about

The Chelsea just celebrated its 5-year anniversary and was recently awarded the 2018 Best Restaurant in Fairfield by Fairfield Magazine's first ever Reader's Poll. Since opening in 2012 The Chelsea has received praise from The New York Times (Patricia Brooks only complaint was that it wasn’t closer to her home) and many other publications. Owner Scott Beck (original co-owner of Match in South Norwalk and Little Barn in Westport) and Executive Chef Eric Felitto continue to produce delicious innovative spins on classic dishes and provide great service, maintaining The Chelsea’s reputation as one of Fairfield County's favorite dining destinations.
