Hey, foodies! Fairfield County has plenty of amazingly fabulous eating establishments and we’re sharing some that have impressed us during our travels. From BBQ to Vietnamese, to burgers, to wine bars, and then some, here are some spots you need to put on your “gotta try it” list! Your taste buds and belly will thank you.

We recently partnered up with CT Visit as CT Ambassadors, so you can also see this story on their fabulous website!

Over the past twelve years, Joe Yorio and his team have been catering weddings and special occasions all over CT, Westchester & NY as Event Caterers. Five years ago, they had a small smoker outside their production kitchen/store and the restaurant concept of an upscale BBQ restaurant was born. Today, we’re hanging out and eating at The Cue in Danbury. Bibs on, serious food porn ahead. 

When Stew Leonard’s invites you to spend a morning in their Danbury store, getting hands-on and going behind the scenes, you squeal, then you clear your schedule. At least that’s what we did! Long-time fans of Stew’s (the world’s largest dairy store) we couldn’t wait to discover what makes their operation tick….and to make cinnamon rolls, mozzarella cheese, dance with bananas, toss pizzas, kiss a monkfish, and of course, visit with Clover the cow.

When our multi-talented, busy friend Kimberley Locke started volunteering at Ann’s Place, we were curious. Kimberley speaks so highly of the time she spends there and how meaningful it is to her. We decided to get informed and learn first hand just what Ann’s Place does for our community.

Shannon Cobb, President, and CEO was kind enough to meet us one Saturday afternoon to give us a tour of the impressive facility located at 80 Saw Mill Road, Danbury.

Here are our Cliffs Notes!

Brunch, our favorite meal of the day – besides breakfast, lunch, dinner, and high tea.

Terra Ristorante Italiano offers a Northern Italian menu and the most ridiculously fresh craft cocktails. Located within Hotel Zero Degrees (where we were visiting), the restaurant is open to guests as well as the public.

Having spent the previous evening enjoying Terra’s wonderful bar scene, we knew that we’d be in for a chic and tasty brunch. We decided that one last cocktail and a light breakfast had to be consumed, for the sake of the blog. You understand.

This week’s “Getaway” brings us to Hotel Zero Degrees in Danbury, a mere 20 minutes or so from our respective homes. Regardless of the short distance, this little staycation made us feel like we had traveled much farther. The moment we stepped through the glass sliding doors into the boutique hotel’s stunning lobby – we felt as if we had been teleported to some uber-modern Euro-lodge. Ready? Set? Getaway!
