My local favorites:

Le Farm, Westport, CT - $20 corkage.

Nicholas Roberts, Norwalk, CT - $5 corkage, free if you buy from their store.

Neither has particularly good glassware.

Others?

Yep. Good food. I offered a pour of Sojourn pinot noir to the owner. I think he prefers serious Italian reds to California pinos.
