Greenwich, Connecticut is an amazing place to travel anytime of the year, but I highly recommend visiting during the summer to enjoy the outdoor and waterfront dining as well as explore the town. Greenwich is the perfect weekend getaway for those who live in New York City as it is only a forty-five minute drive from the Big Apple.

L'escale - is a fantastic French restaurant located on The Greenwich Harbor serving Mediterranean cuisine and outstanding drinks. This waterfront restaurant has a beautiful terrace for outdoor dining with a picture perfect view. The upbeat atmosphere, beautiful decor and first-class service will make you feel like you are on a laid back vacation in addition to enjoying a delicious meal.

Happy Monkey By Jean-Georges - is a fun, artsy and trendy Latin restaurant located on downtown Greenwich's main street. Happy Monkey has great appetizers, salads and drinks. The interior design of Jean-Georges' restaurant is one of the highlights of the restaurant - from the larger than life Frida Kahlo mural on the back wall (as pictured above) to the gorgeous and eye-catching green velvet booth seating, ceiling hung plants and precious bar. The restaurant was designed with an eye for every detail!

Ruby & Bella - is a magnificent dinner restaurant with top-tier service and top-quality food, all of which is plated beautifully. Ruby and Bella's has an outstanding menu. I highly recommend an extended meal at this chic restaurant. If it is a warm evening, I suggest enjoying your meal outside. Ruby and Bella's has delicious hummus, pastas, burgers, seafood and more!
