February is the month of lovers. Whether it's your love for another or great food. We held our sister event, MacChilifest on Feb. 7th for those who love great chili as well as mac 'n cheese.
It was another successful event with 17 incredible restaurants and two fire departments entering 22 different dishes. The people voted and determined the best classic chili comes from Chilibomb in Fairfield. They voted Little Pub of Greenwich, Ridgefield and Wilton as the best creative chili. Then overwhelmingly acknowledged the best mac 'n cheese came from Simply Delicious in Norwalk.
While taking a moment to bask (catch my breath) in another fun event, it's time to get back on the chowda-trail very soon. We're always looking to find great chowders, soups and bisque in our quest to find the very best to compete. If you know a restaurant you think is "worthy" - definitely let us know.
