Moving to Stamford CT. Where to eat?

Colony Grill pizza is revolting ... yes it is thin crust, but I can't stomach calling it pizza ... more like cheese covered cardboard - no sauce, toppings or choices really ... atmosphere is tres' dive ... good for a pint/pitcher but not food

hmmm ... Kiku is very decent sushi/sashimi but agreed not high on decor ... Staff is attentive and polite - service is excellent, but you are eating in a local strip mall ... the Tengda scene in Greenwhich is too much of the "hedge fund BSDs" and the women who want to date them on the bar side, the sit down side is ok I don't love the decor the food is passable ... Edo remains my fave Korean/Sushi/Sashimi place - but it is not "romantic"

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! ... I'll post on my experiences and reviews as soon as I get around to sampling all this fare ;-) ... I've had my fill of burgers and bad burritos, so I'm eager to check these places out ;-) ... I stumbled across a decent lunch menu at Thai Bistro on WestPark ... the Thai style Chicken Basil (ground chicken) was delicious ... I grew up easting **ridiculously** hot food so I ordered it at their "Professional Only Thai Hot" level - wasn't disappointed at all

arrrgh ... I'll be living here for three days a week for the foreseeable future ... Given that I'm not setting up a home (love to cook), I would love somerecs for good eats in Houston ... I like a wide variety of ethnic foods and probably will be doing alot of take-out .. I tend to particularly like the hole-in-the-wall type joints or food cart/van

I can't live without:

- Japanese (Sushi and Tepanyaki)
- Chinese (Sezchuan sp?)
- Indian (Southern over Northern but either will do)
- Vietnamese
- Tex-Mex
- Mexican
- Honduran
- Guatemalan
- Brazilian Grill
- Turkish
- Italian
- BBQ
- Burger joint

If you love something else, I'd enjoy trying it out ... I tend to more of the Zimmern/Bourdain style of adventure eating/street food than the Michelin star type stuff but I'll try nearly anything twice ;-) ... Thanks in advance!!

Napa may be better

We like Edo in Darien much better, but Kiku will do in a pinch
