I guess it makes me an old geezer but Manero's and the Clam Box were the two places to eat when I was a kid, North Castle was the place to drink if you were not 21 yet. I also remember HJ's and the White Castle in Cos Cob's 10 cent hamburgers. I guess those days are gone forever. Progress??

The Clam Box's "Belly Burster" was the best

Does anyone think this whole "report a celebrity sighting" column to be a bit creepy/stalkerish? Do we HAVE to have a column devoted to this kind of childish activity?

What would we do without THE DISH? The report about the no-name actor having a hotdog at a little league game was riveting. This area is CRAWLING with celebrities. OMG!

I've heard so many denials of the White Castle in Cos Cob that I can't count them.
It's a relief to have someone else remember it.

Manero's declined before its demise, too bad on both counts.
And the Clam Box - a roadside institution, sorely missed.
Throw in the bar at the Pickwick Arms as another of the lost great watering holes.

Don't forget that we also lost another great watering hole in the Horseneck recently.

I remember all of those and agree. The Pickwick Arms was one of a kind, too original and with too much personality to survive in Greenwich.

Wasn't there a Burger King where Balducci's is now??? It didn't last very long. But Steak and Brew was there for awhile. And what about Charlie Brown's in central Greenwich?? AND who could forget Wetson's at BANG'S location.

So very true. A place where you could leave the world at the door...

Wetson's - now there was a place that served fresh hand cut potatoes as its french fries...

Charlie Brown's seems like a disant memory - and much too low-brow for the Greenwich of today...

I'm pretty sure that Charlie Brown's (across from Horseneck Liquor) was also named Jonathan's Other Brother at one time....early 80's maybe!

when I was a kid, I believe there was a Nielsons restaurant where Balduccis is. I used to get the rock candy from there once a week.

my father remembers the White Castle. He is an octogenarian and has lived in Cos Cob his whole life. He thinks it closed sometime in the early to mid 1950s

I spent little time in Greenwich after 1955.
Tiny white bldg.
Wafer thin meat patty with holes in it, onions.
Other side of the Post Road from Cos Cob Grade school.
Might have become the Lil Spot or been a rogue White Tower but it's gone now!!! We did spend lots of time at the Dairy Queen down the road too.
