Southport Brewing Co. Expands into SONO with “NOLA”

What is all that activity on the corner of Washington and Main Streets in SONO? CTbites has discovered that SBC Restaurant and Brewery will open its fifth location in the space formerly occupied by Wasabi Chi. Currently name NOLA, SBC's Bill Dasilva told CTbites that the new restaurant will be an Oyster bar with “twists on traditional seafood from New Orleans to Maine” in “a very casual, comfortable and cool” atmosphere. The opening is targeted for February 2013. 

Overseeing the kitchen will be long time favorite to many in Fairfield County, Executive Chef Dan Kardos. Chef Kardos began his culinary career with SBC while a teenager and worked in several Fairfield County restaurants over the last few years including Napa & Co., Harvest Supper, @Bar Rosso, and most recently with Chef Bill Taibe at The Whelk.

The interior will feature an open kitchen with a Chef’s Table, bar seating for 15, plus addition seating in the main dining area for 100.

Stay tuned as CTbites takes you Behind the Scenes as the build-out continues and opening day approaches.

Good news! I was wondering where Chef Kardos was these days.

December 12, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermla19

I give it 1 year. Terrible concept.

Well thats to bad. The last thing SONO needs is another sub par food joint, especially a sub par food join that masquerades as a "brewery." What is most troubling about this is a Chef such as Dan Kardos whose prowess I so enjoyed at Harvest Supper in New Canaan and most recently The Whelk, making a decision to associate himself with such a questionable business venture.

How about wishing them luck all you negative naysayers?! SONO needs a decent seafood place (have you ever been to Sono Seafood? Yuck!). Maybe they can pull it off. Best wishes to this venture that is willing to invest in SONO.

Looks like its going to be a fun place! Just like the sun wine fest will be fun if I win!!

Seriously? And where will you park without fear of a gunshot or a stabbing on your way in or out? I give it a year, too. At most. Without a parking lot, you're sunk.

January 25, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterya ya

Aren't you embarrassed to be so sheltered that you're afraid to get stabbed in SoNo??! Seriously?? Have you actually visited a REAL city? This is a sleepy suburb...get a life. NOLA is in a great location with plenty of parking down the street. If you require valet...go elsewhere.

January 26, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterseriously?!!

Well, I live directly in SoNo and I cannot wait to get out because of how ghetto it has become. I do not feel safe here anymore. There are shootings often just a few blocks away, homeless people everywhere. Just subscribe to the Norwalk Hour and you can read about the increase in crime here. I definitely would not consider SoNo a 'sleepy suburb"...Seriously?

nice and not so nice words. regardless, if it doesn't interest you, why do you interest yourself in commenting? and ps. the doors aren't even open yet so judge not.

January 29, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterwhathappenedtohumanity

I rarely go to sono, i'm indifferent about that area, but I am excited to try out this new place, Dan can pretty much make tree bark taste good, so him trying his had in the genre of food will more than likely be a home run.

February 14, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterbyrdgang

Wow, I love Sono and am excited about the new activity. Would love to see it all revitalized again ! Hope they are open today. They could use a web site.
