You might notice that The Spread's online menu is more of a rough outline than a perfect match when compared with its in-house menu. That's because it's impossible to predict what chef Carlos Baez will prepare on a daily basis. Even he can't foresee the fresh ingredients that will be in-season and available that day—he creates with whatever Mother Nature gives him in the Norwalk area. Watch him work in his open kitchen, which is just a short drive from Avalon East Norwalk, crafting the fresh, seasonal dishes that the available ingredients allow. That could be something like crispy pork belly bites or bread slathered with goat cheese, truffle oil, and wild mushrooms. But those are just the smaller plates fit for sharing. Main plates often encompass eats such as pan-seared filet mignon, veal gnocchi, and lamb shank…. Read more…

In Spain, dinner doesn't mean a heaping entree portioned for one. Spaniards like to enjoy their meals among friends, passing around small plates of food so everyone gets a taste. At Tinto, this tradition is recreated in its tapas menu.  From house-crafted empanadas with guacamole to grilled shrimp and avocado, served with a kiwi vinaigrette, the small plates often stray from Spanish cuisine, but eaters still uphold the tradition of sharing and socializing. Throw in a pitcher of sangria and the tapas experience enters a new level of authenticity.  Tinto offers more than tapas, though. Eat a wrap for lunch or dig into your own plate of Mediterranean sea bass, seafood and meat paella over saffron rice, or slow-roasted suckling pig. It all awaits just a short trip from Avalon East Norwalk. Tinto 10 Wall Street Norwalk, CT 06850… Read more…

"Frickles" might sound unfamiliar, but taste one and you'll probably realize immediately that the playful name signifies an American favorite: fried pickles. Everything chefs do at Burger Bar and Bistro displays at least a touch of whimsy because, despite their obvious talent, they don't take traditional American fare too seriously. For instance, their take on the classic milkshake is for adults only—it comes with a cocktail inspired twist. That's in addition to a comprehensive beer list. And when it comes to the food, hearty burgers such as the Ultimate come with thick slabs of applewood-smoked bacon, gorgonzola cheese, sweet onions, and an aged balsamic reduction. It's just one of several signature burgers, but you can also build your own. Either way, make sure you include an order of macaroni and cheese, fries, or the popular frickles. You can… Read more…
