366 Project - Day 241 - "Abstract (Colony Grill)"

August 28, 2016 - "Abstract (Colony Grill)"

How many slices of pizza have I eaten beneath this ceiling over the years?

Maybe 1,000. Maybe 2,000. I don't know. I only know that the very first piece of pizza I ever had came from this very room almost 40 years ago.

The first time I ever sat at a bar and had a beer with my Dad was in this very room.

Since this place opened in 1935 my family has had countless lunches and dinners here. There have been countless pizzas and beers and sodas. There have been countless conversations.

This is, perhaps, my favorite spot to be. At the very least it's my favorite "food-related" spot to be.

Today I'm here again... so my daughter can have one last pizza here before she heads off to college. It won't be her last by any stretch... but it IS a special moment. Just one of countless special moments the Pia family has had at Colony Grill in Stamford, CT.
