My favorite restaurant and favorite gallery in Chester are doing a temporary combo act. Whaaa? Mixed feelings here … either they’re both wrecked or they’ve pulled off something very special. I won’t be able to make it, but I’d be interested to know if this was successful.
River Tavern is in cahoots with my favorite (or many in the top 3?) Chester art gallery. I hate to gush, but the eo is just too hip. (I also have a strong affection for the Chester Gallery, across the street, down the road and up some stone steps.) Chester is the place no one in Fairfield County knows about — except me. It’s what Essex used to be before the New York Times ruined it with one of their “If You’re Thinking of Living In…” pieces.
This came over today:
In a bold move, River Tavern has temporarily closed its doors for spring cleaning and will stage four nights of guerrilla dinners at eo art lab only a 100 yards down the street. The gallery, located at 69 Main Street Chester, has been transformed into a stunning dining room and will begin dinner service tonight at 5:30 p.m. Food will be cooked fresh off the popular Dinners-at-the-Farm cook truck. Our usual half price specials and great wines and drinks will continue. And in celebration of the new Chester Museum at the Mill, River Tavern will be donating $2,000 of this week’s dinner proceeds. Come join us for this one-of-a-kind dining experience. Ends Thursday night.

Has City Lights and Ralph N Rich’s seen this? Black Rock Gallery and Tavolini? Hmmm.
