At Roost, Darien’s newest place to eat, located in the recently finished building at 1950 Post Road in downtown Noroton, you’ll be able to get coffee, made-to-go items, tea, coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner and don’t forget coffee. Doors officially open on Monday, Jan. 29.

You can enjoy your food (and coffee) at tables in or to-go from the new establishment, located on the first floor, front and center of the new Scofield Place building.

The menu is seasonal and ingredients are locally sourced, says chef and business co-owner Mike Pietrafeso.

“Working with local and fresh ingredients is what I do best,” Pietrafeso said. “We’re pulling our own mozzarella, curing all the meats and making our English muffins from scratch.”

Roost will have offerings similar to Pietrafeso’s first coffee shop/restaurant — Ada’s Kitchen + Coffee in Greenwich, which has been racking up awards.

Ada’s opened in February 2016 and has been voted “Best Breakfast” and “Best Coffee Shop” in Greenwich for 2017’s Best of the Gold Coast. Pietrafeso also was honored as one of the “Most Innovative Chefs” for the 2017 Greenwich Wine and Food Festival.

But let’s not forget the coffee — or the teas: Pietrafeso’s seasonal menu can be paired with a variety of artisan coffees from Path Coffee Roasters in Port Chester, N.Y. and teas provided by Arogya Teas in Westport.

Roost will also be open for dinner until 8 p.m., weekdays and Saturdays, and the menu will include kid friendly items to make the place comfortable for an entire family.

The restaurant is located two (new) buildings from St. John Roman Catholic Church in downtown Noroton.

The website RoostDarien.com was still under construction as of Friday afternoon, but it says it will be running soon.
