T Rex in Stamford's south end?

Can anyone confirm if there's any truth to the rumor that a certain restaurant of Syracusian origin may be opening a location near Fairway in Stamford?

          No it's not. The article you linked is not about T-Rex at all. It is about Dinosaur which is an entirely different enterprise.

              T-Rex Cafe is an arm of the Landry's Group of restaurants and is very similar to its "Rainforest Cafe" chain. Instead of apes and elephants, the restaurants are populated with dinosaurs. And instead of a "thunder storm" every 15 minutes, they have a meteor shower. www.trexcafe.com . Definitely not the one coming to Stamford.

                Does that group have a "Syracusian" origin? Me thinks you might have not understood the OP's play on words.

              Don't know if you're kidding or not. But just in case, T. Rex is an abbreviated name for a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a type of dinosaur - and a good band from the 70's - and I specified "of Syracusian origin", although I didn't mention barbecue.

              I didn't even think there would be a restaurant in Syracuse called T Rex. Looking now, I see a T Rex BBQ in Berkeley, CA, and there's a T Rex cafe at Disney, but I didn't see any in Syracuse.

              My apologies for any confusion to anyone who thought that I meant a restaurant from Syracuse named "T Rex" was rumored to be coming to Stamford.
