Hmm. Aria sounds like it's using a tired formula (Buffalo mozzarella? Really?). Barcelona will be a home run, no doubt - and it will be an exciting addition to Stamford. I am interested to see what EOS will offer: higher end Greek? Diner Greek? I hope both Layla's and Garden Catering are successful in their new locations.

I do wonder how many more restaurants the city can support. Bedford Avenue is looking pretty vacant right now. WHy did La HAcienda and the seafood place close? Lack of business? Prices? Houlihans is lousy overpriced corporate food. One thing Stamford IS known for is lousy food at expensive prices. I have no problem with 20 dollar entries if I feel I am getting quality for the money. Sadly, that is not the case with most of the places in town that charge those prices. Laylas is great, reasonably priced, and healthy. I wish them well.

What are you guys talking about? Stamford has some of the best restaurants in the State. All chain restaurants blow!! Get out and try some of the smaller places and some that aren't in downtown.

You must've been drunk. Think about it...had you been drinking; or maybe you skipped lunch that day, and you know...you were really hungry. On the other hand you kind of sound like you might have a personal interest, like a chef/owner of one of these...establishments.

Listen Balloon Knot, If I had listed a restaurant name, maybe your drivel would mean something. Once again, the crazies are abound. Quiet before we send another power jolt to the south end for you!!! Listen for the barking dogs everybody!!!

There are some great small restuarants. I did mention one. There are a few others. But the rest of them are geared for yuppies too lazy to go into NYC but still willing to pay those inflated prices.

La Hacienda closed because it was terrible. As in rotten fruit in their sangria type of terrible. There are some very good restaurants but a lot of the ones that used to be good have gone downhill. I remember when Villa Italian on east main was dive. Now theyve *attempted* to go upscale, requiring reservations..but the food has gone from excellent to mediocre. We stopped going after our 3rd disappointment. Napa & Co is excellent but who can afford to eat there? Houlihans isnt that like Fridays? Um, eew?

This city can support as many restaurants as the disposable income it can hold. I would assume that with the upscale housing that is being built there will be many restaurants that will come and go. We will vote with our dollars and the good will come with the bad, but we will still have more choices than many towns in the area. Can yuppies still be used as an argument anymore? Do they even exist? I thought this was about supply and demand.

THANK YOU!

I am so sick of people using the term "yuppie". It means young urban professional which to me is really a compliment with little negative conotation. By definition, that is me, but I am not the rich, cocky, suit wearing jerk that most of you complainers like to call "yuppies". Terms like that just make you look angry, petty and quite frankly... stupid.
