As you can probably guess, I like food. Connecticut is wonderfully diverse, there's a lot of interesting things that happen in our area food-wise. I've gathered up a few of my favorite food-related news items that I found around the area this week that I'd like to pass along to you in case you enjoy trying new, delicious things.

I'm a sucker for Greek cuisine, I love Gyros, Moussaka, Spanakopita, and oh, the Filo. Well, coming up on Saturday June 12, 2021, The Assumption Greek Orthodox Church at 30 Clapboard Ridge Road in Danbury is holding a Greek Eats to-go pre-order & pick up drive thru event. They're offering 9 different menu items and you must pre-order by Friday, June 11, 2021 at 9PM. Click HERE for more info and to place your order.

I was getting my coffee this morning at the Starbucks on Church Hill Road in Newtown, and I noticed there were "Robeks Juice OPEN" signs all over the parking lot. Well, it's true, the area's newest Robeks has just opened up for business at 75 Church Hill Road in Newtown. Robeks is a national-chain known for their fresh juice concoctions, but they also serve smoothies, bowls, and toasts. The new Robeks in Newtown is open weekdays from 7AM to 8PM, Saturday 8-8, and Sunday 9-7. Find out more about them by clicking HERE

The third piece of culinary news is about my favorite pizza place, Domenick's & Vinnie's Pizza, which has three locations: Middlebury, Waterbury, and Southington. D&V's took to their social media accounts this past Tuesday (May 25, 2021) to announce that they started opening up their Waterbury and Southington locations on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 8PM and the Middlebury location will follow suit soon. D&V's has previously only been open Wednesday thru Sundays, and I can't tell you how many times on a Monday or Tuesday night that I've craved that delicious cupped pepperoni.
