Alternatives to "The Pantry" in Fairfield
We enjoy the prepared food at The Pantry, but are looking for some variety. It doesn't have to be Pantry-style (whatever that is) -- we also like all types of ethnic food. We frequently get take out from Layla's.
Anywhere in Westport / Fairfield / Black Rock would be convenient for us. Suggestions anyone?
closest place I can think of lfor prepared food ike the Pantry of would be Garelick & Herbs in Westport, on Post road. Lots of good options (though I sometimes find some of their things a bit on the salty side). Not cheap though. A&S on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield has all sorts of pre-packaged Italian food, as does Villarina's Pasta on Post Road in Westport.
If you aren't opposed to a steam table buffet type of set-up you have a few Brazilian and Jamaican options in Bridgeport close to Fairfield.
Terra Brasilis on North Ave is good. El Pantanal - 215 Frank Street is probably the best Brazilian in the city right now. Meat lovers will really like this place!
Feeding Tree - 1223 Madison Ave - close to Fairfield and has decent chow available for take out.
mommy's patties - 2523 Main St - Is a further drive from FFLD but worth it.
For Mexican try Mi Rancho on Fairfield Ave in Black Rock
