Not only is it time to jump for joy seeing that the sun is finally shining but with this welcomed injection of vitamin D comes the beloved spring menus. Full of fresh veggies and dishes to delight, how could I not share the excitement? While the restaurants from the tippy top to the very bottom of the avenue are all on my top fav’s list there are a few off the beaten path that I like to sprinkle into the mix.
From Byram to GRW Avenue to Summer Street in Stamford the spring menus are officially here and I for one am psyched.
The 3 rest’s that I have chosen to share some spring items from are …drumroll…CHAR in Byram, Gingerman on GRW Ave and Cask Republic in Stamford.
To view the menus in full check out their websites and in the meantime below are some savory picks
