Fairfield County’s Best

Last week, all we kept asking ourselves was “Is it Thursday yet?”  Why, you ask? Thursday was Moffly Media’s 9th Annual Best of Gold Coast Event, which took place at the Stamford Hilton. The event highlighted what residents of local residents voted as “the best” in categories such as food, fashion, fitness and more. Click here for the list of all the winners. Having attended dishcrawls in Stamford and Old Greenwich, we were excited to taste food from the best places in Fairfield County!

After spending a few minutes browsing the non-food vendors, the aromas coming from the ballroom couldn’t keep us away from the food any longer.

Our first stop was Bodega Taco Bar. The guacamole and salsa were fantastic!

Next, we couldn’t resist tasting the jumbo shrimp from Valbella.

We forgot the rules of dining and went straight from the shrimp to DiMare Pastry Shop for tasty dessert treats. The fact that we only took a few samples was an accomplishment in itself. Everything on the table was so tempting!

Half of Foodie Pleasure (Allen) LOVES sushi so we made sure to stop Matsu Sushi, which served all types of rolls. It was like sushi heaven!

After stops at the Chelsea for Tuna Carpaccio and the Ginger Man for beer and Beef Sliders, we made sure to visit Catch a Healthy Habit for some of their macaroons. They were awesome!

There were so many great places that we didn’t even mention but here is a slide show of pics you’re sure to enjoy. Check them out and tell us which one is your favorite!

Last but not least, we want to thank Amber Schiavi and the rest of the Moffly Media team for inviting us to attend such a great event. Cheers to all!
