Tuesday morning following the storm we went out in our car to see the aftermath. After many turnarounds and dead ends because of fallen lines and trees ,we made our way to Sound Beach Avenue in Old Greenwich. To our surprise, Garden Catering had its door open and a hand-written "Open" sign posted.
We went in and there was the owner Frank Carpentieri, Jr., making egg sandwiches in their gas grill in the dark and serving hot coffee they had driven over from their Stamford location. There were no lights, no register but there they were serving the community the best way they could. We've always loved GC for their dedication to the Old Greenwich community and their always present smiles. But this time they went above and beyond to help out.
