Grilled Clams with White Wine and Butter

While our patio furniture has been tucked away until next year, our grill remains outside and ready for action. These last few Fall days have been perfectly sunny and warm.

We took full advantage of the seasonably warm temps to continue our new weekly tradition of grilling up some local clams.

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.
