Thanks

Any update on Dinosaur BBQ in Stamford?

Not impressed. Got take out last Friday after being put on hold twice for 10 minutes by a rude person. Ordered the Cuban with two sides. Maybe a bad choice since it was their pulled pork with ham and mustard. Not good. Mac and cheese side and greens were also not good. I will give another try but so far rate it -100% behind Wilsons BBQ in Fairfield.

Pizza

My favorite is Pellicci's in Stamford and I've had them deliver to Greenwich for like an additional 15% - 20%. The White Clam with Bacon is fantastic along with the traditional regular pies and toppings.

best corned beef to buy?

Hummel Bros made in New Haven CT. They are available at Stop and Shop and Stew Leonard's. The flat cut is better than the point cut. We cook it in the slow cooker. We throw in a little brown sugar to cut the salt. In my opinion you can't cook corned beef too long. We also use real bunch carrots. Those little nub things are horrible.

Finding Steak Tartare in CT

55 Wine Bar & Restaurant - 55 Miller St Fairfield, CT
They serve a great Steak Tartare with parmesan crostini, truffle vinaigrette, quail egg. It is an appetizer but I order a double as an entree.

Pho Garden is at 1620 Post Road East, Westport, CT 06880. I went last year because I had never tried Pho and had read about it. The server suggested the special which had Tripe among other meats. It wasn't my thing. 3.5 on Yelp with 7 reviews.

CT To Hershey PA - Any Reccomendations

Thanks for the Dietrichs Meats tip. The place is great. Walked out of there with a couple of hundred dollars worth of great food. My favorite so far is the buffalo bologna. My wife's already fantastic meatballs were even better with their ground sirloin and pork. We also vacuum packed the majority of our purchases and will be enjoying them for months.

Thank you.

Two Boots - Bridgeport

Any opinions on Two Boots? A favorite radio show of mine often mentions them. It appears from their menu that it is a Cajun inspired restaurant with specialty pizza.

Italian Restaurant Fairfield County

Pellicci's Ristorante in Stamford has my absolute favorite seafood pasta dish.
Anthony's Seafood Delight
FEAST FOR TWO - A Combination of Clams, Mussels, Shrimp, Calamari, Scungilli, Scallops and a Whole Lobster. Your Choice of Red, White or Fra Diavolo Sauce over Pasta. A Feast for Two. $69.95. It's a little pricey but you can get a few meals out of it. It's a huge family sized bowl of food. I usually get white with Fra Diavolo on the side.

Steakhouse Bacon - Stamford Area

Thanks for the tip. I got it today and will be grilling it tomorrow. It's even thicker precut than I would have asked for. Very excited. Of course I walked out of Fairway with an extra $50 worth of deliciousness. It was my first time there. I was impressed. It is like a combination Stew Leanord's and the old Hay Day Market without the Hay Day prices.
