If you love Asian fusion cuisine, Tao has many locations. I reviewed TAO in Uncasville Connecticut. This is very close to Gales Ferry, where I spent most of my time. The interior design of TAO is exotic, you’ll feel like you are in another country. Also it is located in the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort, so you may as well make a night of it.

Finally, let’s not forget about Los Angeles, which offers a plethora of fantastic upscale restaurants. The Four Seasons is legendary. It’s restaurant Culina does an exceptional job of keeping a fresh rotating menu of seasonal fare. Also the resident sommelier can advise you on a perfect pairing for each course. I love the pairing that was selected for me. CLICK HERE to read my restaurant review.
