Be a Part of the Action as Colony Grill Appears on National TV – Stamford, CT

Sausage, hot oil, stingers, cherry peppers, and onions at Colony Grill

Sausage, hot oil, stingers, cherry peppers, and onions at Colony Grill

Colony Grill in Stamford has long been one of the pizza places that people throughout Connecticut (and beyond) talk about, many arguing that it’s the best.  Maybe it’s the hot oil, maybe it’s the fresh sausage made right across the street, or maybe it’s just the no-frills attitude of a simple menu of just ingredients…whatever the maybe is, it’s hard to find a person who hasn’t at least tried Colony’s pizza.  Well, it seems that more people will be on to this pizza joint with the filming of a national TV show.  While the specifics of the show aren’t out yet, you can try to get into the background or maybe you’ll even be one of the lucky people who gets interviewed during the taping next week.  Yes, just show up for lunch at 11:30 am on Wednesday, 1/9 and you can witness the taping.

As you know, there always seems to be a wait at Colony Grill Stamford, so if you want to take a part in the TV magic, make sure you get there early.  Just think, this could be the start of your big career as a commentator on food shows.  Think of what you’ll say now and practice, practice, practice. :)  If you want some advice about what to talk about, check out our first review of Colony Grill, Stamford or our take on the Riko’s Pizza controversy.

Keep on noming!

Colony Grill to Serve Breakfast Pizza Before Memorial Day Parade – Fairfield, CT

16 May

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”                                        Joseph Campbell

You know the list of ingredients to choose from at Colony Grill:

Meatball, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, onions, black olives, cherry peppers, stingers, hot oil, anchovies, peppers, and bacon.

Well, they’re adding a few more into the mix this Memorial Day, 5/28.  At their Fairfield location on Post Road starting at 8:30 am, you’ll be able to get two new pies.  You can either have the bacon & egg pie or the sausage & egg pie.  Nothing says morning like a breakfast pizza!

Now, imagine this with sausage and egg…

Then, once you’ve had your fill, head outside to watch the parade that starts at 10.  The parade will march along east down Post Road to the library, then head south and east down Old Post Road, passing Town Hall Green.

Don’t forget that Memorial Day isn’t just a day when you don’t have to go to work…it’s a day to remember and honor those who died fighting for us and our freedom.  I’m very fortunate to still have my dad.  As a Marine, he fought in Vietnam and earned two purple hearts.  Oorah!

So, drive on down to Colony Grill in Fairfield, have one or more breakfast pizzas with your friends and family, then check out the parade together.
