I found a hip new place! It's called SoNo, short for South Norwalk. On the water, this formerly-sleepy maritime town has transformed itself into a thriving downtown. It's full of good restaurants, cool stores, bouncing nightclubs and art galleries.
SoNo was under my radar until I visited today. What lured me there is Penzeys, a spice store that used to be on Long Island but closed those locations. Now SoNo has Penzeys's closest store so I ventured there to stock up on Star Anise, 4-inch Cinnamon sticks, Sumac and other culinary delights.
While in town, I walked and browsed. My travels included encounters with wild creatures from the sea. Pics below if you don't believe me.
SoNo is less than two hours from my home so I'll go back just for fun. On a warm, sunny afternoon you can sit outdoors and sip a Mimosa while enjoying the breeze coming off the water. At least that's what I did. You should come with me next time!
Oh, I like that graffiti stencil! What a nice motto to think about..ReplyDelete
What an awesome find ... Wish I could go there with you next time.ReplyDelete
Hop on a boat, cross the ocean, sneak onto a train, head north and I'll pick you up!Delete
I have not been to SoNo in about 20 years. I can see that it has changed a lot. I would like to go there. I also think that good spices are important for cooking. I can’t get over the fabulous assortment of sea creatures that you encountered. How I love these photos! Fabulous captures !ReplyDelete
Go back to SoNo! It's radically different, in the way Hell's Kitchen (the subject of your recent visit and post) has changed over time.Delete
What fun! You are always discovering new places.ReplyDelete
Because I'm actively looking!Delete
Sounds like a great place to visit!ReplyDelete
It has been a while since I have been to Norwalk. We did take the kids there to the Maritime Aquarium a few times and it is well worth the visit.ReplyDelete
I also went to a few "T" meetings at the Norwalk Triangle Center which is the LGBT headquarters for Fairfield County.
I think I will add that to the list of towns to visit.
It's gotten better.Delete
