Info

Last year, Bobby Valentine took a position as general manager of the Boston Red Sox. This has not been as alienating as expected to Fairfield County's legion of Yankees fans, says Don Corsello, one of the managers of Bobby Valentine's. “I don't think it's hurt business,” says Corsello. “I think [Stamford is] about 50/50 Yankees and Red Sox.” Valentine, a ball-player and manager who has had stints leading the Texas Rangers and New York Mets, has always stayed loyal to his hometown of Stamford, where he founded his eponymous restaurant/sports bar in 1980. (He even briefly served as the city's director of public safety and donated his token $10,000 salary to local charities.) So fans have exhibited loyalty to the bar, no matter where Valentine hangs his hat. The place has an extensive selection of drafts and bottles, a menu of delicious baseball-themed dishes (like our favorite, the Don Zimmer, a veggie burger smothered with spinach and mushrooms), a weekly schedule of karaoke and poker nights and a seemingly endless array of sports memorabilia from Valentine's personal collection tiling the walls. If you could resist all that on account of Bobby V's new gig, you must really hate the Red Sox. Like even more than they deserve!

Winner of Best Sports Bar in the Fairfield County Advocate's Best Of Readers' Poll 2012.
