Stamford Winter Restaurant Weeks 2014 kicks off with Signature Winter Cocktail Showcase and 32 Participating Restaurants | OmNomCT:

"Stamford Downtown always does a killer job with their events and Winter Restaurant Weeks 2014 is no different!  Not only are we talking about nicely priced lunch and dinner prix fixe menus from 32 different restaurants, but the deals will be going on for two whole weeks.  Yes, from 2/17 until 3/3, you can get great deals at some of your favorite places or try out new restaurants like the Irish-pub-iness of Castle Bar & Grill, the Mexican-ness of Tomatillo Taco Joint, the gastropub-iness of Cask Republic, and the seafood-iness of F•I•S•H•.


New this year is a kick off party that Stamford Downtown is calling the Signature Winter Cocktail Showcase.  It’s going down at Hudson Grille on 2/18 from 5:30-6:30 and will feature bartenders from all over Stamford.  During that time, they’ll be mixing up Signature Cocktails that you get to sample for free.  Free cocktail samples?  Oh yeahhhhh.  We’d recommend arriving by about 5 or so because Hudson Grille will undoubtedly pack up quickly."
