I love the food scene in Fairfield. I’m always excited to stop in to this pretty town and check in with some of the talented chefs and eat their delicious food.
On Sunday October the 9th TownVibe and Fairfield Magazine are celebrating Fairfield dynamic food scene by organizing what’s sure to be the food-lover’s party of the year—Taste of Fairfield—on Sunday, October 9, 2016, from 1pm to 5pm, held in the outdoor tented patio area of Southport’s Delamar Hotel. “The Delamars are at the heart of Fairfield County and home to many wonderful events. Our beautiful courtyards and open air event spaces provide perfect locations for people to come together. We are thrilled to be hosting the Inaugural Taste of Fairfield and look forward to welcoming the community to enjoy the variety of cuisine Fairfield County offers,” says Charles Mallory Founder and CEO of The Greenwich Hospitality group.
Foodies and other fun-loving folk can enjoy tastes and sips from more than two dozen restaurants and specialty markets from the Fairfield area, all in the spacious courtyard of the Delamar and Artisan Restaurant. In addition to fine cuisine, craft cocktails, artisanal wine, craft beer, and sweets, there will be live music from local favorites Otis & The Hurricanes and The Mill River Band, along with “roving” entertainment. “Good things happen when people connect over good food,” says TownVibe publisher Geoffrey Morris.
The restaurant list is still growing but to date includes Artisan, Asylum Distillery, Aspetuck Brew Lab, B.Good, Brick & Wood, The Cakebox, Crave, Donut Crazy, Fairfield Craft Ales, Fairfield Cheese Company, Freshii Fairfield, Flipside Burger Bar, Geronimo Tequila Bar, Joe’s American Bar & Grill, Little Goose, The Little Pub, NOM-EEZ, Old Post Tavern, Quattro Pazzi, Mecha Noodle Bar, Riverside Baking Company, Rive Bistro, Sono Baking Company, Sweet & Simple Bake shop, Shearwater Coffee Roasters, Taberna Tapas, Taco Loco, Toto, and The Whelk/Kawa Ni. Together, these restaurants create an array of delicious and diverse options for participants. Cuisine ranges from sustainable and seafood-focused to old-school Italian comfort food to nouveau-Mexican cuisine. The event will also offer various wines, beers, and cocktails to create the perfect ensemble—all available for one ticket price. Special “chances to win” great prizes and food drives will be held to benefit charity partner Operation Hope. Sponsors on board include Balducci’s, Cannondale Generators, Land Rover of Milford, Atria Senior Living, Sacred Heart University, and Yumi Ecosolutions. The event is also the precursor to Fairfield’s Fifth Annual Restaurant Week which begins October 16 and includes two dozen restaurants.
General Admission tickets cost $50: including food, drink, and entertainment. VIP Admission—with access to the Black Rock Galleries Fusion Lounge costs $100 and includes ongoing food service, drinks from VIP bar, entertainment, private parking, and a TV.
