For a boatload of apps, tastings, desserts, and drinks you’ll only pay $45 PLUS you’ll be helping an amazing amount of local charities!

Taste of Ridgefield is back January 31 at the Lounsbury House (316 Main Street) with two sessions this year: 12:30-2:30 or 4-6. So, theoretically, you could stop by for lunch then have dinner too. Hey, we won’t judge, in fact, we’ll give you a few high fives. BOOM! Continue reading

Taste of Ridgefield Collage from 2014

Last year we travelled up to Ridgefield to get a taste of what they were cooking at their yearly Taste of Ridgefield event. One of our favorite restaurants in CT, Bailey’s Backyard, is in Ridgefield, so we figured we’d see what else the town and nearby areas had to offer. Turns out it had a whole lot to offer and we made our way through restaurant after restaurant, drink after drink. Despite the event being crowded (it’s in a bigger venue this year), it was fun, energetic, and was an absolute success.

Food and Drink Aplenty @ 15th Annual Taste of Ridgefield

13 Jan

Ridgefield is quite the dining destination for many reasons. First up, it’s home to our favorite restaurant, Bailey’s Backyard with Chef Forrest Pasternack at the helm. Ridgefield was also recently noted as the place that has the highest restaurant to person ratio in Fairfield County.  And, it was named as one of the top 25 towns in New England for culinary awesomeness by GoLocal.

That’s pretty amazing if you ask us. Even if you don’t ask us, we’ll say it’s amazing. :)  Well, you’ve got the perfect opportunity to explore the food and drinks of Ridgefield with the 15th Annual Taste of Ridgefield event, put together by the Ridgefield Rotary. The food (and drink) coma from sampling at 36 different spots begins on 1/26 and will include two tastings from 12:30-2:30 and 4-6.  Tickets are $20 for kids aged 8-12, $40 if you buy tickets in advance or will be $45 at the door of the Ridgefield Community Center. Pick up your tix by visiting the Ridgefield Rotary site or pick them up from any Ridgefield Rotary Club member, Squash’s, Dimitri’s Diner, Cellar XV, Bistro 7, Deborah Annes, and the Women’s Center. 

And, here’s what you’ll get:

While we focus mainly on Lower Fairfield County, one of our resolutions this year was to get out there, expand, and show more of the great things going on and restaurants throughout Fairfield County.  Well, let’s start things off right with telling you about Taste of Ridgefield, more awsomerest than last year or any of the 13 previous years.  What exactly is Taste of Ridgefield?  28 different awesome restaurants, bakeries, cheese shops, and caterers from the area giving out yummy bites, treats, and drinks until you explode or lose the will to eat anymore.  Tickets are $40 (benefits Ridgefield Rotary Club) if you buy in advance (or $45 at the door) and kids 12 and under cost only $20.  There will be two tasting sessions:  one from 12:30-2:30 and the other  from 4-6 pm.  What’s even better?  It’s on Sunday, 1/27, so you have no excuse not to show up and take part in this awesome culinary event.  If you buy your tickets online, all you’ll have to do is show up at the Ridgefield Community Center on 316 Main Street…no need to print out your ticket.  
Here’s the list of all the places that will be providing food:
