Start with a spicy margarita and the ceviche (best in Stamford). Then sample the arepas. Follow up with arroz con pollo or the steak chimicurri. Take an extra home. But first enjoy the flan and a cortadito.

Brasitas is located in a weird place for a restaurant of its caliber. No other restaurants around, an oil change place next to it...but it’s food is as good as any fancy street around. Plantain with pico de gallo, empanadas, ceviche ...epic.

Not close by foot but close to downtown Stamford where one could find many places for drinks and music maybe about 2 miles.
