It’s late spring and a new place to eat is expected to open in Stamford. At 2,860 square feet, the new fresh&co (freshandco.com) has found its spot at Atlantic Station (atlanticstationstamford.com), thanks to RXR (a real estate owner, operator and developer). This is the seventeenth location in the country and the first in Connecticut for fresh&co, a family-owned restaurant group founded in 2010. It partners with local farms and uses its own farm on Long Island to provide chef-inspired meals with seasonal, local produce.
Atlantic Station, at 355 Atlantic Street, is a luxury development consisting of two residential towers and office and retail spaces. The first phase (325 rental units, 34,000 square feet of retail space and 30,000 square feet of office space) was completed in January 2018. The second tower (325 rental units and 48,000 square feet of retail space) opened in July 2021.
“We are pleased to welcome fresh&co to Atlantic Station. We’re confident that their presence will be a popular amenity to residents, the workforce and visitors alike,” noted Whitney Arcaro, RXR executive vice president and head of marketing and retail leasing.
Victor Shaio, owner of fresh&co Stamford, added, “The pandemic created some unique challenges in negotiating this deal, and we are grateful for the team at RXR for their professionalism and hard work throughout.”
George Tenedios, the cofounder and CEO of fresh&co, summed things up, noting, “fresh&co is excited to join the Stamford community and offer our neighbors our fresh, healthy, and clean eats menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have been feeding New Yorkers fresh and nutritious food these past twelve years and are excited to continue our expansion.” See all options, from juices to grain bowls online.
