When the owners of Fortina in Stamford opened their outdoor patio for the first time recently, they decided to take an unusual approach.
“We wanted to do something different,” Christian Petroni, one of the restaurant’s owners, told the Daily Voice. “We could very easily turned this into your normal patio [by] serving the food from downstairs, but we wanted to try something different and keep it fun and fresh.”
So they founded the Pizza Surf Club. Different from a traditional outdoor experience — and no membership required — bar-goers exchange tickets for food that is served on the patio instead of ordering off a traditional menu.
Creative fare, including a unique take on chicken al pastor served in a Doritos bag, is available for purchase. Diners can also indulge in provolone and parsley sausages on a King’s Hawaiian rolls.
