Born and raised in Fairfield I have had the privilege of getting to see the ever changing Post Road. A night on our downtown strip is perfect for an outing with friends, taking the family out for a bite, and of course a date night. Endless places to choose from; Colony Pizza, Mecha Noodle, Molto, there is a place for everyone to enjoy. I have six places that should be on your list to check out this summer!
Wild Rice Fairfield
One of my favorite places to have a quick lunch while sitting out in the sun on the front patio. You can always count on freshest ingredients with this Asian fusion served with a modern twist. Some favorites include their large menu of sushi, pad thai, general tso’s chicken, and home-style pho. Enjoy with friends and family sharing dishes, there surely is enough to go around! Also a perfect choice for take out when you curl in with family and a movie.
Fairfield surely knows how to do Pizza. Colony Grill has the atmosphere for all to enjoy a nice afternoon lunch or dinner. You can sit at the bar with friends to enjoy a cold beer and watch the game or sit down with the family and share a few pies. Enjoy their signature flat crust pizzas that everyone will love.
Looking for a relaxed and rustic yet sophisticated atmosphere for a date night or drinks with friends, this is your next stop. Start with their list of incredible drinks, moving to their large menu, also full of small plates if you are looking to share and get a taste of everything, next try out mussels in a pot and their jambalaya are a family classic as well.
This is a Vanderblue family classic, truly our go to spot to sit down outside on a nice early summer evening and pick from their large tapas menu. We love to order several small dishes and share them with the whole table. They also have incredible pizzas, pasta and classic dishes that fill their menu. After a filling meal check out their dessert cocktail to conclude the perfect date night out.
