Oh the weather outside is frightful, but at the Rizzuto’s Ice Bar it’s so delightful. So, go ahead and grab your bros, it’s so cold, it’s so cold, it’s so cold. 

Okay, enough of that, let’s just get down to the details for the 1st Annual Ice Bar and Winter Patio Party at Rizzuto’s Oyster Bar & Restaurant in Westport.

Seasonal + Local End of Summer Wine Dinners @ Rizzuto’s 4 Locations

4 Sep

When we were in Seattle and Portland we learned about FLOSS during one of our food tours.  Yes, we took food tours.  Did you expect anything else from us?  So, yeah, we learned about FLOSS:  fresh, local, organic, seasonal, sustainable.  Both cities subscribe to this and it’s a way of life for a great deal of the restaurants and even the food carts.  Well, Rizzuto’s is bringing some of that FLOSS into Connecticut.

Check them out for their special End of Summer Wine Dinners at all four of their locations in Stamford, Westport, Bethel, and West Hartford.  You’ll get a special cocktail and appetizer reception, followed by four courses that are paired with wines.  If you buy the tickets online, you’ll only pay $39.95 for this family style meal.  If you buy your tickets at the restaurant, you’ll pay $47.95.  Just remember that tax and–more importantly–gratuity are not included.  Remember your servers and reservations. :)
