Darien Soundings

Dear Darien,

Darien REALTORS have joined forces with the CT REALTORS Foundation to help end homelessness in Connecticut. The 6th annual campaign is underway! Each year, the CT REALTORS® Foundation partners with the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness to help keep local families in their homes throughout the year and avoid the trauma of homelessness. As an added bonus, the Foundation will donate a stuffed Paddington bear to a child in a shelter this holiday season for every $25 that is donated. Learn some easy ways that you and your community can help support "be homeful for the holidays." Or donate here today.

Watch this video to learn more about the campaign.


Meet Nube Siguenza, the chef and owner of Scena. Nube began studying with several top chefs in New York and Connecticut, and taking classes at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. It was there that she developed her innate talent for pairing new and flavorful accompaniments and side dishes to enliven traditional Italian old-world foods.

Scena opened in downtown Darien in September 2010. Scena offers a Mediterranean-inspired experience with a warm, open wood-fired brick oven, a crafted wine and cocktail list, fresh ingredients, and exceptional experience. The atmosphere draws you in but the food makes you stay. Check out their menu and visit Scena at 1077 Post Road.
