PRIVATE AFFAIRS

Looking to throw a private dinner or party? Here is a handful of venues, each with its unique vibe, from private rooms at Bonda, The Goose and Townhouse to the charming Ned Dimes Marina Clubhouse (which may seem small, but this writer has personally tested it as a roller rink and proven it’s bigger than it looks) to the bright farm-to-table party space with a chef’s kitchen that is Tim’s Kitchen at Wakeman Town Farms.

CATERING WITH A TWIST

There are numerous wonderful Fairfield County caterers, but here are a few fun ones you may not have tried yet.

Crepes Choupette will give your party Parisian flair with its French crepe food cart. Fine and Dandy offers its popular “elegant dinner party in a box”—with elegant being the operative word—as well as complete in-house culinary services. For a catered party of Mexican and fusion fare, Tumu’s spread is fresh, delicious and gorgeous.
