Since the Fall, over and over again, people have been recommending The Lila Rose, at Harbor Point in Stamford. I started following them on Instagram immediately and was in awe of the vibe and how incredible the entire restaurant was. I was dying to see the decor in person, and try the food, and fancy cocktails. It seemed like literally every day, there were more and more posts about the restaurant, from my kids, my nieces and nephews, other bloggers, and friends. Everyone LOVED this place. I had such FOMO and was desperate to try it out. I luckily was introduced to one of the owners, JJ and we made a plan.
First of all, when you walk into the restaurant, the entire decor is the most playful and pink with cool artwork on the walls. It reminded me of the Gallery dining room at Sketch London and if you know you KNOW. So already I was completely in LOVE.
I had seen the cool drinks that they served via all the Instagram stories, posts, and tic toks. Their cocktails come in whimsical glasses and each one was more exotic and delicious than the next. And I hear this is nothing compared to what they are planning for the summer!!!!
I have to say, they have also done a great job with keeping their patrons safe with outdoor dining and plexiglass barriers between every well-spaced table.
The menu is primarily made up of Tapas so it makes Lila Rose the perfect place to go with a group of friends. We were soooo into ordering a bunch of things because it all sounded so delicious. So JJ brought us some of their favorite dishes. I have to say it all lived up to the hype.
We tried the Gnocchi Pesto, the Calamari Chipotle, the Flat Iron Steak, the Tuna Taco, the Burger ( with melted Mozzarella poured on top!!!), the Lobster Roll, the Blackened Tuna and a few other things. Honestly, everything was really good. I almost want to get in the car and go back tonight!!!!!
We ended our meal with the raspberry cheesecake and an assortment of yummy truffles.
If you get the chance to visit Lila Rose you will not be disappointed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. There was not one single detail over looked from the fresh flowers adorning the drinks, right down to the pretty gold flatware on the table.
Thank you JJ, we had the most amazing time!!! I cannot wait to come back!!!
