Gelatissimo Artisan Gelato

It's a gelato place. The best I have had here in the US.

On restaurant row you will find this outstanding gelato parlor. Lots of flavors to try. Tables are available if you would like to sit or take your gelato for a walk around beautiful New Canaan!

Sole

Whether you unwind with a glass of Pinot Grigio at the bar that encircles the exposed kitchen, or linger at a table for two beneath a striking arbor inspired by an Italian vineyard, you’ll be swept away by Solé. This sophisticated trattoria, located on Elm Street in the picturesque New England town of New Canaan, Connecticut, serves handmade pastas, wood-fired pizzas, and succulent entrees in a relaxed, yet utterly cosmopolitan setting.

Reviewed By chagebak - Avarua, Cook Islands

Despite our lack of reservation for a Friday evening, we were greeted very warmly and promptly seated. Make no mistake - this is a nice restaurant with top-drawer dining. The layout made the place seem a little cramped and loud, but not unpleasantly so. The wait staff was extraordinarily efficient and helpful. I ordered the Rustichella Rigatoni Bolognese, which was outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Zumbach's Gourmet Coffee

Reviewed By Film G - Aurora

The tea isn't much, but the coffee is great: massive choice, all roasted on premises. It's hip without being hipster. Munchies consist of muffins, which are very good, but that is it. This is very much a coffee place. Try to get there when the yoga classes get out.

Ching's Table

Reviewed By MartaL1970 - New York

Chings Table is our go to Asian restaurant... despite the 45 minute drive. We have never been disappointed with the quality of their food, ever! It is absolutely not over priced regardless of some of the reviews I've read. I just don't get where they are coming from! It is not your average Chinese restaurant. It's way more that that. It's a gourmet fusion of Chinese, Japanese and Thai, and it just doesn't get better than that for the price. We have not found anything that even comes close to the quality of their food! I love the house salad with the peanut dressing, the crispy red snapper and the shrimp and scallop Samba Sambal...or something like that. My husband loves the crispy duck and claims it is the best around. The staff are soo wonderful and personable. We love them. Yum, now I'm hungry!!! PS...the photo for the profile does not reflect how brilliant their food is!

Baskin-Robbins

Reviewed By Elizabeth M - New Canaan, Connecticut

The New Canaan Bskin-Robbins inside is like others in the chain, with prompt service and the usual flavors and products. What makes a little different is the bench outside on the wide sidewalk, on one of the two main shopping streets in New
Canaan's village. It is open long hours, so families and people of all ages can drop in in the early evening for a scoop or a sundae.

We ate there while in town for business. While we had eaten there a while back, and it was always good, I was really impressed with the menu; several Mexican dishes that were very good, and overall a nice selection. The staff was professional, and it's a nice atmosphere. We'll go back.
