The brunch stakes have been raised, Fairfield County @ Amore Cucina + Bar – Stamford, CT

That title is pretty much ’nuff said for our review of Sunday brunch at Amore Cucina & Bar (11-3), but in typical OmNomCT style, we’re going to give ya every mouth-watering detail just in case you’re one of those people that needs to see their odds of a killer meal before they place their bets on a new spot.

First off, let’s talk drinks. In addition to their regular drink menu, they also have a plethora of brunch must-haves: a soon-to-be famous bloody Mary bar with 40 different toppings and bottomless mimosas and bellinis in various flavors for $15. Then they get even more creative with some surprises: Magic Milk, featuring brandy, milk, vanilla bean, and chocolate, and different shots too, including a breakfast shot, which Chef Jared Falco (a French Culinary Institute grad and former Executive Chef at Washington Prime) lined up for us a couple times throughout our brunch. This shot is like buttah, made of Jameson Irish Whiskey and butterscotch, chased with a shot of OJ. Yeah, that goes down waaaaaaaay too easy.

We love discovering new neighborhoods, especially the new restaurants within those new places.  We do have a food blog after all!  One day, a few weeks ago, we went off exploring throughout Greenwich.  Specificallly, we hit up all the parks and beaches to see where our new shiny park passes could get us.  On our way into Tods Point, we discovered Old Greenwich for the first time…home of Garden Catering and ReNapoli to name a few!

Burrata at ReNapoli in Greenwich, CTSo, we took note of ReNapoli, did a little research and decided to give it a shot when we were in the mood for some pizza.  We learned it was BYOB (with no corking fee, FTW) so we grabbed a nice bottle of red and headed straight over.  Now, as we said, we did a little research beforehand and found out just weeks before, pizza maker Bruno DiFabio had teamed up with Bob LeRose of Bobby Q’s to create a pulled pork pizza.  This pizza of legend took top honors and won first place at the Greenwich Town Party.  And, DiFabio himself is quite the legend, tossing his pie into the ring and winning 3 world pizza championships.
