I must admit, I pretty much never walk down lower Summer St. when I’m heading downtown, so I haven’t taken much note of changes down there. However, Stamford talk has a recent post about the opening of the new chain wings joint a chain Mexican restaurant and an update on Barcelona.
I’m somewhat skeptical of the first two, however, I am looking forward to Barcelona, which will open where Zinc had been and has – for Stamford – prime outdoor seating. From the sounds of things, the tapas restaurant will open at the beginning of summer and be a welcome addition to the dining options in downtown Stamford.
Also, take note of Streets of Stamford’s short post about Chavin, the Peruvian restaurant taking over Zody’s spot on Atlantic. Chavin opened yesterday and I grabbed a menu, but decided to rush out because I couldn’t take the pan flutes blaring over the stereo system. All the usual suspects are present on the menu and I plan on trying it out soon.
