Welcome to the first-ever Townsquare Media of Danbury Restaurant Week

Each day, from Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26, we'll feature absolutely unbeatable deals (and some giveaways) from some of the very best restaurants in the area.

Today, KICKS 105.5's Mr. Morning welcomed the crew from both Lucas Local Oyster Shop and Woodfire Cookery in Newtown and Centrico Taqueria & Tequila Bar in Bethel.

During a live interview with Vincent, the owner, and Executive Chef Brett, they explained what both of their trendy local restaurants are like and what they have to offer. They also offer up a chance for YOU to win a gift card that works for both their establishments.

Before you check out Vincent and Brett's full interview below, here are some of the highlights:

  • "At Lucas Local, were coming up on our second year -- it's a seafood-centric restaurant and oyster bar. We offer a very unique sort of food, chef Brett is amazing, our team is amazing, we really kill it every day." - Vincent
  • "We really try to do a seasonal, hyper-seasonal menu. We change with the seasons and try to do a lot of local and sustainable heavy seafood, and we do specials every night. We try to do a twist of classic dishes and create new stuff, and keep everybody happy" - Brett
  • "The best sauce to put on our oysters is the classic mignonette, which is basically a vinegar and chalet base sauce." - Brett
  • "MMM - thats good. Thats how you eat an oyster. Thats good stuff!" - Mr. Morning
