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.)
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.
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...
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.
