Explore Stamford Restaurants with Eating Stamford: Uptown Restaurant Week

10 Apr

Rizzuto’s is new to the dining scene, so why not try them out during Eating Stamford: Uptown?

Stamford Restaurant Weeks are great and are a major highlight of the year for eaters.   But, believe it or not, there are tons of great restaurants outside of Downtown Stamford that you might not have tried.  Some of these restaurants are actually on the top of our lists for different reasons.  Leave it to The New England Culinary Group to come up with a nice alternative,  Eating Stamford:  Uptown.

The good times will go down from 5/14-5/18/2012 and will not only feature prix fixe meals, but will also feature special food offers.  Another nice deal is getting a 15% off gift certificate that you can use at ANY participating Eating Stamford:  Uptown restaurant from 5/20-6/13, Sunday-Wednesday.  So, if you tapped into the 52 different drafts at Coalhouse on 5/15, you could check out Madonia a week or two later and save 15% percent.  Pretty sweet deal.

Here’s a list of the participating restaurants, special deals, and why we love them.

Let's help to eat the hell out of Fairfield!

Eating Greenwich and Port Chester went down a few weeks back and now it’s Fairfield’s turn.  Yup, enter Eating Fairfield into the fray from November 27-December 2, 2011.  Weighing in at AWESOME, we’ve got a sick one week experience going on.  We miss Fairfield, having lived in Black Rock.  So many great restaurants to try, and now there are even more to try!

This is how it works.  Each restaurant involved (list below) will give you a discounted price on a prix fixe meal and/or special offers that will make your stomach growl and your heart go pitter patter.  Click on the link to the organizers for the most up-to-date details:  The New England Culinary Group.

Here are the costs of the three course prix fixe menus: 

Lunch $10.11/Dinner $20.11      or      Lunch $18.11/Dinner $30.11

Sweeten the pot?  Hell yeah, baby.  You can earn a 20% Bounce Back Incentive by just dining at any participating restaurant during Eating Fairfield.  You’ll be able to use that BBI at any participating Eating Fairfield restaurant from 1/2-1/31 in 2012.  Just a note:  valid Sunday-Wednesday only.

Avellino’s:  we ate here the week of its opening.  Good Italian food.

55 Degrees Wine Bar & Restaurant:  been dying to eat here.  Same owners of Cava in New Canaan and Scena Wine Bar in Darien.

Bodega Taco Bar:  taco heaven with crazy amounts of tequila.  Try the grilled corn.

Bonda:  never been here, but the menu looks promising.  New Italian with worldly influences?

The Brasserie:  French, seafood, and Mediterranean all rolled up into one!

Fairfield Cheese Company:  do we need to explain this one?

Martel:  a chill bistro and bar.

Old Post Tavern:  steakhouse and pub run by Chef Patrick Tennaro

Ponte Vecchio:  we’ve eaten here a few times, also.  Eating here felt like a real Italian experience.

The Shack:  get your classic American kinda food here.  Haven’t been yet.

Vinny’s Ale House:  we live walking distance from Vinny’s in Stamford and are addicted to their delish chipotle wings!

EOS, in the Top 100 Greek spot list, celebrates 3rd birthday in style! EOS Greek Cuisine – Stamford, CT

29 Jun

Have your baklava and eat it too!

EOS Greek Cuisine in downtown Stamford is celebrating three years of kick ass Greek food that just, plainly and simply, freaking rocks.  How hardcore is EOS?  Well, they’ve been included in the Top 100 Greek Restaurants in the U.S. by The National Herald.  Notice they are the only Connecticut Greek spot on this list?  So, if you’ve never had a chance to go there, or if you’re a seasoned (hahahaha) vet, we’ve got a great time for you to visit.

Tuesday, 7/19/11

From 5-10 p.m.

$45 per person

You know the deal:  pick an option from each course, and commence Omnoming.  Here’s a breakdown of what we’d pick:

Course 1:  Batzaria.  We know Kristien is chemically dependent on goat cheese and with the beets and the sauce…damn right she’s getting that.

Course 2: Avgolemono.  When restaurants say, “Our famous blah blah,” we don’t usually listen.  But, if EOS says that, we listen.  We’re excited to try this course because their use of lemon is superb here.  If you’ve tried their lemon potatoes, you know this is true.  We loved those potatoes so much that we tried to duplicate them at home.  Yes, they turned out well, but they were missing that real kick that only EOS has.  

Course 3: Arni Kebab.  If you've been to a few Greek spots, you know they probably have lamb on the menu.  We actually think it's part of the Greek law:  thou must serve lamb.  So, if God has ordained it, who are we to argue?  Look at this kebab:  char-grilled lamb with peppers, onions, and tomates served with-wait for it-lemon zest mashed potatoes.  Holy Moses!  Please refer to how great their use of lemon is with Course 2, then come back here, then read again, then come back here.

Course 4: Baklava Sundae.  You are officially Greek if you enjoy kickin' back and noshing on some baklava.  But, really, what better way to enjoy it then by using it to create an ice cream sundae with?  The baklava isn't too chewy or too stick-to-your-teeth-for-the-next-ten-daysish.  Great dessert for baklava lovers or for a person who is experimenting and is a virgin to Greek desserts. ;)
