We loved our experience at Nouveau Monde! An exceptional find in the Newtown/Southbury area. The gourmet dishes were balanced with the restaurants warm, intimate environment. Fantastic food, extensive wine list, and impeccable service. We will return, soon!

This has become our go-to place for a tasty meal in a peaceful setting. The food has consistently been very innovative and the wines are superb. I'd say it is an environment more appropriate for adults. I do wish there were more vegetarian options. Also,...More
