Pizza and only Pizza
The Colony Grill in Stamford, CT still makes pizza as it did when it opened in the late 40s/early 50s: thin crusted tavern style. The flavor and crust consistency has never wavered. CG is an old Irish pub on peyote: your choices are beer, booze, soda, and pizza, with photos on the wall right out of a Damon Runyon story. Don't ask for salad before your dinner or coffee afterward - - they'll tell you "You want coffee, Starbucks is a mile and a half down the street." But, man, that pizza is fabulous. Many folks prefer the basic cheese, or toppings including stinger peppers, hot oil, sausage, and onions. This is pretty basic, but that's the main selling proposition of the Colony Grill: splendidly unique pizza and no frou-frou frills. Be a real local and eat at the bar amid the smells of smoke and Reingold.
