that dish: a stamford institution

A veritable icon of Stamford, CT a journey to Colony Grill is a must for any pizza lover. The trip is and easy one. A 45 minute train ride on Metro North (express trains run about every hour from Grand Central Station) and a short cab ride and you are there.

A glorified dive bar, Colony Grill serves just one thing: pizza. The crust is cracker thin and the cheese and sauce, nothing short of boring. The toppings here are as famous as the pie. Most every pizza out of the oven is topped with Colony’s famous hot oil. Another local favorite is the sausage made fresh daily at De Yulios across the street. The wait is long but you will be glad you did. Be sure to order your own as you won’t want to share.

My favorite? Hot Oil, Stinger Pepper, Pepperoni. YUM.
