Stamford Ct -Margot's Wine Cafe Opening?

Across from Lord & Taylors', has anyone heard anything about this place? It looks interesting, there used to be a great pastry/cafe/cheese spot that was fabulous. I hope it will bring some good wholesome food that isn't too expensive.

  1. There's an article about it in today's Greenwich Time. Right now, it's just breakfast and lunch (strange, for a wine bar!) and home-baked desserts. She's hoping to expand to dinner and catering.

    1. Started by the woman (Margot Olshan) who opened and runs Sono Bakery ... which is high cause for optimism, in my book.

      1. The newspaper article (also in the Stamford Advocate0 says it's opening Friday, which is hard to believe, because it looked to be in total construction disarray just a few days ago. In any case, can't wait! Especially intrigued by the idea of a place for breakfast that's serving (hopefully) other than the usual diner fare.

        1. Tried it yesterday and the place is awesome. Fun place, great food and the baked goods are out of this world. Try the cinnamon buns and chocolate chip cookies. I understand the bread is baked in house and is the best anywhere,

          1. Just took a little look in Margot's and it looks delicious and very reasonable. I hope you all go and see the beautiful pastries.
