Match, South Norwalk

Restaurants succeed for a variety of reasons—a celebrity connection, a terrific location, the appeal of a food fad or marketing gimmick, all of which may lose their appeal tomorrow.

Assaggio, Stratford

Assaggio, on the Housatonic River with a harbor view, is as lavishly shipshape and dedicated to la dolce vita as an Italian playboy’s megabuck yacht. Welcome aboard, cara, a seat at the bar, perhaps? Where you can admire the boats and we can admire you?
