Have relatives in town. Eight of us are going to lunch tomorrow. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Would like a place with some ambiance. I was thinking Tula in Monroe, Rainbow Gardens, Testos, Bridgeport or any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Ralph and Rich's in Bridgeport has good food and great atmosphere.
    Carmine's in Shelton on the River Road is also very enjoyable.
    Plenty of places along the Post Road in Fairfield would fit your bill - take your pick!

      If you're thinking about Milford, strongly recommend Bistro Basque over Rainbow Gardens

      We will probably end up in Monroe at Tula a new restaurant just over the Trumbull line.

        Did you end up at Tula? If so, how was it?

          Sorry I did not report back. Yes we did go to Tula and everyone enjoyed the lunch. We were a table of eight so we were seated at the large circular booth. Good menu with lots of choices and nicely presented. Everyone loved the modern decor of the restaurant. I had told the waiter we did not want to be rushed so we ordered our drinks, which took a long time to come out considering they were not very busy. Also a basked of garlic toast arrived just before we got our food, which was at least an hour after we arrived. Other than that., we all enjoyed our food.
