This week only, several Fairfield restaurants are offering special pre-fixe lunches ($10.11 or $18.11) and dinners ($20.11 and $30.11) as part of “Eating Fairfield”—sort of a mini-version of the “Restaurant Week” we all love so much. Okay, so I’m thinking the timing of this event isn’t exactly ideal (I mean we all just over-indulged over the Thanksgiving weekend!), but I for one never need much of an excuse to grab some friends and go out to lunch, or have a very rare mid-week date night. Some of my very favorite restaurants, new and old, are all participating, so that sweetens the deal considerably. In honor of “Small Business Saturday”, extend it into this week and support some of our fantastic local eateries. I know I will! For more information go to The New England Culinary Group.
