        next to the wings place? That whole side of the street seems to have fallen off a cliff in the last three months.

          Yes, but I remember when living in NYC a great kind of fancy Mexican place by the same name an it was very good maybe they are the same but who knows. I went by and there seems to be a few new places but I was drivin g so I couldn't see the names so if anyone knows let me kno how they are. Have you ever been to SBC? Thanks

            There's a Mary Ann's in Port Chester... a Mexican please. Is this the same? If so, I hold out no hope whatsoever...

              Oh well, I was waiting for your comments because I had a feeling you would know. what is your favorite dine in place in Stamford for Latin cuisine not the truck because I love that but I do like to eat not in a rush. Thanks

                There was an article in the Stamford Advocate a few months back about all the restos coming to the area. Looks like this Mary Ann's is affiliated with the Mary Ann's of NYC.

                nbermas - don't waste your time or money at SBC, it's terrible.

                  The site you posted suggests that one of the locations is the Port Chester location, see adamclyde above. and jfood agrees with SBC, why go?

                    yeah. I actually used to like SBC for what it was... a casual place with average food that wasn't a chain. But last few times I've been it's been inedible.

                    To nbermas, regarding your question about what sit-down latin restaurants in Stamford... Brasitas is pretty good. Attractive interior, pan-Latin restaurant. It's pricier than other latin places in town, but it's pretty good.

                      Adam: Thanks! Happy eating, did you ever try that little place past the truck in the right side on Main Street heading towards Greenwich? I will try it soon.

                    It looks expensive though! But I think I remember getting years ago guacamole made tableside and I loved it, does anyone do that anymore or anything made in front of you rather than in the back with who know s what? I like very clean kitchens or else...... Thanks

                      yes, as I said, it's more pricey. but it's pretty good and appeals to a broader audience. Decor and presentation are higher. Food quality i still good.

                      No idea about guacamole. I'm not a fan of tableside guac, frankly, but that's just because I can make better at home for 1/10 the cost. :)

                        I know i make it all the time but once a year it is fun to go somewhere where they makes things fresh right in front of your face. Happy day!
