I've been a long time lover of Colony Pizza. In the Stamford (not so ascetically charming) location I've been quite a regular, taking down a whole onion and hot oil myself, thank you very much. So when I met the one of the owners a few weeks back I practically hugged her when she told me that they were opening a second location in Fairfield. I missed the opening when I was in Montauk so this weekend I finally made it up. I walked in close to 9pm on Friday night and the place was packed and it was still that way when we left at 11pm. This place is turning such a crowd that they've actually had to order two additional ovens. There was something so great about the energy in there, I know that sounds cheesy, but Colony is now owned by a group of best friends and you can really tell that when you're there. The new owners take such pride in ensuring to each customer that yes, this is the same amazing Colony Pizza. The new location is twice the size of the Stamford location with a great bar space and awesome exposed brick walls.
The pizza is better then ever and the teeny-tiny juice glasses have gotten just the size upgrade they needed - what more could you ask for?
