There are lots of great things going on at Brick + Wood in Fairfield, people! First up, something that we are so very excited about is their new chef: Jes Bengston. You might know that name because Jes has been the chef at The Granola Bar and recently was honored at the Greenwich Wine & Food Festival by being named to a select group of the Most Innovative Chefs of 2015. She started working at Brick + Wood a few weeks back, but was officially announced as chef just a few days ago. 

In addition, this week marks the first year anniversary for Brick + Wood! They will be celebrating all week (11/3-8) with specials and deals on food and drinks, so you’ll want to come by every day. ;)  When you stop by during the weekend, you’ll not only get to check out their brand spanking new mobile pizza oven (yes, you can have them come to your party!), but you’ll also get to snag and destroy FREE dessert pizzas. 

And, finally, you will get your shot at having a pizza of your own on the menu for a day with The Guest Chef Series! Just visit here, give your pizza a name, give the ingredients, and answer a few more questions and you’ll be put into the running. Wrapping things up, the Guest Chef Series today (11/4) will be Chef Neil Fuentes of Jojoto in Branford who will be making his own special pizza, no doubt with a little Venezuelan flava. 

Congratulations on your first year and congratulations to Chef Jes!

From there, a handful of other chefs and one awesome restaurant owner and BBQ boss will work with the chef and owner of Brick + Wood, Paolo Cavalli, on a pizza that highlights the chefs’ tastes and creativity down to their core.

Look, there are tons of Italian restaurants in CT, especially in Fairfield County. Some of ’em you can love, some you can just like, and some you can say aren’t even as good as Olive Garden (and that’s saying something). Well, after our press dinner we think Brick + Wood, the newest Italian spot to open in Fairfield in November 2014, is one you can love. We’re gonna break down the reasons why . . .
