Guests can dine in at this location with 100 seats and plenty of space for local residents and professionals, or take items to-go with convenient parking on-site.
Chef Pietrafeso and his team will offer an all-day experience for customers with made-to-order breakfast and lunch items, including toasts, oats and smoothies, and coming soon an evening offering with small plates, wine and beer.
Roost Stamford will offer its signature scratch-made items, featuring locally sourced ingredients, in a seasonal menu and paired with locally roasted artisan coffee from Kestrel Coffee Roasters.
The new Roost is located at the recently opened Stamford Urby, designed by Amsterdam-based Concrete, with 648 rental apartments.
“Roost has a loyal following in Connecticut and we’re excited to bring this concept to Stamford,” said David Barry, president and CEO of Urby. “The addition of Roost Kitchen + Coffee reflects our commitment to building the larger community between our residents and the neighborhood.”
Since opening Roost’s ‘sister store,’ Ada’s Kitchen + Coffee in Greenwich in 2016, both Ada’s and Roost have received local accolades, including most recently being voted ‘Best Breakfast’ in Greenwich and Darien/New Canaan for 2019’s Best of the Gold Coast.
