Two Roads Bragpost

How do you begin to tell people about something that they really can’t experience at one of Connecticut’s best breweries?

WUJI: “Upscale” Chinese Hits Fairfield & Westchester Counties

“Upscale” meaning WAYYY better than your neighbor dive Chinese joint. When I heard about the concept for WUJI I was excited. I can best describe it as higher end Chinese food than what you’d get at your corner Asian spot. You’ll see some familiar food, but it’s better, it’s organic, they use top quality ingredients,…

Busy as a Blogger at Red Bee Honey

  This was a sweet invite 🙂    Several weeks ago I replied to a thread posted in the Connecticut Bloggers Facebook group about a limited invite to Red Bee Honey in Weston, Connecticut. I’m certain I was one of the first to respond with a “like” and a comment, and when I was chosen…

A Taste of Tapas at Tablao

They’re new. Tried a few things. Consider this a quickie 😉 Tablao Wine Bar & Restaurant is brand spankin’ new in SoNo and located in a space where many before it have fallen flat. Hopefully something can finally stick in that spot and I have high hopes for this newcomer. I recently went to check…

Arthur Avenue Markets: A Pictorial Review

The tour was…

Brunchin’ at Bareburger

I went to the Ridgefield location shortly after they opened to check the hype, but never reviewed it because I only had a burger,…

The bartaco Do-Over

  Sometimes third or fourth impressions are better than the others.  A few years back I was pretty critical of bartaco and if I’m judging myself I was harsh. The short recap of that rant piece was based on people (some that I personally know) who raved about party/beachy vibe taco joint as if it…

Oh, Umami!

How does this burger chain stack up? We normally don’t DO chains but Umami Burger is a bit different. You see, they’re not everywhere, sure, they’re in major cities like Chicago, Vegas, New York, and they have even more locations in No Cal and So Cal (where the original location is in L.A.). On this…
