When Anthony Luciani told us about his plans to open up a new place in Stamford, were were excited. When he told us that he was weeks away from finishing we were more excited. When he told us that Mr. Frosty’s in Stamford was open we couldn’t contain our excitement so we drove down to Harbor Point, mouths open and watering.
Now, it’s a bit hard to find so here are some clues. The addy is 200 Commons Park South, across from 101 Park Place. Head down Washington and find a place to park by the new Walgreens mini-shop or the parking lot nearby. When you cross the street you’ll see 101 Park Place, a sign for Commons Park, and what looks like a newsstand. Except, this ain’t no newsstand, this is Harbor Point’s new heaven for all things breakfast, grub, and ice cream. Yes, walk on down the path and you’ll see the brand new Mr. Frosty’s! Around the area is a beautifully lit fountain, a playground, plenty of walls where you can sit, trails, and a table where you can munch on some food and ice cream.
So, it’s just like Mr. Frosty’s in Norwalk: walk up to the menu, check out what they have to offer, order, then eat. Here’s a list so you can be prepared:
• Burgers (with a list of toppings)
• Hot Dogs
• Breakfast (oh yes, they just did make you a complete addict)
• Soft ice cream and sundaes (hard ice cream coming soon)
• Milkshakes and tornadoes
• Seafood of the Day, Shake of the Week, Tornado of the Week, and Today’s Special
You feeling us? It’s the best of both worlds: the awesomeness of Beach Burger paired with the frosty goodness of Mr. Frosty’s. We got our grub on with a classic burger for Kristien and the Chili Cheeseburger for me. If you pay close attention, you might notice a slight difference in the taste. Beach Burger in Norwalk uses a flat grill, but Mr. Frosty’s in Stamford charbroils their burgers. Anthony is noticing a good difference in the burgers and is a fan of the charbroil grill. Aside from that, the flavors remain true and carry over nicely from the burgers. Kristien got a yummy Banana Foster shake and I went crazy with a candy lover’s dream: The Magic Potion.
Be aware that, just for a bit, Mr. Frosty’s in Stamford will only be serving Chocolate, Vanilla, and Swirl soft serve (you can still get all sundaes and shakes) because their freezer to hold their yummy ice cream hasn’t arrived yet. When that comes in, though, you’ll be able to get ice cream practically any time of the day. Wake up, feel like a banana split? They’ll have you covered. Want a lunch of a root beer float? They’re there for ya! Want to finish off your dinner with an ice cream? Well, you know the rest.
So, stop on by and check out the new kid on the block. Just remember, they are open from March-November and it’s outdoor seating only. The prices are good, they are open practically the entire day, and there’s something yummy on the menu for everybody. Here’s to much success, Mr. Frosty’s!
