New York Times Review of Stamford's Cotto: Thumbs up

Cotto Wine Bar and Pizzeria
Cotto Wine Bar and Pizzeria
The New York Times' Patricia Brooks gave Cotto's Wine Bar and Pizzeria a "Very Good" rating in the newspaper's region section, published Friday online.

The Italian restaurant at 51 Bank St. has "had a good bit of success" at creating "the ambience of a Roman trattoria in downtown Stamford," Brooks wrote in her review.

"Adding to the appeal of the 70-seat restaurant, which opened in December 2012, are its moderate prices, with many starters $12 or under, and many entrees under $20," she wrote. "Takeout is an option."

Brooks describes numerous dishes in her review (read the full review for information about them) and says that while there are a number of "intriguing" Italian dishes, prices are also moderate.

Back in March 2013, Stamford Patch published a review by Rosemarie Anner, who wrote: "Cotto is billed as a wine bar and pizzeria but it is more than that. It’s a polished restaurant with a talented cook in the kitchen who crafts food full of flavor and knows when and how to tweak classics."

The Stamford Advocate also recently published a review of the restauant.

Now this is death throes ... a clip job of a few sentences from a New York Times review and a few from the Patch's review back from when it was staffed. Pathetic.

Craig: We've been aggregating articles from other publications from the outset. Plus, we know that a review by the NYT is, in foodie circles, a big deal. And we know our neighbors will cross community lines to try new places. (I am reminded of Yogi Berra: “Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.”)

The Stamford Advocate actually beat me to it: http://blog.ctnews.com/lunchbreak/2014/02/07/stamford-wine-bar-cotto-earns-very-good-from-ny-times/ This is pretty common on the Internet, Craig. The proper way to do it is to add some additional information, which both the Advocate and we did.
