Building and Land Technology’s (BLT) Harbor Point development on the south end of Stamford is one of the most exciting phenomenons we are seeing among the various markets where we operate. Touted as one of the largest redevelopments across the entire country, Harbor Point is exploding with new businesses, from offices to restaurants and shopping destinations. To take just one example of the area’s many fantastic attractions, Harbor Point’s food trucks are drawing plenty of attention, and rightfully so. The quality of the food at these trucks certainly rivals that of the best local restaurants, customers can grab a satisfying bite on the go and at a reasonable price, and perhaps best of all, one can enjoy a meal or snack outdoors by the water or in one of the public parks.
Foodies should definitely check out the numerous food trucks stationed at The Beer Garden, a recent waterfront addition to Harbor Point Square featuring a wide selection of delicious local craft beers. Outside along the driveway, the trucks share a rotating schedule each night. LobsterCraft, which was named the favorite food truck of Fairfield County restaurant blog OmNomCT, offers fresh lobster rolls stuffed with local catches. Choice menu items include the Heat Wave with its habanero-infused hot butter, the Lobster BLT and the California, including avocado, tomato and ginger soy. Another highlight is the Melt Mobile truck, which was recently filmed for an episode of Bobby Flay’s new show on the Food Network, 3 Days to Open. The menu utilizes both imported and local cheeses, fresh organic produce and meats, and locally made breads to deliver the best in mouthwatering grilled cheese sandwiches.
Maddy’s Food Truck, specializing in gourmet Caribbean and contemporary American dishes using authentic Haitian Creole elements, can be found at The Beer Garden at night but also travels throughout the city of Stamford during the day. Wood-fired pizza with seasonal ingredients from local farms is the order of the day at Skinny Pines, another truck that makes stops in Harbor Point but also frequents farmer’s markets throughout Fairfield County. Hot off the Grille, which moves between Harbor Point and Norwalk, serves sandwiches and burgers including its famous half-pound Ministry Burger.
Given the extraordinary level of growth Stamford is currently experiencing, we are excited to have opened a Harbor Point office this past year. After you sample one of Harbor Point’s amazing food trucks, William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty invites you to drop by 121 Towne Street or 2200 Atlantic Street to discuss any of your real estate needs.
