Eating is not an event for a kid. My husband and I can leisurely sit through a meal for 4 hours, without children. My kids? Mealtime rarely lasts longer than 20 minutes. Eating is strictly a utilitarian function that provides them with additional energy to move on their path of destruction, I mean adventure. They don’t do well waiting in line for a table only then to wait for food. I avoid going to restaurants with long wait times with the kids.
|Truffled Cauliflower & Burrata Pizza|
Therein lied the problem with Stanziatos. Friends told us about an amazing place for pizza, but the downside was a dinnertime wait of upwards of two hours. Brilliant solution: LUNCH!
This summer, we had the pleasure of experiencing pizza from Stanziato’s in Danbury, Connecticut. I was blown away by both their flavor combinations as well as their usage of local ingredients. They are strong supporters of Holbrook Farm in Bethel, Connecticut and often create dishes specifically around Holbrook’s offerings.
