Gourmet Burgers + Classic Cool: Bick’s Burgers and Fries Opening in Danbury

20 Jan

Chef Michael Bick is the man.  Not only does he own the ever popular Some Things Fishy Catering based out of Hat City, but he is a major supporter of local food and farms. This can be seen at his farm to table dinners (literally) at Holbrook Farms where he gets the majority of the ingredients for each stunning meal. Having been to two of his dinners, we can clearly say that this guy’s got some major culinary cred.

So, you could imagine how happy we were for him when he announced his brand new restaurant, Bick’s Burgers and Fries. He teased a few dishes on the Facebook page, but ever the curious OmNomivores, we asked to learn more and he oh so graciously agreed.

Starting off, Bick’s Burgers is right off of the main green in Downtown Danbury, located at 14 Ives Street. (On the way over, you’ll notice Sky Bar & Lounge, run by none other than 18 year old Ian Bick, Chef Bick’s son.) If you’re familiar with Danbury, this brand new burger joint took over Fat Wedge University.  Chef Bick, his son, and the burger crew have been working hard on repairs, cleaning, and gussying up the place…and it’s paid off.  The 26 seat Bick’s Burgers has swivel high tops at the counter, comfy booths, and a classic red, white, and black theme going on.  

Now, let’s show you a few key things that are destined to make Bick’s Burgers and Fries a go-to burger joint.

Chef Bick Plans Farm to Table Feast for Fall Harvest at Holbrook Farm – 10/14 in Bethel, CT

28 Sep

When we met up with Alicia and Renato Ghio this past May at Holbrook Farm for a farm to table dinner, we knew we were in for something amazing.  Well, for one thing it was ON a farm, the beautiful Holbrook Farm.  It doesn’t get much more farm to table than that, does it?  But, we were also amazed at how fresh, how flavorful, and how well Executive Chef Michael Bick and co. from Some Things Fishy Catering put the meal together.  We enjoyed the refreshments, the appetizers that were passed around, and all the courses that were set before us.  As always, it was great to hang with Alicia and Renato, but it was also cool to talk with the people around us…and find out that we were sitting right next to Fairfield County Foodie!

Well, Chef Bick is back for some more at Holbrook Farm in Bethel.  He’s planned a farm to table dinner on October 14, starting at 4 pm, for $65.  It’s BYOB, so you best believe we’re breaking out the Dom…or Bud Light.  Heresy!  You’ll notice after looking at the menu that the menu focuses in on what’s just been harvested and what’s in season.  Huh, is that what they mean by farm to table? :P  Take a look at this menu and you’ll be pining over the dishes and will be having dreams about them.  If you live south of Bethel, you’ll enjoy one of the most beautiful drives…especially during fall time.  Make your reservations online now, e-mail Chef Bick, or call him at (203) 722-2444.  These tickets are hot and will go faster than Honey Boo Boo Child’s 15 minutes of fame.
