Colony Grill, begun in Stamford, Connecticut in 1935, has achieved a measure of fame for their hot oil-topped thin-crust bar pizzas. They’ve announced the future opening of a fourth location, at 515 West Avenue in Norwalk, for this summer. It’s going into a new major development called Waypointe. The three existing Colony Grills can be found in Stamford, Fairfield, and Milford.
We imagine selling pizza in Connecticut is more challenging than in any other part of the country. After all, America’s greatest pizzas are found in the Nutmeg State. The bar here has been set awfully high. And while we wouldn’t match Letizia’s up against the best of its New Haven brethren, emerging from their oven are pizzas that we would be glad to call our neighborhood pies. These are well-executed pizzas, served with an unusual level of hospitality for a pie joint.
