Slew of Chain Restos coming to Stamford...

I'm sure you've all seen that they're close to finishing up the new addition over at the Mall....and we're now adding PF Changs, California Pizza Kitchen, Kona Grill, Mitchell's Fish Market & Cosi to the downtown dining scene.

Personally, I'm not thrilled about it, as I much prefer the independant restaurants in the area. But I suppose it could be an option for many of the office workers here in town...

I don't know a thing about Mitchell's Fish Market, but it looks like it's more of a midwest chain than east coast.

My SO & I met the guys opening up Kona when we were dining at Duo one night...and they were both very nice. I checked out the menu and am just really, really confused. From sushi to pizza to fish to beef. I just don't really get it.

So I guess the question I'm asking is...will the hounds go eat at these places?

I probably won't....only because I much prefer the local options & would certainly choose quality over quantity any day of the week. And more so on that note - I wonder how these restaurants are going to affect our mom & pop places.
