Schoolhouse at Cannondale is one of my favorite restaurants in Fairfield County. We visited a few weeks ago and discovered the Thursday night menu: 4 courses for $40.  The restaurant also serves lunch on Fridays and Saturdays along with a brunch menu on Sunday. Be sure to check their website for the hours and to be safe, nab a reservation on Open Table.

The lunch menu has only a few selections, but it still feels like a special meal in this cozy dining room. Though I prefer dinner here, I love visiting when the sunlight streams in through the windows. Or better yet, I’ll be ready to return when the patio opens up.
