NEED suggestion New Canaan, Westport, Stamford CT area

nyperr May 28, 2011 10:15 AM

We are going to the Phillip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan CT this weekend and need a recommendation for a good quality restaurant with high quality locally sourced ingredients for lunch.
We will have a friend coming from Paris so we'd prefer to show her great American dining.

If at all possible, I'd love something on the water or with scenic views....I know I'm asking a lot.

    The Boathouse on the Saugatuck river in Westport would fit the bill nicely. The egg dishes are tremendous, in particular the scrambled egg with smoked trout and caviar app.

        I don't think you are going to find anything that fits your bill open on a Monday for lunch in this area.

        It might be one of the few places open, but it does not have high quality locally sourced ingredients. However it is a pretty spot.
