Paired Founders Brewing Dinner @ Mill Street Bar + Table (Yes, There’ll Be KBS)

3 Jun

One of our favorite new restaurants in Fairfield County comes from the creative mind of Chef Geoff Lazlo: Mill Street Bar & Table. It’s located just a short hop skip and a jump away from where we’re living and is nestled close by the Greenwich/PoCho border. And, it’s no stranger to anyone who’s been reading our blog, as we’ve given it an exclusive preview before opening, a full-out pigged-out review, and named it Best Burger and Best New American in the 2015 OmNomy Awards.

When you wanna be good, go to b.good Greenwich

3 Mar

Sometimes you just need to hit that restart button on your diet. . . especially, oh say, after a deeply gluttonous vacation in Lake Placid and Vermont jam packed with beer, bourbon, bbq, burgers, Bloody Marys and bacon. Luckily, there’s b.good a couple of miles from us, which makes it easy for us to be good after our trip . . . especially when they have delivery. BOOM! Continue reading

5 Nov

The Granola Bar, known for their healthy spins on classic dishes, fresh juices, and coffee and other wake-ya-up drinks, has made a name for itself in Westport. We’ve been by their spot many times and dig the cool, relaxed vibe . . . and now we won’t have to go so far anymore because they are moving to where we live now: Greenwich. Continue reading

You’ll Definitely Wanna Come Back to Back 40 Kitchen – Greenwich (Review)

4 Aug

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Back 40 Farm, Dancing Dog Farm, Gaia’s Breath, Hemlock Hill, Red Barn Bakery, Blooming Hill Farm, Marcia Tucker, Western CT Craftsmen, Jaw Workshop, Farming 101, Shearwater Coffee Roasters, Red Bee Honey, Sea to Table, Blue Moon Acres, Ridberg+, Chaljeri Farm, Beltane Farm, Cato Corner Farm, Social Comments, Deidre Mannix, and Mountain Rose Herbs.

This is the impressive list of suppliers that are proudly displayed at Back 40 Kitchen, a new rustic, quaint farm-to-table spot in Greenwich. Yup, this list lets you know that when it comes to the farm part of farm-to-table, Back 40 Kitchen ain’t messin’ around. They take their ingredients very seriously, and without giving too much away, it shows . . . BIG TIME!

And, speaking of ingredients, you could say that they are very careful about not only what gets into their kitchen, but what comes out on your plate . . . or in your glass, for that matter. The majority of their food comes from local sources, whether it’s CT or NY. Then, Chef George DeMarsico transforms those ingredients into something greater, making apps and entrees from scratch without even a single whisper of gluten. The same approach can be found behind the bar, as Jennifer DeMarsico (Manager and cocktail curator) creates the drinks and ingredients inside of them from “scratch” like her cherry syrup that we mention in the next section.

Major Noms: Citarella Gourmet Market + Liquor Shop Opens in Greenwich

3 Jun

Months ago we saw a little sign come up on a building (600 W. Putnam Avenue) that’s just a few blocks from our house and was being worked on for months: Gourmet Market. Gourmet Market? We searched, we Googled, we tried every single term, but we had no idea what it could be. But, we were excited, especially because as a part of that building there would be a liquor shop! Months after that a sign went up: Citarella.

Seafood section at Citarella in GreenwichOh hell yes. Turns out that Citarella is a market based out of NYC with Upper Westside, Upper Eastside, and Greenwich Village locations as well as out east on Long Island including East Hampton, Southampton, and Bridgehampton. They developed quite the reputation for producing and selling high-quality food and offering a great variety of fresh products, so we knew that having Citarella by us would be a game changer . . . especially because the market is just a short walk away for us. We can literally walk for a few minutes, grab some choice-cut meats, some killer produce, and a few other ingredients then head home to make a legendary meal.

Paleo Dieters + Cross Fitters Rejoice; Il Paleo Soon to Open in Greenwich!

1 Apr

No one can deny that eating healthy and choosing a careful diet has become more and more important as food companies increasingly look for dangerous short-cuts and time and cost savings in their food sourcing and production. Modern day pre-packaged, preservative-laden, genetically modified foods have freaked us out all so much, it’s no wonder diets like the Paleo Diet have taken off. Until now, though, Paleo dieters have either needed to rely on themselves to cook meals at home, or ask for meal modifications at restaurants, which isn’t always a great experience. Well, a new restaurant that’s about to open in the Riverside neighborhood of Greenwich is about to change all that.

Photo from Leslie ReiterThe aptly named Il Paleo will feature a completely Paleo menu, a groundbreaking move for the restaurant scene in Fairfield County. “Right now,” says co-owner Hans Pumph, “we’ll have a few high tops near the juice bar, a few banquettes, and 5 tables. We’re going for a high-end, but super relaxed feeling as many of our customers not only work hard, but also workout hard too. We want our restaurant to feel like home, without all the hassle of having to cook (and clean) yourself.”

7 Courses to Celebrate La Soirée Printanière at Bistro Versailles in Greenwich

24 Mar

As we approach our 10 year wedding anniversary and Dan approaches his 40th birthday (shhh, don’t you dare say a thing), we’re thinking that we want to go all out for our next vacation. We’ve been debating back and forth where we should go: Brazil, Chile, Morocco, Greenland, Germany, Sweden? All these spots have some great things to them, but we think we’ve narrowed down our choice to France! We’re going for the food, the art, the culture, the cheese (different kind of culture) and . . . oh yes, the wine!

Wine, Cheese, Prizes, + More Cheese @ Greenwich Cheese Company Grand Opening

28 Jan

Just a few days before Christmas, a couple months back, Dan trekked out to Greenwich Cheese Company. His mission? Find some great cheeses, breads, and meats for Christmas dinner at his parent’s house on Long Island. Parking was pretty easy with the back parking lot—that’s a nice tip for you when you visit. As he entered, Dan was so happy to see that there was a nice line of people waiting to order (and some try) cheese after cheese. Pretty awesome for only being open a few days!

Gift-mas-ukah Day 3: Prima Dolce Co. Compotes of Greenwich, CT

3 Dec

Bella's Berries Compote

So far we’ve covered Hoardable Hot Sauce in Stamford, Jones Winery in Shelton for our Fairfield County gift spotlight, and today we’re sharing with you one of our favorite add-ons: Prima Dolce compotes. What is a compote, anyway? Well, that’s a great question. Here’s a little clarification: a compote is jam-like and includes fruit that has been stewing in a sugary syrup with possibly other ingredients like liqueurs or juices.
