Bedford Street Parking Lot Transforming into a PIAZZA! - Stamford Moms

Stamford Downtown and the City of Stamford are creating the Bedford Street Piazza in the Bedford Street Parking Lot!

This will allow restaurants to expand their outdoor dining capacity. Stamford Downtown and the City will create distinct patio areas to accommodate the eight restaurants and businesses, listed below:

Bedford Hall Craft Kitchen & Bar
Bedford Thai
Bradford’s Grill & Tavern
Capriccio Cafe
Lorca Coffee Bar
Mecha Noodle Bar
Metropolitan Dance Studio
Tigín Irish Pub

Stamford Downtown will paint and landscape these patios in order to create a vibrant and inviting atmosphere. Stamford Downtown will partner with the City to install safety barriers to facilitate traffic flow and to create a safe and enjoyable atmosphere.

StrEATeries in Stamford Downtown includes the following areas:

  • Bedford Street Piazza (Bedford Street Surface lot adjacent to the Bedford Street Garage)
  • Lower Summer Street from The Courtyard to the Majestic Theatre (westside only)
  • Main Street from Washington Blvd. to Clark Street. (Closed to eastbound traffic)
  • The parking area on Bedford Street at Forest Street
  • Parking spaces on Bedford Street adjacent to Forest Street
  • Parking Spaces on the east side of Summer Street between Spring Street and Broad Street

These spaces will be in place until September 19, 2020.

Sidewalk areas are extending into some on-street parking spaces and travel lanes to allow for expanded outdoor dining while maintaining robust ADA walkways. These closures have been implemented along Summer Street, Main Street from Washington Blvd. to Clark Street and West Park and now will include the creation of the Bedford Street Piazza, transforming a portion of the parking area between Bedford Street and the Bedford Garage into a massive outdoor dining patio unparalleled in the region.

When enjoying Downtown with family and friends, guests are asked to respect posted guidelines, observe social distancing, and wear a mask at all times when you’re not seated and eating.
