After our last visit to Washington Prime in South Norwalk, CT for dinner, we’ve been back quite a bit. This is the finest of compliments because, hey, there’s just so many good places around to choose from! Last Sunday, we got together with our fellow bloggers and enjoyed a delicious brunch at Washington Prime. They have a new buffet style brunch which honestly is a great format for brunch. Some people (like me) like a breakfasty brunch and some people prefer more lunch brunch. So this way, everyone is happy and can taste a bit of everything. And with the
Before Washington Prime even opened in South Norwalk, CT, Jeff and I had been eyeing the beautiful space and watching it morph into the fantastic “New American” restaurant it turned out to be. Located at the corner of Water Street and Washington Street, this restaurants brings something new and exciting to South Norwalk. Big flavors, a fun take on classic dishes, unique cocktails, and the vibe ties it all together. There’s very few things we DIDN’T try on the menu and there’s really something for everyone. Don’t eat fish? Try their delicious steaks! Don’t eat meat? Try the grouper or the scallops!
To celebrate our 3 month wedding countdown this past Saturday night, we decided to visit one of our top favorite restaurants in southern CT – and that’s Match in South Norwalk. As many of you have heard, Match recently got a little “face lift”. Although the restaurant hasn’t changed in a big way, the little changes really gave the place a new, exciting feel. Since we go to Match often and there are a lot of staple items we love, we were happy to see a mix of some fantastic new dishes along with our classic favorites. To start off
On Wednesday, 11/20, grab some friends and join the South Norwalk Dishcrawl! What’s a “Discrawl” you ask? A Dishcrawl is like a Pubcrawl, but with food! For one filling evening, you’ll get to meet fellow foodies, sample specialty dishes at four restaurants, and meet the chefs and owners that work behind the scenes. Dishcrawl was started in 2010 in San Francisco and its a national company. Dishcrawls are held in NYC, LA, Chicago all major markets across the U.S. Dishcrawls are hosted about once a month in Fairfield County. Before expanding to SoNo Dishcrawled toured through Greenwich, Old Greenwich, Stamford,
It seems like every time we drive by this particular spot in South Norwalk by the Maritime Aquarium, it’s a different restaurant. Which is too bad because it’s in a great location and a beautiful building. We’ve been living in SoNo for almost 3 years now and we’ve never visited any of the previous restaurants that were there. But when we saw the new Mama’s Boy signs being put up, the name itself intrigued us. Then when we realized it was southern style food, we were definitely excited to check it out. As people who cook, we get excited to go
There are few cuisines that are under-represented in Fairfield County. One of these is Cajun food made famous in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. A blend of French, Caribbean and other European and African elements, Cajun cuisine is as warm and comforting as the area where it hails from. As you can imagine, we were thrilled to hear that a New Orleans inspired restaurant opened recently in South Norwalk. Cristina and I had a unique opportunity to get a chance to try quite of the few items that the chef, Dan Kardos has created that blend classic Cajun dishes
