I think all are pareve, but not sure... her sides are ginger orange couscous, moroccan quinoa, veggie tabouleh, rosemary potatoes, lemon rice pilaf and ratatouille. Fairway also has bbq rotisserie chickens.

The JCC restaurant closed, but the JCC is currently looking at options for a new vendor in that space. The very talented former owner opened a commercial kitchen in downtown Stamford and now supplies Fairway with vaad-certified prepared foods items.

Other va'ad certified options include Navaratna, a vegetarian Indian joint in downtown Stamford; Fairway, located in the South End, has a great selection of kosher meats, cheeses, bakery, etc.; Beldotti Bakery in Newfield is great and there are other kosher bakery options at Stop & Shop and Shop Rite Commerce Park; and the community is anticipating the opening of a fleishig restaurant/take-out/sports bar this fall down the street from Yeshiva Bais Binyomin. Good things happening on the kosher scene in Stamford!

Trader Joe's Glatt Beef

TJ's in Darien also is carrying Teva (85/15 ground beef, thick-cut Angus ribeyes, roasts, and some cubed chuck) alongside their solid assortment of Empire organic and non-organic poultry products. I live in Stamford, but TJ's prices are better than Stop & Shop, where the beef is Meal Mart (I'll hold off comment on the quality or lack thereof). I spoke to the meat manager at TJ this evening and he told me he is dumping $1,000+ worth of kosher meat every week due to slow sales. Not many Jews in Darien, the most blue-blood town in CT, but I suggested he get the word out through Agudath Sholom and YI newsletters. Would be a shame to lose the TJ option... at least until Fairway opens in Stamford this summer!

Where to find cannolis?

If you drive another 20 minutes north of White Plains Bake Shop, you'll hit Beldotti's Bakery in Stamford, under the supervision of the Va'ad of Fairfield County. Best cannoli I have ever eaten.

Does really good hot chocolate exist in Stamford?

My wife is a hot chocolate fiend, and sadly, since we moved to Stamford from the UWS last March, we haven't been able to find restaurant hot chocolate that measures up to the likes of Nonna on Columbus. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
