Espresso Neat in Darien is one of 10 food-serving establishments in western Connecticut named by the American Automobile Association as one of the top establishments in its rating category, the AAA announced on Tuesday. Espresso Neat is considered a “one diamond” establishment, which is the AAA category for quick-serve places. The restaurant in Grove Street Plaza serves coffee and food to go with it. “Those looking for the best latte or cappuccino outside of New York City should look no further than this artsy café,” the AAA said in its review. “Baristas are trained to prepare the perfect cup of gourmet coffee with an artful way of steaming milk to create impressive poured patterns such as leaves, tulips, and even hearts in your cup.”

In the wake of a crash last Friday in Southport, AAA Northeast strongly urges motorists to consider the potential danger emergency responders including tow truck drivers put themselves in when they assist disabled motorists on our interstates. “Connecticut has a “Slow Down, Move Over” law — which means just that,” said Fran Mayko, the spokeswoman for AAA Northeast, the regional affiliate of the American Automobile Association. ____________

“When a driver sees an emergency vehicle — whether it’s a state police cruiser, fire truck, ambulance, or a tow truck — with activated lights, drivers need to reasonably slow down below the speed limit,” she said. And if possible, they should move to the adjacent lane to give responders space to operate, she said. Last Friday evening, two parked AAA Northeast vehicles with emergency lights activated — a flatbed and battery van, assisting a disabled motorist on Interstate 95’s Exit 19 on ramp — were involved in a multi-vehicle crash.
