RIDGEFIELD, CONN. – Bailey’s Backyard is the winner of our DVlicious “Special Occasion Restaurant” contest.
The Ridgefield eatery won with 55 percent of the vote and will receive a DVlicious certificate.

December tends to be the time for holiday celebrations, end of year get-togethers, splurge-worthy Saturday nights and even marriage proposals. And Bailey’s Backyard is the go-to place in Fairfield.
Even if your occasion isn’t a “special” one, Bailey’s chef, who likes to mingle with the customers, makes it feel like one. Its barnyard chic decor has been described as cozy, sophisticated, casual and unique. The friendly wait staff is more than happy to explain the sourcing of ingredients for its farm-to-table dishes such as flourless goat cheese crepe with artichokes, crab chowder and beet salad.
