Dinner with friend in downtown Greenwich

niia Nov 14, 2011 09:22 PM

Often go to Tengda or Terra and looking for something new. Went to Elm St. Oyster Bar and was disappointed. Any nice new spots or good standbys you'd recommend for a weeknight dinner? Like all kinds of food as long as it's good and a nice atmosphere.

    I always enjoy my dinners at Barcelona, nice variety of tapas to share, great wine list and really friendly bartenders.

      Have you tried Toscania yet? I heard it is really good on Lewis Street. Also, Morello Bistro as well as Polpo are always good standbys

        I had a good dinner recently at Douro. It's a Portuguese place on Rte 1, about 1 block West of Greenwich Ave (near Barcelona). The food was well prepared, the prices reasonable (at least by Greenwich standards), and it was a comfortable place to have a quiet conversation.

          Thanks, Steve. That looks great and I hadn't heard of it before. Great recommendation!

            I second the Douro recommendation. I think they are moving soon, to Greenwich Ave.
