  1. I know I will be eating at Fiore and at least 2 other places this weekend. Hard to choose! Great fundraising idea!

  2. A New England Emporrium lunch is scheduled and heading to Fiore for dinner. Hoping to squeeze in a visit to Esca too! Wish I could hit them all. Hoping everyone enjoys lunch or dinner out this weekend at one of these great restaurants generously supporting Green Street!

  3. Definitely planning on New England Emporium for lunch, then likely Mikado and one other. Super excited about this easy way to give to Green Street.

  4. I will be going to The New England Emporium! I teach a night class at Middletown Adult Ed and stop in for a hot Peppermint tea right before class.

    I am a huge fan of their gluten-free crepes, and my daughter loves their gift shop!

  5. LOVE this idea, pairing two of my favorite things: good food and Green Street! Had New England Emporium for lunch and looking forward to grabbing a glass of wine and some apps at Esca tomorrow. And how can I not try to get to my favorite place, Puerto Vallarta? Ah! So many good choices, so little time!
