The Good, the Guac, and the Emme: OmNomable Guide for Stamford Winter Restaurant Week ’11

24 Feb

Fresh Guacamole from Riviera Maya!!!

Finally, the time has come, the time we’ve been waiting for.  Winter Restaurant Week in Stamford Downtown!  Take this for what it is:  a nice, inexpensive way to try out that restaurant you’ve been dying to get to or be daring a try something completely alien to you.  Here are the times to go hog-wild:  2/27-3/13!!!  Some of the places that we wouldn’t mind hitting again:

Capriccio Cafe ($10.11 lunch/$15.11 dinner)

Restaurant Week Menu

Great pizza, great food, really awesome in the summer when you can sit outside and chill.  Now you’d freeze instead of chill, but the food is still great.

Lola’s Mexican Kitchen ($10.11 lunch/$15.11 dinner)

Restaurant Week Menu

Our previous review gave this new restaurant in Stamford 3.5 Noms.  I’d like to see if they’ve worked their way up!

—–

Quattro Pazzi  ($15.11 lunch/$25.11 dinner, only Sun-Thurs)

We ate here and the food was very good…would like to try again.

Riviera Maya Mexican Restaurant ($15.11 lunch/$25.11 dinner)

Restaurant Week Menu

We also gave Riviera Maya 3.5 Noms.  Their margaritas are truly killer and the guac is customizable, made right in front of you!

Tengda Asian Bistro ($15.11 lunch/$25.11 dinner)

Restaurant Week Menu

The food here is good and has the benefit of having sushi and other Chinese goodness combined.

—–

Columbus Park Trattoria  ($20.11 lunch/$30.11 dinner)

When we went here for a previous Restaurant Week we were blown away by the Squid Ink Pasta.  I dream about it.

—–

Emme of Capri  ($20.11 lunch/$30.11 dinner)

Restaurant Week Menu

We had an excellent waiter the last time we went here for Restaurant Week.  He gave us a great Sicilian wine reco and the food was really good.  It was a really nice and quaint place, very charming and romantic.

—–

Eos Greek Cuisine  ($20.11 lunch/$30.11 dinner, only Sun-Thurs)

Restaurant Week Menu

No doubt, best Greek place in the area.  Whereas I dream about the Squid Ink Pasta, I dream of Eos’ Grilled Calamari and Lemon Potatoes.

—–

Napa & co. ($20.11 lunch)

Restaurant Week Menu

A Stamford classic and mainstay.  The branzini with bacon on the menu looks great and your meal even comes with Domaine Ste Michelle Sparkling Brut.

      No doubt Darryl. There is usually a nice one in summer or fall with some great choices in Norwalk, especially right by you. Here’s last year’s info. When we get info on this year’s event, we’ll make it easier to digest. ;)

      Did you get banned from Norwalk Darryl when you wrecked that bar with Future Darryl in 2013?
