entrees as a complimentary, light, chef's tasting of pasta was delivered. Nice touch. If you like Pinot Noir, the Stephen Ross puts Strada's Willamette to shame and the Ice Wine at the end was a perfect complement to our desserts. They have done a great job updating the old Bistro Du Soleil to form intimate and well-lit environs. Apparently, we weren't the only ones who were impressed, as the place was packed with patrons halfway through our meal. We will undoubtedly return soon.
