Fairfield, CT —
The Perfect Saturday in Fairfield

Start with breakfast at the Driftwood Coffee Shop. It's a throwback old school Southport luncheonette, serving up delicious food in booths and round leather bar stools. Or just around the corner, have a cozy fall/winter brunch by the fire at the Gray Goose, a popular neighborhood haunt from morning til night. I get the corn flake french toast with local apples, cinnamon & vanilla bean butter. OH yes! At nighttime, this same spot heats up with a thirsty crowd enjoying cocktails on the front porch and inside at the bar.

After brunch, I’d zip to downtown Fairfield for some shopping. Embrace the Connecticut prep at Eliza B with poppy colors, custom sandals, purses, dog collars and headbands. Across the street is women’s clothing shop mainstay, The Snappy Gator, with shoes, bags and dresswear exhibiting timeless taste, a discerning quality and an all-around fresh feel.

For dinner, I’d highly recommend the Artisan at the Delamar Hotel in Southport. You can usually dine al fresco because of the heating lamps and fire pits dotting the outdoor seating area. Inside I like to grab a corner booth with my husband below the enormous handpainted mural of white tulips. We order the crab cake “a la plancha” with coriander chutney and avocado, the sea scallop risotto with English peas and the catch of the day with chorizo, mussels & calamari.

On our way home, we’ll stop at super popular Bodega in downtown Fairfield. Their Bodega Girl margarita is mixed with a strawberry-cilantro mash and my husband gets their Cabo Wabo Anejo on the rocks with lime.
