The anticipation is killing us – Bar Rosso, Stamford

13 Nov

Update:  Bar Rosso is now open! Check out our review for the Omnomability!

Maybe we’re a little obsessed, but we’re counting down the days to the grand opening of Bar Rosso in Stamford (where Bennett’s Steakhouse use to be). In case you haven’t heard, (what, you’re all not as infatuated by food as we are?), Bar Rosso is a new Italian tapas restaurant started by the ingenious creators of Napa & Co. Not too many details have been released yet, other than a wood burning pizza oven, over 250 wines (OMG), homemade pasta, homemade limonecello, and a 50 ft. bar that’s sure to be quite the scene! Our fingers are crossed that the menu and wine selections are as creative and exciting as Napa & Co, but at a more affordable cost so we can eat there OFTEN!

You can follow the progress with us on their blog.

    I’m with you and am literally counting down the moments until Bar Rosso opens. I hear December but no exact date yet. Let the stalking begin!

      So glad December is right around the corner. : ) It felt like we were waiting a year for Fairway to open up!

    I think one of the best things that will come out of this restaurant will be the extensive Italian wine list. We’re talking, according to their blog, about 250 different bottles! I agree with the people that say you should drink the wine that is closest in location to where the food you are having is from. So, as a general rule, have some nice Italian wines with your veal or pasta. I love finding new types of wine and places like this are perfect for that!
