Best of Greenwich

FOOD & DRINKS

LITTLE PUB
Best Burger

With three restaurants in Fairfield County, including the newest in Cos Cob, which opened last summer, Little Pub’s executive chef Tim Passarro knows a thing or two about creating a great burger—about 3,000 a week. We asked Chef Tim for tips on replicating Little Pub’s iconic patty at home. 531 East Putnam Ave., 203-717-1147; littlepub.co

DREAM SPA & SALON
Best Facial
The best day spas are those that make clients feel like they’ve gone off the grid for a while. Devotees of Lori Dodd’s Dream Spa in Greenwich love the full menu of restorative scrubs, peels, wraps and more. With summer in full swing, we thought this was a good time to ask Lori to share some skin care basics. 151 Greenwich Avenue, 203-629-2525; dreamdayspa.com

DIANE’S BOOKS
Best Bookstore
When it comes to classic reads for middle-schoolers, several come to mind: The Secret Garden, The Borrowers, The Chronicles of Narnia. We asked Diane Garrett, the go-to source for all things literary, to pick a crop of new classics for the preteen set. Geared toward ages ten to twelve, “these books consistently turn up on school reading lists,” she says. In each case, the story lines are strong, the language is good, and the characters are engaging.” The topics are all over the map—moral dilemmas, coming-of-age stories, race exploration and dystopian fiction. There’s even good-old-fashioned magic. 8A Grigg St., 203-869-1515; dianesbooks.com
