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.

    Sausage and Stingers is my favorite. The sausage comes from the sausage factory across the street, De Yulios. When I worked in Stamford, we ate there at least once a week.

        Rheingold the brand was bought a few years ago and revived. It's actually good beer, and not micro-brew expensive. Take a look at www.rheingoldbeer.com.

              What can we do? I'll have a Rheingold and relax until someone figures out how to move the thread.

              Honestly, I look at the subject/topic before I look at the section the thread is in. I have no issue with moderators (or sub-moderators) moving discussions to the proper place. Let's just keep talking about Roadfood.

                I agree. but a post in the right place makes for a much livelier discussion. I'm not against pizza or news. I have the feeling the servers are straining under our load, though. This place is getting more popular all the time. I'm not sure everyone cruises all forums everyday and if it was in the pizza forum it would be seen by people interested in pizza. maybe I'm wrong, but I don't have the time to peruse every topic on every forum everyday. sorry if I stepped on toes. or
