Insider Dish
You may be familiar with these delicious destinations, but we have the inside track on how to get the biggest bite from them.

1. Sometimes the best way to celebrate family night is to get the family out of the house. Morello’s is offering a Sunday Night Supper ($20 for adults, $10 for kids) featuring spaghetti and meatballs and a Caesar or green salad, all served family-style. *Morello Italian Bistro, 253 Greenwich Avenue; (203) 661-3443; morellobistro.com

2. Gather your Greenwich girlfriends—and appoint a designated driver—because savvy sippers flock to Terra and Mediterraneo on Tuesdays for Half-Price Vino on bottles under $100. *Terra, 156 Greenwich Avenue; (203) 629-5222; *Mediterraneo, 366 Greenwich Avenue; (203) 629-4747; zhospitalitygroup.com

3. A handful of upscale kitchens in town say they stay open as late as 10-ish on a weekday, but frequently disappoint. Those who don’t like to hear “no” depend on Polpo’s Full Menu ’Til 11 p.m. Order up the crisped-to-perfection veal milanese and call in late to work in the morning. *Polpo Restaurant, 554 Old Post Rd No. 3; (203) 629-1999; polporestaurant.com

4. It’s cold, you’re tired, and in no mood to pull an Ina Garten tonight. Dirty little secret: Fake it with Villa Nuova’s (formerly Villarina’s) gourmet Pre-Made Dinners (the shop has everything from fresh pasta to gluten-free chicken parm). Fill up your freezer—you’ll thank yourself during the next snowstorm. *Villa Nuova, 551 East Putnam Avenue, Cos Cob; (203) 422-0174; villanuovact.com
