Best restaurant meal you ever ate
There's a restaurant in South Norwalk called Pasta Nostra. The food there is transcendent. Simple but the taste is so complex! I think it's because it's a very small restaurant and they can devote lots of time to cooking things for hours to build the flavor.
Eventually the owner was on Martha Stewart (like 1 town over from where she lived/lives in Westport).
There is an eggplant appetizer. I think they marinate the eggplant and then bake it with lots of garlic for hours and there are some tomatoes in there, too. It's amazing.
