You all know about Colony Grill in Stamford for pizza, right?
You already knew about this place. The best pie within a 42.34 mile radius of Stamford, CT. (MapQuest says it's that far to New Haven).
This is a townie bar with an expanded dining section in the light industrial part of town south of 95. It's the place that local company softball teams visit after games. It's a place that still serves Schaeffer on tap. It's a place where families take their kids for pizza amidst locals drinking beers watching the games on TV. The place is not raunchy or smoky - really, it's fine to take kids. From 5:00 - 7:00 it's about 40% kids.
Colony cranks out one type of food in one size - a frisbee-sized pizza with choices of standard toppings. It's a thin bar pie cooked perfectly. They're so busy from dine-in and take-out that you'll wait at least 30-45 minutes for your pie, but you'll quickly see why people are willing to wait that long. Parking is tough going around there.
Go get some.
