CTbites Team

Danbury Fair has made shopping more appetizing this winter with the addition of popular restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory® and BRIO Tuscan Grille. These great new dining options bring affordable upscale dining to Danbury Fair and will provide the perfect rest stop during the upcoming holiday shopping frenzy. The Cheesecake Factory®'s award winning family friendly menu with over 40 decadent desserts promises something tasty for everyone while BRIO brings authentic, Northern Italian cuisine to Danbury CT.  

“People today are seeking a multifaceted experience when they visit a shopping center,” noted Guy Mercurio, vice president of Macerich’s National Restaurant Leasing Group. “They want inviting and engaging venues that offer great shopping, dining and entertainment responding to their needs and those of their families. The Cheesecake Factory and BRIO are a perfect fit and at the top of most shoppers’ lists when it comes to dining.” In truth, the dessert menu alone at The Cheesecake Factory is reason enough for a Danbury Fair shopping excursion.  

Beginning with a family recipe, The Cheesecake Factory opened its original location in Beverly Hills, CA. in 1978 and has grown to become a household name with locations across the country. Guests can choose from more than 200 menu selections prepared fresh from scratch, and more than 40 delicious desserts, including their famous cheesecakes.  The Cheesecake Factory will occupy approximately 8,000 square feet and will have an exterior entrance next to Brio.  If you can pull your children past this entrance without exhautive begging it will be a minor miracle. 

If Italian is more your fancy (and you're not craving cheesecake), BRIO brings the pleasures of the Tuscan country villa to Danbury, CT. The subtitle, “Tuscan Grille” is descriptive in the menu that features wood-grilled steaks, chops and seafood, pasta and housemade specialities similar to what one would find in an authentic ristorante in Tuscany.  BRIO will occupy approximately 9,000 square feet and have an exterior entrance next to Dick’s Sporting Goods. 

“Danbury Fair is excited to bring Fairfield County the only The Cheesecake Factory and BRIO restaurants,” said Maura Ruby, senior property manager for Danbury Fair. “We are thrilled to add better dining options to our eclectic line-up of fashion offerings.”

We look forward to both shopping and eating our way through Danbury Fair this holiday season. Also, don't miss their Farmers Market open all Winter. More on that coming soon.
