After enjoying some delicious fondue a few weeks ago at The Blue Pearl in New Haven, I had the pleasure the following weekend of visiting Stinky Bklyn, the famous cheese shop in Brooklyn. This, of course, got me to thinking, "Stamford is a pretty affluent place. Why don't we have a cheese shop?"
Why don't we have a cheese shop? Is it because Stamforders are not across-the-board wealthy like Greenwichites? Does the lower-income end of our population deter gourmet eateries and stores? This also feeds into my Blandford argument. Are we too jaded for gourmet food and unique stores? Too urban? Too white-bread?
Sigh...it seems like every time I go somewhere cool or see something unique, I wistfully imagine having that same experience here at home. That said, if any venture capitalists would like to hire a food lover with no business management experience to run a cheese shop in Stamford, drop me a line!
