Some of the local eats at Taste of Stamford on 2/17...

Capital Grille
#1 Place 2011 winner

Capital Grill offering Kona crusted filet Mignon with caramelized shallot butter and Lobster mac & cheese.  
Yummy for sure. Best m&c I've ever had.

Kona Grill offering Pork tenderloin baked with an almond crust and shitake mushroom sauce, salmon wasabi sashimi.  This was so tasty.

Tappo Restaurant offering Polpettine di Vitello (Veal meatballs with tomato sauce) and Gianduja (homemade hazelnut chocolate).  This was sooo good.  I had seconds.

Mitchell's Fish Market

Mitchell's Fish Market offering Chesapeake Bay Mini Crab Cakes with jalapeno corn tartar sauce & homemade 7 layer carrot cake.  I missed the carrot cake, but had the crab.  So good.  I have lunch plans there later today...

Well, if you missed it, I've given you a photo sampling of the yummy tastes that were tabled last night at the annual Stamford Chamber of Commerce Taste of Stamford. Make sure to mark your calendar to catch it next year--it's a real food orgy.   I really love this event, but not cause it gives me a reason to sample everything till my belt pops, rather because it really showcases all the terrific food available so close to home.  I think Stamford is one lucky place.
A  big shout out to all our local downtown restaurants that participated and did us proud.  (The Capital Grille, Kona Grill, Mitchell's Fish Market, Morton's The Steakhouse, SBC Downtown, Sam's American Bistro at the Stamford Marriott Hotel, Tappo Restaurant, and Telluride)  If I missed a shot of your favorite restaurant above, I promise to get you next time...

Anthony Bourdain -Saturday, February 12, 2011 at the Palace

Runtime: 75-90 mins; no intermission
Anthony Bourdain, the internationally acclaimed chef, author, and host of Travel Channel’s “No Reservations,” has traveled to the farthest reaches of the globe – and now Tony’s coming to Stamford!
He has been dubbed “the bad boy of cuisine” for his rock star looks and blunt observations about the world of restaurants, chefs and cooking. In his uncensored, live appearances, Tony will share the fascinating, hysterical, and sometimes shocking stories behind his life, books, travels, and his hit show. And he even takes questions from the audience.
Anthony Bourdain. He’s controversial, opinionated, and always entertaining.  Maybe he'll tell us about his thumb ring...
