With so many great restaurants in Fairfield County, it might be easy to overlook this long-standing landmark in Norwalk. But rest assured, you will be delighted that you were one of the first to rediscover this lovely spot nestled in The Norwalk Inn & Conference Center. The hotel was buzzing on the night we went, with private parties in the ballrooms and a reception in the glass-enclosed patio. The lobby was awash in warm wood tones, and the dining room was beautifully decorated and though quiet busy, wonderfully quiet. The best was yet to come -- the food. Our waiter, Brian, made sure our drinks came quickly as we poured over the menu which, uncharacteristic to newer, trendy spots, had a perfect selection of steaks, seafood, chicken and pastas. It was hard to decide, but everyone in our party managed to find exactly what they wanted - and everyone had something different. We all started with a salad: the caesar was one of the best we've had, and a signature salad with walnuts, gorgonzola, red onion, carrots and fresh greens was quickly gone from the plate. Our entrees were superb: the perfect cut of prime rib, a generous expertly cooked rib eye and NY Strip, Scallops over risotto, and homemade ravioli - an ample portion not found in "shee-shee" Italian joints. The entrees came with a full complement of roasted potatoes, carrots, and best of all, the rib-eye was topped with onion rings -- although the person who got them refused to share. Service was amazing: unobtrusive and efficient. Although everyone left not a bite on their plates; we opted to split a few chocolate cakes for dessert. Now, THIS was a serious slab of sweet - a combo of milk and dark chocolate cake, frosting, all atop a cookie crunch. Not a morsel remained. It's not often that a restaurant in a hotel, especially a small hometown Inn, can deliver on a five star meal. And all for less than $30/head. Adam's Rib is just that place. But don't tell too many people; this is a secret treasure to keep to yourself.
