NY Times Reviews New Canaan Diner: 'Excellent'

A restaurant review in the New York Times on Sunday praises nearby eateries in New Canaan, Darien and Greenwich.


New Canaan Diner, a popular eatery in town since 2009, recently snagged a positive, if brief, accolade from the New York Times' regional restaurant reviewer, Patricia Brooks.

The review described three restaurants—the New Canaan Diner, Estia's in Darien, and L'Escale in the Delmar Hotel in Greenwich—as eateries that "offer excellent meals in a range of styles."

Brooks describes the atmosphere inside the restaurant, calling it "1950s-style, with black-and-white tile floors, marble countertops, shiny chrome fixtures and vintage canned music" with a pleasant outdoor seating area to do some people-watching. 

The Times reviewer noted the "smorgasbord of choices" on the menu, singling out the Alaska Benedict - two poached eggs, smoked salmon and a slice of tomato atop an English muffin - for particularly hungry folks.  

Previously, the restaurant was noticed by CT Post in 2010

Brooks' most recent review of a New Canaan restaurant was of  in March and, before that, she wrote a review for the renovated in late 2011. Other Connecticut restaurant reviews from the Times are available on the newspaper's website.
