It's A Whole New Bistro Seven

We're longtime fans of Bistro Seven in Wilton. With a work client just down the road, yes, we have scheduled video shoots so that they would end just around Happy Hour time so we could stop in for a cocktail and nosh on our way home. The last few times we'd been in, while it had been good, it just felt like something was missing.

When we heard from owner Breno Donatti that he was planning a reboot of Bistro Seven we were excited to hear it. So, what's new? Well, new chefs, a new menu and new local food purveyors.

Apple Pie In A Glass

I don't have a big sweet tooth but boy there is something about apple pie in the Fall that I just cannot resist. And while, yes, I have had cold apple pie for breakfast, I thought maybe there was a way to get the same flavors in a slightly healthier way.
