g/r/a/n/d Restaurant Review: Long known as a see-and-be-seen establishment, rather than a place to eat, this Stamford hot-spot has evolved to become a desirable destination to wine and dine, too. Small-plates options include an array of sliders like barbecue short ribs, turkey and classic beef, and on the flipside, satay coconut chicken skewers with sweet mango chutney. Large plates, such as the crispy roasted chicken, whipped potatoes and sage haricots verts, and seared salmon with an Asian barbecue ginger glaze make g/r/a/n/d worth the reservation for dinner before the party starts. Diners are mostly relegated to the glass-railed balcony, on the same level with the DJ, who keeps the space pulsating until closing time on Fridays and Saturdays, while an energetic party scene develops on the first floor bar and the cozy couches in dark corners. Linger over a pot of chocolate fondue or descend the illuminated steel staircase and lose yourself in the vibrant mix.
