  1. I seem to remember that there is a kosher dairy restaurant in a JCC there. Last year we checked the menu out online, for an overnight trip that we planned in the area. The menu looked really interesting.
    Unfortunately the trip never materialized. Does anyone know if this place still exists, and any more details?

      The JCC restaurant closed, but the JCC is currently looking at options for a new vendor in that space. The very talented former owner opened a commercial kitchen in downtown Stamford and now supplies Fairway with vaad-certified prepared foods items.

      Other va'ad certified options include Navaratna, a vegetarian Indian joint in downtown Stamford; Fairway, located in the South End, has a great selection of kosher meats, cheeses, bakery, etc.; Beldotti Bakery in Newfield is great and there are other kosher bakery options at Stop & Shop and Shop Rite Commerce Park; and the community is anticipating the opening of a fleishig restaurant/take-out/sports bar this fall down the street from Yeshiva Bais Binyomin. Good things happening on the kosher scene in Stamford!

        Thanks for the update. After I posted my question, I checked and saw that, sadly, the JCC restaurant had closed. It's nice to see that there are some other options.
        Are the prepared foods at Fairway - supplied by the former JCC restaurant owner - dairy, meat, or both?

          I think all are pareve, but not sure... her sides are ginger orange couscous, moroccan quinoa, veggie tabouleh, rosemary potatoes, lemon rice pilaf and ratatouille. Fairway also has bbq rotisserie chickens.
