roger sherman inn, new canaan
We have a business associate in New Canaan who thinks highly of the Roger Sherman Inn. We've not eaten there since the new management, but he and his son think it's quite good lately.
jfood, whose opinions I respect, recently mentioned something nice about the Roger Sherman Inn on another thread about New Canaan dining.
i've eaten there a couple of times since the menu was redone and have been quite pleased. the menu has been creative at times, while maintaining some of their old school new england dishes that the blue hairs love (no offense to blue hairs). it's expensive and it's not schoolhouse, but it's good, and it's in town.
