Paloma Grill in Stamford CT

Social Media Sampling

Last week we received an invite to head up to Stamford CT to sample some of the Latin-infused menu at Paloma Grill. The restaurant is located on the water in the Harbor Point area, an up and coming section that boasts several restaurants, clubs, and eateries.

In addition, the restaurant is owned by Chef Aarón Sánchez, of Food Network fame.

The menu features a wide array of offerings, from whole roasted cuts of meats, to an extensive raw bar, ceviche, grilled seafood, and a slew of of shareable plates. 

Of course, we started with some of Paloma's classic and contemporary cocktails made from a wide selection of handcrafted spirits, including tequila, mezcal, pisco, cachaca, and rum.

Garganelli pasta with chorizo

The pasta dish was the only 'miss' of the night for me as it was a bit too heavy in seasoning for my flavor preferences.

Then we moved on to our entrees! Favorites were the amazing Short Ribs and the moist and flavorful Cuban Chicken.

Short Ribs of Beef with ancho cacao rub and vegetables

Cuban Chicken with a side of tamarin fried rice

Dessert was a double win with the light churros and the creamy deliciously rich salted caramel cheesecake parfait.

We loved Paloma and Chef Sanchez has a winner with this location directly on the waterfront at Harbor Point with amazing views. The restaurant features both indoor and outdoor seating, along with a private dining room and bar dining options for larger parties.

A salute to Chef Nanyo - Thank you for a delicious dinner!
