Two Norwalk Landmark Restaurants Close, Have Plans for Future

The Bynum Burger...'nuff said

The Bynum Burger at Beach Burger

We’re very sad to report that two of the most popular places in Norwalk, and arguably Fairfield County, are now closed for business.  First off, we found out about Beach Burger right before New Year’s.  As we were putting together our year end awards, we needed to look up some info about Beach Burger and noticed the site was down and there was no answer at the restaurant.  Anthony Luciani confirmed our fears, saying that Beach Burger had closed for business.  The location wasn’t providing him with the kind of traffic that he needed for the restaurant to be a success, but there’s still hope.  You can still get a taste of Beach Burger at the seasonally opened Mr. Frosty’s in Norwalk and Stamford.  Plus, you never know where a new Beach Burger might pop up. We wish Anthony and his staff lots of luck and know this won’t be the end…not one bit.

Dan, Jeff, and Kristien

Also, we are sad to share that Jeff’s Cuisine in SoNo has closed its doors.  When we hit up The Spread last night, we saw the lights out and we resolved to check into things.  Turns out that Jeff sent a message on FB to all his friends, family, and fans, explaining the closure:  “We will miss the community and the parking tickets (smile), but look forward to re-structuring and to our future opportunities, including on-site catering, special events, cooking demonstrations and personal chef services with Chef Jeff, specializing in southern cuisine.”  Jeff asks if you have any more questions to call him up at (203) 852-0041 or visit his site.  Jeff, like Anthony, is a really nice guy and makes you feel like you’ve been friends forever when you talk.  We wish you and your staff well, Jeff, and look forward to what you’ve got in store for the world next.

So, while Norwalk is missing two great restaurants that served up amazing burgers, shakes, fries, bbq, sweet tea, and sides, we know it’s not the end…we know that it’s just another beginning.

    Not sure how the pizza comment relates but will throw in my two cents that I’d gladly take a GOOD pizza place, however those are far and few between.

    Sorry to hear of these closures. Seems like a rough time for the restaurant biz. I’ve seen quite a few new places open up only to close.

    Speaking of which, have you been to John Dough? Sadly I think they’re next. I had takeout once and wasn’t a fan, but my opinion (sadly) does not rule the world. :)

      The pizza comment came up because a pizza place is coming in where Beach Burger was. We haven’t been to John Dough yet. We have heard some good things, and some “not-ok” like yours. We’ll have to try ourselves. Your opinion might not rule the world, but it certainly counts. :) Even ours doesn’t rule the world…maybe just North America…but not the world… :P

        North America is logical.
        Will have to get more info about the pizza place to come since I know the sig other will say something along the lines of “I really need to open a place”, which is what he said every time someone tries to open a pizza spot.

    Excited to see another pizza place move into beach burger’s spot. If there’s something we need it’s another pizza place. The other 10 in the 5mile radius just weren’t enough.

      Pete, can sense your sarcasm there. Man, we know about it…so many pizza shops. The pizza place has nothing to do with Beach Burger or Anthony, though…
