It’s hard to believe, but sometimes Renato and I aren’t together. Shocker, I know. Recently while he was away on business, I decided to throw on my party shoes, grab a friend and head to a VIP tasting dinner at Bistro 7 in Wilton.
So, without further adieu, here is her first official food blogger recap!
Bistro 7 Restaurant + Bar in Wilton has paired adventurous small plates with appealing cocktails. The atmosphere of the restaurant, with its warm and gracious servers, made for an evening of unexpected delight. Their philosophy is farm to fork with an essence of sophistication and creativity. And creativity they have!
|Beef + Gouda Risotto Ball|
Pairings such as the Beef and Gouda Risotto Ball, Lentil Soup, and an over the top layered Butterscotch Pudding were delicious set to organic wines, beers, and cocktails from fresh juices and fruits. Owner Breno Donatti carefully selects the wines he serves in his trendy restaurant.
|Pork Meatball Skewer with pickled onion|
As I was served the Monte de Luz Syrah from Uruguay, our waiter commented, “It’s not like a regular Syrah, it has sweetness to it”. This flavorful wine combined with the Pork Meatball Skewer and pickled pearl onion demonstrates the appealing accoutrement that make the dish so different and innovative.

In its entirety, I enjoyed the knowledgeable owner who has a vision of healthy and comforting foods in an atmosphere that caters to families as well as the couples scene.
