Finally out of pizza funk in FFD county

It’s been a bad few months for jfood and pizza. For some reason he has not been able to get a good pie. First the guy who has been making them in the local pizzeria retired and the new guy is still on the learning curve. Then jfood went to Pepe’s in Fairfield and was not impressed. Leitizia’s in Wilton was just too messy (more effort than needed to eat)but tasted very good.

So what’s a jfood to do? Road trip to Colony Grill in Stamford.

Two words – THANK YOU

Two of us split two pies, one hot oil and one meatball and mushroom. The meatball and mushroom was the first slice, needed salt, no biggie and then the taste. The meatballs were pretty bland and jfood started feeling like the Mets, when will the bad streak end. Then the Hot Oil. A little salt and then a taste. PERFECTION FINALLY. Major sigh, big smile, and the bad streak now turned hugely positive.

So if you’re down in the dumps and need a good pie, the Hot Oil at Colony is still a 10.

Thank you, thank you, and thank you. Pizza is back on the A-List.

Now if the Mets can only figure out how to score more runs than their opponents.
