  On a beautiful evening last week, we decided last minute to have dinner at Terra. Since it is August and half of Greenwich seems to be away, we were able to get a table outside. The breeze was delightful and terrace quiet compared to the restaurant itself. After a round of great drinks we had a hard time choosing between Terra’s usual wonderful dinner entrees. Everything looks and sounds so good, but we can only eat...

  Dougie’s looks fresh and bright, thanks to some new coats of interior paint. The red and white motif is clean and cheery. What a nice change. Dougie’s is also featuring a lunch special every day. Today’s is tuna and avocado, with lettuce & tomato on a toasted English muffin for only $5.50! What hasn’t changed at Dougie’s is the good food and the reasonable prices. The sausage, egg and cheddar breakfast sandwich, the hot dogs (2 for...

  A little spot on the Greenwich/Port Chester border, Dougie’s continues to feed the world. In the morning, we love their sausage, egg and cheese (ask for cheddar) on a roll, accompanied by their delicious fresh-brewed Colombian coffee. For lunch, it’s hard to choose between their fresh (never frozen) cheeseburgers, or their great 100% beef Nathan’s hot dogs (add sauerkraut, homemade hot (!!!) chili, onions, cheese and whatever else you can think of). Wednesday is Dog Day...

  Their world-famous margaritas, made with pure, fresh juice and the finest tequila are the best. Homemade quacamole and chips served with cilantro-infused salsa complement the cocktail experience. And the nachos, topped with cheese, olives, scallions, tomatoes, jalapenos with the option to add chicken or beef, are the best we have ever had. For dinner, enjoy the shrimp fajitas, fish tacos, or chicken and pork burritos. Everything organic, farm to table, delicious and authentic Southwestern cuisine. Don’t leave...

It’s not just a pizza place, although Frank and Mike Greco will make you any kind of pizza you can dream up. It’s more than a deli, although they have the freshest, best cold cuts and imported cheeses. Their special sandwiches are delicious, as are the paninis and wraps. You can choose from a host of wonderful salads or make a meal of their homemade soups. Party with Moms recommends Frank’s Italian combo sandwich on...

  Do you know where Mt. Kisco Smokehouse is? Yes, you’re right, it is in Mt. Kisco, where its incredible smoked salmon has made it a popular tri-state destination. A family-run business since 2000, Mt. Kisco Smokehouse smokes and hand slices the highest quality salmon and other fish, including sturgeon, sable, trout, whitefish and shrimp. But luckily for Greenwich, the next generation of the family has opened a retail store in Greenwich. While the seafood is still...

  What more could we ask for? Wonderful company and excellent food. What we shared: Prince Edward Island mussels with smoked chorizo, lemon confit and cilantro, served with grilled, buttery Italian bread, a hint of garlic. The best mussels of any restaurant in town, bar none. Yellow fin tuna crudo with mashed avocado, shaved radish, ginger/soy sugo/ and a rice cracker – a delicious medley of tastes. The special risotto – creamy, with grilled octopus, golden beets and cauliflower....

Even on a rainy and chilly day, Tengda had a great crowd for lunch. Why? Lots of delicious food at reasonable prices. The Japanese Bento Boxes are very popular, and the Ribeye Teriyaki option was excellent, with tender and flavorful steak and fresh and perfectly al dente vegetables. All of the boxes include an Asian salad, rice, California rolls and potstickers ($10 - $14). A new favorite is Chicken, Vegetable and Tofu in Coconut Curry Sauce...

  It was nice to see a good crowd on a Wednesday night at Firenze. And although almost all the tables were taken, it was still possible to converse, thanks to the new acoustical tiles they have installed. The men started off with the Tagliere to share: an abundant board of Italian hams, salamis, delicious cheeses, olives, grapes, walnuts and honey. This is a wonderful taste experience, but it does leave you pretty full. Determined to have...

Eastend had its soft opening last week. We went there with a few Moms of the Week naturally, Kyle Healy and Bryanne Crabb to bid Bryanne good luck in her move back to Australia. The place was filled to capacity. Suzanne and Ramze Zakka, owners of Z Hospitality Group, were there to welcome friends and family to their new, American-themed restaurant at 409 Greenwich Avenue. The bar is beautiful. Separating it from the dining room, a...

The appetizer menu simply said “Thai Crab Cake,” leading us to expect a few bites. Instead we got two large delicious crab cakes drizzled with a chili crème sauce next to a substantial mesclun salad with papaya and daikon strips as garnish. This dish definitely made for a great lunch. Other appetizer favorites that can make a meal at Tengda: Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps (diced chicken in mild Thai bean paste sauce wrapped in leaves of...

If you haven’t tried Firenze yet, you should. The service is efficient and friendly, the atmosphere is both warm and sophisticated, and the food is delicious.

It contains parmigiano, pecorino, gorgonzola and asiago cheeses, with generous portions of Prosciutto de Parma, salami, both spicy and dolce, bruschetta, walnuts, grapes, olives and honey. A feast in itself,...
