A bacon wrapped hot dog with guacamole, pico de gallo, and jalapeno (Tijuana Dog) can soon be yours in Stamford!
Update: Today and tomorrow are soft openings in preparation for Friday’s Grand Opening of Mr. Frosty’s! Who’s in?
Directions: read the following question then choose the best answer.
1) Add one part Mr. Frosty’s in Norwalk, mix in a second part The Beach Burger, then dash in some Harbor Point Stamford and guess what you get?
A) A ridiculously, magically delicious restaurant that rivals the awesomeness of unicorns.
B) Another reason to visit Stamford.
C) Another reason to be alive.
D) All of the above.
If you are any good at these kinds of questions, you picked D. Let’s show you why D is correct. Restaurant owner, Anthony Luciani gave us the exclusive scoop:
Anthony Luciani has the magic touch. Mr. Frosty’s, on 6 1st Street in Norwalk, has a devoted following and we’ve never seen it empty. Maybe it’s the 3o or so hard ice cream, sherbert, and sorbert flavors, or maybe it’s their soft serve and froyo options, their bountiful sundaes, or their thick whipped razzles? Nah, couldn’t be.
But even more magical is his other joint, The Beach Burger, right next door. They are the 2011 OmNomy Winner for Best Burger. It’s hard to go wrong here: from the Bynum Burger, to the classic Beach Burger, to an oyster-laden Surf & Turf Burger. But, they also have some killer hot dogs, such as the Tijuana dog that has a bacon wrapped wiener, guacamole, jalapenos, and pico de gallo. Our other favorite thing to order are their killer milkshakes. Apple Pie, PB&J, and Nut Crusher are our great loves that we dream of as we go to sleep. Plus, they’ve got some really great seafood dishes Kristien raves about like lobster, oyster and clam rolls.
So, why have I told you so much about both spots?
Well, if the title and the first question didn’t already give it away, both will come together in Anthony’s new spot on 100 Washington Boulevard in the Harbor Point part of Stamford. It’s a very similar set up to Mr. Frosty’s in Norwalk: you’ll walk up to the window, place your order, then take your food and take a seat at one of the picnic benches outside. Don’t limit yourself, though. Just walk about a block and you’ll be right on the docks and can stroll along and chomp on a burger, sip on a shake, or tackle a monster sundae.
You’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful spring, summer, and fall with them because they’ll be open from March through November, too. Anthony is still tweaking the menu a bit, but you’ll have nearly all the same options from The Beach Burger in your gluttonous arsenal as well as pretty much all the ice creams from Mr. Frosty’s.
