I'm one of those unfortunate souls who has been priced out of Stamford (my hometown) and will moving to Black Rock in two weeks. Found a decent 1BR right on Fairfield Avenue.

I like to eat and drink, so where are your favorite spots to do just that?

Obligatory plug for Merritt Canteen, can’t drink there but it’s the highest and best form of drunk food

If you are moving the Black Rock section of Fairfield Ave, you will have an abundance of places to choose from. BRYAC, Fire Engine Pizza, The Castle, Roadrunners, just to name a very few.

Oh man, just within walking distance: brennans shebeen is a great place for beers (really, there are a bunch of bars, it’ll depend on your taste.

In terms of food, tasty yolk, Timothy’s ice cream, gai-ja, black rock social, my friend loves tacos from mi rancho, fire engine pizza (or whatever it’s called) is pretty good.

I really think you just upgraded, have fun!

Black Rock Social (gastropub with a revolving global specials menu), Tasty Yolk (breakfast/lunch), and Bereket (Turkish) are fantastic. Shiki Hana for surprisingly good sushi

Order pizza from Nauti Dolphin in Fairfield. By far the best

Sweet Basil is my favorite for Chinese

If you’re looking to go out, Old Post Tavern in Fairfield has buy 1/get 1 happy hour 7 days a week. Sinclair is a scene, if that’s your thing

If you like BBQ, try Post Oak Bbq, it's legit.

Been living on Fairfield Ave in Black Rock for 7 years now. Absolutely love it. Tons of options in black rock but also easy access into Fairfield for plenty more.

I moved to Black Rock - Fairfield Ave as well, about a year and a half ago.

The Tasty Yolk is good for egg sandwiches and other good stuff (insane chicken sandwich for one).

The pizza places are shit. The two taco trucks pretty much suck. The Chinese place is pretty awful too. New places will be spring up soon to cater to all the new tenants at the two huge rental complexes they just finished across from the metro station on Brewster.

The Turkish place had a decent shawarma cone to think of it .
