Food scene - Most in "The ave" and within walking distance from the house with plenty outdoor seating

A longer walk than to Greenwich Ave ( about 17 minutes - you might want to drive here) you will find Fine French dining in the Delamar Hotel, with outdoor waterside seating & an elegant interior space. The view is spectacular and the food just as good, They have live music on weekends. Reservations strongly recommended

This quaint side of Greenwich is a must see if you enjoy historic towns. With plenty of restaurants/ coffee shops/ and shops to explore I certainly recommend you check out Old Greenwich (and it's beautiful beach)
