Three brand new greater Danbury area restaurants have just been rated outstanding by Connecticut Magazine.

I always look forward to Connecticut Magazine's "Best Restaurants" edition as they kick off a brand new year and best of all, the restaurant reviews are delivered by two different sources, the food experts and the magazine's readers.
