Helados Vazquez in Bridgeport, CT for Gelato!!!!!

javaandjazz Jan 31, 2009 04:31 AM

We stopped here late last night for dessert. It was our first time here and boy oh boy did we get a real treat!!! I had some of the best gelato that I have ever had before! It was so creamy and so full of flavor. They had about a dozen flavors available. They also cook about 4-5 different mexican foods every day if you choose to dine there. They place is also beautiful. They did a nice job remodeling. This place is a must stop destination. Their address is:
2871 Fairfield Ave in the Black Rock section right down from Ash Creek Saloon, Bridgeport, CT. I'll be checking this place out for dinner very soon.

    Thanks for the recommendation along with TracyGeo. I stopped in last week. Helados Vazquez really does have some of the best gelato I have had. They did a great job with renovating the place and keep in extremely clean. The homemade and authentic Mexican dishes were a real treat. The freshly prepared tortillas and high quality food was a nice surprise and a welcome addition to my list of Mexican dining options. I had the beef soup and chicken enchiladas. The enchiladas were far superior to the typical heavy, overly sauced, and super cheesy ones. Price point is superb, $8 for entrees & BYOB. I look forward to going back again soon.

      I just heard some bad news. I just got word today that they are closing. I hear that today/tonight is there last night. It's a shame because they were a good place and to me it seemed like they were busy.

            This is sad news indeed. Beautiful room, great prices (cheap!), delicious gelato...

              I drove by there a couple of weeks ago right around dinner time. The place was totally dark.

              Confirmed- I am friends with the owners. Very sad, was my go-to for the nights when I don't want to cook and within walking distance.

              We had them cater our wedding! :(
