Featured Restaurants

Bar Q Stamford

At Bar Q, the pig is sacred, the beer is cold, the music is up, and the joint is rockin'. We take our cues from our sister location, Fairfield County CT's premiere barbeque restaurant since 2004: Bobby Qs of Westport. However, this time around, we're shaking things up a bit. Located in downtown Stamford, and hidden in plain sight, Bar Q's bi-level restaurant and expansive bar is an unexpected find. Bar Q is a barbeque melting pot of sorts – Nashville meets Kansas City, with a whole lot of midwest hospitality and a touch of New Orleans soul. Pit-smoked barbeque, Southern favorites, and down-home cooking in the form of appetizers and tasting plates, for noshing, sharing, or to build your perfect meal.

Columbus Park Trattoria

When you arrive at Columbus Park Trattoria in downtown Stamford, you'll be met with the intoxicating aroma of truly authentic regional and national Italian dishes. Our staff will greet you like family, and you'll find yourself surrounded by warm, elegant decor. Once seated, you'll be able to choose from a mouthwatering array of menu items featuring our handmade pasta, homemade marinara and sauces, as well as market-fresh vegetables, meats, and fish.
