Lulu, My Love

I’ve mentioned before on CTbites how difficult it is for me to find a solid Asian takeout spot in Norwalk. As you can imagine, that statement resulted in some comments, texts, singing telegrams, and even a carrier pigeon showed up with suggestions. “But have you tried…” Yes. Yes, I have. If it’s in Norwalk, I…

Happily Evarito’s After

Heartbreak comes in many forms. I’ve certainly experienced it when it comes to relationships, and I’ve felt it when a favorite haunt shutters. My heart was broken when Cask Republic South Norwalk closed. It was my spot back when it was The Ginger Man and that continued with it’s chic beer bar makeover. When the…

Knot Yo’ Average Sammiches

It doesn’t take a sleuth’s eye to notice that we don’t post reviews as much as we used to. There are a couple of reasons for that. One is that we don’t think EVERY restaurant needs to be reviewed. Additionally, we agreed that as a blog, we want to ONLY highlight eateries that we very…

Bee a “Keeper” for a Day

Suit up! Red Bee’s Honey Harvest provides hands-on apiary experience.   The weather is getting warmer! Well, one can hope, this is Connecticut. Anyway, that means our friends at Red Bee Honey will eventually post dates for their fun, and very hands-on, honey harvest. Last year, I was invited to Red Bee, along with a…

Talkin’ That HooDoo ‘Que

I’m pretty sure it’s the best BBQ in Connecticut and beyond. Very rarely do I write a review twice. In the case of HooDoo Brown BBQ, I have to. I stopped by the hottest BBQ joint in the area recently to write a review for Westchester Magazine’s “Eat. Drink. Post.” blog and while I’m happy…
