CORTINA: 960 MAIN STREET, BRIDGEPORT
Tomatillo, we hardly knew ye.
A few short months after Moe Gad opened this new Tomatillo location, he decided to switch up the cuisine from burritos to pizza.
Moe told me this had a lot to do with the fact that, by his estimation, 90 percent of folks in Bridgeport will eat pizza, while only half will eat a burrito.
The new Cortina, an offshoot of the restaurant formerly known as Pizzeria Rosso in Norwalk, offers a broad menu of Italian dishes ordered at the counter including both New York style and Napoletana pizza.
For lunch, I tried the NY style cheese pizza. A slice during a lunch break will hit the spot, but don’t expect an exquisite dining experience.
I’ll have to head back to try the Margherita.
