Restaurants in Fairfield County, CT with live jazz
Jacob Marley's (RIP) in Orange used to fit the bill perfectly.
Fez in Stamford has live jazz a few times a week. Doesn't that new-ish BBQ place in Derby as well? Or maybe it's blues...but still...beats disco!
Sounds like you need to open a restaurant/live music venue with your CHOW ID!
BTW, if you're willing to trek to Wilton this guy is superb.
If you're free during the day tomorrow and/or Sunday bring a picnic lunch and check out the blues from Greg Sherrod.
Or jazz on Sunday.
Right at Shakespeare Theatre on the Housatonic River. If you dig hot dogs, chili, etc.. this place is supposedly good (as recommended by my brother).
A few blocks away from the venue.
What type of atmosphere are you looking for. If you don't mind casual, Two Boots in Bridgeport used to have a lot of Jazz nights. I know the Fairfield County Jazz Guild plays there on Saturdays at 6PM I think. And they have Dixieland Jazz on another night. I know it's crazy, but I heard that they have a hilarious Drag Queen show too! I kinda like their pizza.
