Colony Grill will move into old Harrison's building
A Colony Grill restaurant will open at 36-38 Broad Street in Milford, the former location of the landmark Harrison's Hardware store.
This will be the fourth Colony Grill in Connecticut; other existing sites are located in Stamford, Avon and Fairfield.
The Colony Grill concept began in 1935 in an Irish neighborhood in post-Prohibition south Stamford. Since then, the “Colony” has become famous for what is now its only menu offering: a one-of-a-kind, one-size, thin-crust pizza - with or without its signature hot oil - served simply, amid classic American charm, restaurant owners said.
Colony Grill has been featured in such publications as Gourmet Magazine, Connecticut Magazine, and Roadfood: The Coast-to-Coast Guide to America's Best Local Eateries.
“We are extremely excited to be working toward opening a Colony Grill in Milford in the coming months,” said Chris Drury, co-owner of Colony Grill Development, LLC, and a former longtime National Hockey League standout. “My partners and I love the history of the space and its proximity to a wide range of other great restaurants and retailers, public transportation, and the beautiful Milford harbor. We are hopeful Colony Grill can become a strong community partner not only in the vibrant downtown area but, by extension, throughout the entire City of Milford for many years to come.”
