Food Scoop Around Town….

|

In the past week I noticed a few things up and coming in our area….

Tuscany Restaurant is opening on Black Rock Turnpike in the former Bon Appetit space (under Billy’s Bakery)!  The long-time Bridgeport standby is closing its doors on Madison Avenue in mid-April and moving to Fairfield!!   The food there is wonderful and I’ve been told they make the best Martinis in the area!  Now it’s even a little closer—- hurray!

Looks like a second Panera Bread is opening in Westport, right next to Home Goods…. I like Panera but certainly hope it doesn’t put Village Bagel out of business, where I think they make the best New York style bagels in Connecticut and have one of my very favorite sandwiches on earth…. so be sure to continue to support our local eateries!

Most of you already know that The Shack recently closed, and will be missed for it’s family-friendly, and fun atmosphere.  Other closings include Vino in the Fairfield Brickwalk.  Rumor has it a South American-style tapas bar might be going in that space…. but if you have the official scoop, let us know!

We’re also all eagerly awaiting the pizzaria/gelateria being opened by the owners of Molto on the Post Road—but it doesn’t look like there’s been much activity there in some time.  Hoping it all gets worked out before ice cream season!

If you have any food scoop…leave a comment below!
