Dina is a mom of 3 who left her corporate job to start a stump grinding business. She is badass and SO good at what she does. If you’re looking to get rid of stumps, I can’t recommend her more highly.
I can’t believe it took me so long to try this ladies-who-lunch hotspot because it really is fantastic. They serve delicious breakfast and lunch options and have a ton of baked goods like delicious, buttery chocolate chip cookies, and mini cupcakes for the kiddos. I highly recommend the buddha bowl, a healthy lunch option that is filling and flavorful. And I’ve heard that the breakfast burrito is the best in town!
Green & Tonic
When I worked in an office, I would stop here every day for breakfast and lunch for takeout. They have great fresh jucies, smoothies, acai bowls, and vegan salads and meals.
Southend’s farm-to-table menu is surprisingly good compared to what the restaurant looks like from the outside. I like to sit outside in warmer months for cocktails and apps with girlfriends. I recommend the little gem Caesar salad, the burger, and the local burrata.
For a non-organic mani-pedi experience, Nails Hollywood in New Canaan is your place. They give the most luxurious back massages while you get your nails done and they do an impeccable job. It’s my go-to spot.
BA Skin Lab
It took me 3 years to find a good local facial but I’ve finally found it with Barbara at BA Skin Lab. I walk out looking 5 years younger every time and my skin has never looked better. They sell Biologique Recherche products, so if you’re not interested in buying anything just note that at the beginning.
