We Pledge Allegiance to Good Beer + Food at Cask Republic – Stamford, CT

24 Feb

Beer overlooking the fireplace at Cask Republic Stamford

Although we went to the Friends and Family event to celebrate the opening of Cask Republic, we still felt like we were the last people in the world who hadn’t been there for a regular meal service.  Check-in after check-in, beer brag after beer brag, each friend telling us they were there made us green with envy.  So, after spending a few hours around Stamford doing errands, we decided to hit up this new spot (check out more details here) and experience the awesomeness everyone else already experienced.

It wasn’t just the sick selection of beer that we wanted to try out, either!  It was also the food from newly appointed Chef Juan Gonzalez that we were excited to try.  Like many chefs, he had started off washing dishes and prepping food, but he worked hard and graduated from culinary school at the International School of Tourism and Hotel Management in Puerto Rico.  From there he worked as a chef on a cruise ship and became Executive Chef of Pepin’s Cafe & Tasca in San Juan.  Then he came to America and worked at The Homestead 1766, Ocean Reef Club, and Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, and most recently was Chef de Cuisine at Post 154 with Executive Chef Alex Rosado.  That’s quite a resume!

Get ur prix fixe fix at Napa & Co this summer! – Stamford, CT

4 Jul

Happy Fourth of July, Omnomivores! Whether you are celebrating by having a BBQ at home, checking out a movie, watching some fireworks, or just chilling, we hope you have a great one.

So, we’ve gotta give some major props to Napa & Co in Stamford.  To begin, we were blown away by the dinner that Chef Arik Bensimon prepared for us during a blogger dinner.  We’re also impressed with all the awards that they have stacked up over the past few weeks:

Weekly Best of Fairfield County Reader’s Poll, 2012

• Best Wine List

Best of Stamford, 2012

• Best American  • Best Service  • Best Wine List  • Best Creative Menu  • Best Special Occasion
Best of The Gold Coast, 2012
• Best American  • Best Service  • Best Wine List
They’re sharing the love this summer by offering up special prix fixe menus.  In July, they will be offering a Summer Farmers Tasting Menu.  Stop by any night in July and you’ll get a 3 course meal that is paired with wine for just $45.  That kind of value, complemented by Chef Arik’s culinary chops is killah.
The awesomeness doesn’t stop, though.  In AugustNapa & Co is extending the Stamford Summer Restaurant week deal.  Yup, get a 3 course meal with wine for just $30.12 during the night.  It’s hard to pass this deal up even more.  Also, be sure to check up on our Nomworthy Events calendar for wine related tastings and events.
Happy Fourth!
