Carolyn and Jerry celebrated their birthdays by taking a pretty fall ride to the Bistro at Chamard Vineyards in Clinton CT.
About 1 hour from Greenwich is an excellent restaurant, that is part of the Chamard Vineyards. You can sample their many wines in 2oz glasses and have small plates or have a bistro meal (like a croque madame or hamburger, or a full course meal). The outlet stores at Clinton Crossing are very near, making this a great twosome. https://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlet/clinton-crossing.
