Greenwich suggestions (particularly delivery/takeout/lower-end)?
I'm moving to Greenwich shortly (specifically, the Riverside area). I certainly know and understand that most of what Greenwich has to offer is on the higher end in terms of price, but what about those nights when I just want to order in pizza or Chinese, or go out for Thai? Do I have to go to Port Chester? Any suggestions?
(Also welcome are recommendations for butchers, cheese shops, fish markets, produce, etc. And if there's any place I absolutely shouldn't miss, pricey or not, those pointers are much appreciated as well.)
we recently moved here as well but are on the other side of town in Glenville so welcome! Personally, I really like Express Pizza for pizza and Glenville Pizza (but it is best if you eat in). Asiana, while a bit more than your average chinese is the best. There is a great Thai place over here as well - I'll look up the name and let you know (it might be the Thai House). Chicken Joe's is great for take out fried chicken, nuggets and fries. If I can think of other stuff I'll let you know.
Welcome to Greenwich!!
Penang Grill or Asiana for Chinese
I love Pizza Factory for pizza
I think the cheese shop at Whole Foods is great. I recently tried a new cheese place called Plum in Cos Cob and was not very impressed with their selection or pricing. We go to the Lobster Bin for seafood- there is also Bon Ton on the Greenwich Ave, but LB is better IMO.
For produce I shop between WF and Food Emporium. 2 HUGE grocery stores (Shoprite and Super Shop and Stop) opened recently on the Old Greenwich/Stamford border with decent produce selections.
For liquor I love http://www.wineaccess.com/store/varmax/
in Port Chester- huge selection.
is also good in central Greenwich
I agree on le wine shop...good selection on euro wines. For more of a new world slant I like wine wise next to asiana and whole foods. Some great california wines although can be pricy.
Lobster Bin is good I agree. But not sure better than Bon Ton?
I have tried Plum for cheese too...was ok...mainly artisinal domestic selection depends what you're after I suppose. There is also a cheese shop in Darien goodwives shopping strip that I would like to check out next. On either side of it is Aux Delices deli which is great (one in Greenwich too just off the ave mid-way up) and Coromandel Indian restaurant which I think is very good and reasonable. I was surprised that the dishes there are quite authentic and have not been toned down for the masses spice-wise...
For Pizza I have always been a big fan of Pizza Post in Cos Cob (next to gopher ice cream), they dont deliver but I rather pick up their pizza than get planet or arcuris and the likes delivered to me.
For Chinese I like Asiana Cafe in Central Greenwich (next to whole foods)- though this is slightly more pricier than your average Chinese take out, but its also much better. They also have a Thai section and sushi on the menu. Some on this board are of fans of Asiana's sushi but I think its awful. The Thai food is good.
