CASA VILLA: NEW LOCATION, 886 EAST MAIN STREET, STAMFORD
But the owner, Alvino Villa, wouldn’t tell me where it was going to be.
I tried playing twenty questions and the best I could get out of him was that I couldn’t walk to it from my house, but there would be parking. This ruled out the West Side and Downtown. Frankly, opening a second Casa Villa would only make sense on East Main or in the Cove, but I still couldn’t figure it out.
It was right under my nose all along. Looking back, it seems a little ridiculous I didn’t figure it out earlier: Alvino is taking over the location of Myrna’s Mediterranean Bistro at 886 East Main Street (meanwhile, Myrna’s is setting up shop in Darien).
The most important thing about all of this is that my office will be way closer to the awesome al pastor and carnitas tacos, yet I will STILL be able to walk to the original location, at 182 West Main Street, from my house.
