Hello Bridgeport & Beyond!

Welcome to all the food you can eat. I’m Foodie Jasmin and my idea of fun is eating. That’s why I try anything at least once. As part of a big family in the Bronx, I always loved going out to eat as a child, and since my parents worked late hours, we went out…

Station House Wine Bar and Grill

2520 Main Street, Downtown Stratford at the Train Station   “Who would have figured this place would feature such an extensive sushi menu, even more prominent than their seafood and Italian specials.”   It’s the Station House Wine Bar and Grill but all the regulars know it as the Station House since it sits within…

The Smithy

Star of Istanbul

  29 Markle Ct, Bridgeport, CT I have a new friend, Eddie. He’s the owner of Star of Istanbul in downtown Bridgeport. When I stepped into his place for the first time, it was love at first sight. I had the most amazing food at this little Turkish gem. And thanks to Eddie, I also…

And now that the Barnum & Bailey Circus has lowered its last tent, the Barnum Publick House may be the closest we’ll ever get to the “Greatest Showman on Earth.”  The…

BODEGA (corner store)

I love this place for more reasons than tacos. Bodega gets it right! The food. The ambiance. The great service. The space. The margaritas. The GUAC! And, reasonable prices. I mean, what keeps you coming back to your favorite restaurant? Exactly. My favorite part of this restaurant is their sign above the kitchen defining what…
