Elm in New Canaan, Connecticut serves seasonal American cuisine. You won't find a huge menu at Elm, but there is more than enough to pique your taste buds. If you're just looking for a snack, try the shishito peppers, marinated olives or tandoori chicken liver mousse. If your appetite is a bit bigger, you might enjoy a small plate of tuna tartare, a salad of autumn greens with feta or perhaps the rutabaga soup.
Bigger appetites will also be well-satisfied at Elm, with offerings like gnocchetti sardi, spaghetti al pepperoncino or a large dry aged burger. The pumpkin risotto, short lamb ribs and the veal scaloppini are also sure to please.
Horrible. Bread came before drinks. Apps served within seconds of the drinks and entrees brought while we were eating appetizers. Horrible. Hubs and I ordered the same meal but they looked totally different. Horrible. Not the same since the former owner left. Horrible.
Went for lunch twice recently - really good sandwiches. Quiet enough to enjoy catching up with a business friend I haven't seen in a while. Looking forward to giving it a try for dinner. Definitely would go back.
Overall the restaurant, service, and ambiance was wonderful. I had the veal dish and felt that it was overdone, too oily, and too expensive. It would if wonderful if the dishes were more healthy/fresh.
