Dining in Stamford
Experience one of the most established restaurants in Stamford by dining at the Colony Grill. This local joint was founded back in 1935, and since then, it has become famous for its thin-crust pizza. Now, their thin-crust pizza is the only item on the menu, besides cold, tasty beverages. But not to fear: there are toppings provided for every taste and occasion and you're encouraged to make your own creation. There is even a breakfast pizza in the mornings and a salad pizza if you're craving some green. There are also gluten-free crusts available.
For some New England cuisine and local seafood, try Fish. Dine outside on their full bar and patio or have an elegant meal inside. On Sundays, you can catch their brunch with bottomless mimosas, bellinis, and poinsettias and half-priced bottles of wine. And their happy hour has been voted one of the best in the state! It happens 7 days a week, so you can't miss out on these great prices for seafood, appetizers, and drinks.
