There are some big names in the Fairfield County dining scene and Chef Matt Storch is definitely one of them. His restaurant, Match, in SoNo remains a steady force in the Norwalk dining scene. Sure, restaurants close around him, unable to withstand the shaky Norwalk market, but Match has consistently stayed strong because people know they can always get an extremely well-executed, dependable, delicious meal . . .  yet there’s always something new thanks to Chef Storch’s creative spins. 

So it only makes sense that he’d bring that same killer combo of dependability and innovation to The Chelsea in Fairfield, alongside his partner Scott Beck and his Chef de Cuisine, Eric Felitto. Sure, the Chelsea has been open and successful since 2012, but Chef Storch knows there are always new people coming into Fairfield, so he invited us bloggers in for a wonderful dinner so that we could let our readers know about all the awesomeness they have to offer.

14 years?  Damn.  That’s a long time in the restaurant biz, but with Chef Matt Storch as Executive Chef since 2001 (and now a partner, too,) it’s clear why Match continues to be a major success in SoNo.  Chef Storch’s food is imaginative, playful, bold, beautiful, and always in a process of evolution.  What’s great about the food at Match and what Chef Storch cooks in general (check him out at The Chelsea too) is that he’s not afraid to take chances and bring in influences from other cuisines.

This love of taking chances, being creative, and creating bold flavor profiles can be seen clearly in Match’s 14th Birthday 6 Course Meals.  From October 8-11, you’ll be able to pick the Fish & Veggies or the Meat Lovers meal for just $35 per person.  Here are both menus:
