Eos Greek Restaurant, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding-ISH”

by jem614

Stamford, CT officially has some of the best restaurants in the Northeast.  I thought NYC was unbeatable but Stamford really tries to push the envelope on elegant and delicious.

Eos Outside

A big snowstorm hit on Monday night in Connecticut and it was freezing cold.  The restaurant we had originally planned on going to “Dragonfly” was closed so we decided to try EOS as it looked warm and cozy.  The inside reminds me of a Miami restaurant with it’s puffy white benches lining the wall.  The staff is mostly Greek and very friendly.

I ordered the sesame crusted Feta (Saganaki) with honey drizzled on top as well as the hummus appetizer.  Delicious!  The hummus was the perfect blend of flavorful and simple.  I must have eaten two entire pitas trying to stuff that down.  I couldn’t stop eating the Feta, it had to be one of the best appetizers I’ve ever eaten (except for that delicious Brie that Ashley and I had in the Grove).

Once again, I had a salad for dinner but this one had so much on it, it felt like an entree.  The Kypro Salata’s grilled veggies were perfectly seasoned.  Our dinner was topped off with a HUGE piece of Baklava which we split because we were stuffed.

I definitely recommend trying this little piece of the Greek Isles, you will not regret it! (Oh! and they deliver).

Napa comes to Stamford, Ct

by jem614

Napa PrettyI recently traveled to Stamford for a business conference and was able to try out a couple of new restaurants in the area.  My colleague and I found this beautiful little restaurant, Napa, within the Marriott hotel on Broad Street.  The inside is dimly lit with candles and an entire wall is covered in wines.  The waiters sport jeans though the restaurant feels more elegant.  It brings a “relatable” aspect to the place so it doesn’t feel stuffy.

As you sit down, you are given your menus and an IPad that has their wine menu on it as well as some more information on the restaurant.

We ordered an appetizer of Spaghetti Squash (yes, it’s really an appetizer and it tastes delicious with a hint of basil) as well as a cheese plate that you can choose the type of cheeses.  For $18 you can choose three little squares of cheeses that is served with some jams and bread.  We tried (from their menu):

3. MIDNIGHT MOON, Goat, Holland, (Pinot Noir) Aged goat cheese, the flavor is nutty and
brown-buttery, with prominent caramel notes.
4. MIMOLETTE, Cow, France, (Tempranillo)Firm and oily, vivid orange, nutty with smooth fudgy finish
6. GORGONZOLA (not on their online menu)

I was not a fan of the Gorgonzola as a cheese for bread, I feel it’s better suited for salads but the Midnight Moon and Mimolette was tasty on the bread.

They do have some vegetarian pasta but their actual entrees are completely carnivore.  Thankfully, their appetizers and salads make up for what they lack in entrees.
