 Cafe La Ruche
Cafe La Ruche
La Ruche is French for Beehive. And Café La Ruche is aptly named. You'll often find my bistro abuzz with laughter, convivial conversation, and good cheer. Of course, I make sure that's all punctuated with wonderful food, the best espresso and cappuccino in town, and our signature pastries. A bit of Paris on the Potomac. If you've not dropped by in a while, I invite you back. We'll work hard to make you a regular.

Carmine’s is a family style, value-driven restaurant concept with locations in NYC, NJ, Nassau Bahamas, and Washington DC. Restaurateur Artie Cutler created Carmine’s with one goal in mind: to open a restaurant that would serve every meal in the style of an Italian American wedding feast, featuring extra large portions of home-style antipasto, pastas, seafood and meat entrees served on extra large platters designed for sharing. Carmine’s is the perfect place to casually enjoy friends and family over great food and wine, with excellent service, the way it used to be at grandma’s house.

Rasika, which is derived from Sanskrit meaning "flavors,” is the award-winning modern Indian restaurant owned by Ashok Bajaj. Leading the kitchen is Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderam, a 2012 nominee for Best Chef Mid-Atlantic from the James Beard Foundation. Rasika has consistently earned four stars in the coveted Dining Guide of The Washington Post, and is in the top tier of Washingtonian magazine’s annual “100 Best.” Esquire magazine named it among the country’s best new restaurants in 2008 and Food & Wine magazine also stated that Rasika is “One of the hottest restaurants in the world.” Rasika showcases authentic Indian fare prepared on the Tawa (griddle), Sigri (open barbeque), as well as Tandoori and regional dishes. The restaurant is also noted for its international wine list, innovative cocktails and intimate, plush dining room. For private dining, Rasika has an exclusive space that can seat up to 16 guests and a semi-private area for up to 28.

Across from the historic New Haven Green, ZINC offers an innovative farm-to-table menu that celebrates the surrounding community. Sustainable food has been the focus of ZINC since opening its doors twelve years ago. They have since remained a fixture in the downtown landscape as a dining experience fit for the most enthusiastic of foodies. Co-Owners Donna Curran and Chef Denise Appel combine more than 20 years of experience to create a restaurant that reflects their passion for great local food and quality service. ZINC has evolved into one of the city’s most popular gathering spots for both local foodies and visiting ones.

Tucked away in Wilton's quaint Cannondale Village overlooking the babbling Norwalk river, the restaurant is located inside a schoolhouse built just after the civil war in 1872. The completely renovated and stylish interior reflects the elegant and thoughtful cuisine of Chef Tim LaBant whose focus is on searching out the finest ingredients from both local CT farms and exceptionally passionate farmers from around the nation.

"We're not from CT. I'd been there for a special family events several years back and wanted to take my girlfriend here when we were back in the area. Still a very nice little resto situated on a creek. Food is very well executed."

 Standard Tap
Standard Tap
When Standard Tap opened its doors in December 1999, our goal was simple: to create a neighborhood tavern that featured great beer and wholesome food. With that in mind, we offer a draft-only beer selection that highlights the vast array of styles crafted by breweries located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Our food menu both complements the beer and expands the notion of what pub food can be. We use only the best available produce, poultry, meats and seafood. Reservations are for our 2nd floor dining room only. Both bars and the first floor seating area are all unreserved seating. Our full menu is available throughout the restaurant.

"It took us an hour to get seated, order drinks, and get a starter & a couple of sandwiches. We were seated near the kitchen and there really wasn't much food moving through at all. As the neighborhood gentrifies, they'll need to step up their game or they're sunk. I say that but I'm also clear that, in the spirit of PT Barnum, nobody ever went broke in DC providing alcohol to Hill staffers.
As for the food, the poutine was good. Sandwiches were fine. My girl's tomato soup that accompanied her sandwich? I'll quote her - "it's rare that'll you'll hear me say I prefer Campbell's.""

Reservations are for the upstairs Izakaya only and not for the Ramen shop. <br /><br />The Izakaya is a full service restaurant featuring small plates of Japanese tavern fare, as well as a full bar with cocktails, wine, beer, and a large selection of sake and Japanese spirits.
