Hosted by the Downtown Stamford Restaurant Association, the Stamford Restaurant Weeks is kicked off on Monday, August 19 and runs through September 2. With 31 restaurants to choose from, all with tantalizing prix-fixe menus, there’s plenty of opportunities to try a new eatery or return to one of your favorites.
The highlight of this years’ Restaurant Weeks is the focus on farm to table dining. Just look for the tomato icon next to the menu item to know that this food is part of this initiative. The four local farms that have partnered with local chefs participating in this event include: Domus, Green Up Group, Hubbard Heights Farm and the Stamford Nature Center.
