Restaurants

I've just started work on this page highlighting some of my favorite restaurants in Greenwich, CT, so bear with me as it's an ongoing project. Please feel free to reach out if you have any in particular that you think I should add. I've been paying attention to the most popular searches in Greenwich, which are currently for Polpo Greenwich CT, Pizza Greenwich CT and Greenwich CT Barcelona. 

One of these days I'll write something on my favorite two pizza joints - Glenville Pizza and Pizza Post. Long story short, I grew up on Glenville Pizza and can't think of a better pie. Now I leave very close to Pizza Post and am starting to turn...

Here are some that I highly enjoy!

Located at the top of the Greenwich Avenue, Barcelona is in a fantastic location. A little too loud for my taste if you want a couples dinner, but a perfect spot for an active group. I've been going here for years with large groups/parties and highly recommend it if you want to have a fun night.
