Downtown Stamford’s newest dining and gathering destination, Dragonfly Lounge, combines plush furnishing in a stately gothic motif with global fare and creative cocktails. Entrepreneur Cyrus M. Tehrani and Executive Chef Bradley MacRae have created a New York City style lounge with a musical vibe and a New American menu featuring “small plates” served all night long. The space is divided into two dining rooms boasting comfy red velvet chairs and large Oakwood furnishings and crafted fixtures. Dragonfly features a large convivial bar and lounge area, as well as a lower level event space to accommodate private parties. The menu draws from Chef MacRae’s varied background and includes wonderful palate teasers such as lobster nachos, Swedish meatballs, short ribs, eggplant frites, and even spicy tuna sushi rolls!

I had been to Dragonfly before for a couple of drinks and enjoyed the atmosphere. The decor is quite beautiful and cozy. Decided to come back and give the menu a try. Saturday night, not many people. I had the plate of small meals and to be totally honest, I had 5 small meals and not even one I liked. I had the shell steak on a stick which I almost sent back because I thought they had brought me the wrong thing. It was so over fried, that it didn’t have any taste, (reason for not knowing whether chix or steak), and then the sauce that went with it and could have moistened it up a bit was just a decorative swirl on the plate, not enough to even taste. Then I had the lobster nachos which had a mixture of corn and some other ingredients. Well it was more like corn nachos, there were tiny pieces of lobster and a ton of corn. I don’t like corn but ordered it because I assumed that it was an even mix. Corn is cheap so the biggest mistake a restaurant can make is trying to make something that it’s not, that’s just cheap. I then also had the tuna roll, basically that was an overpriced tuna roll I could have gotten across the street at Kotobuki for 1/2 the price and the quality of the tuna would have been better. I had two other small meals but I honestly can’t remember what they were because it wasn’t worth remembering. I spent $45 for this. It’s such a shame because it’s a great looking place but it’s obvious that the owner does not know his market and what people are looking for. To top it off, they had live music, but they chose on a Saturday night to have this cheezy jazz group, the ones with the older female singer, and the guy who’s the one man band with the ultra synthesizer, it was elevator music at it’s best. For God’s sake it’s a Saturday night, what a HUGE turn away motivation.

I had never been to Dragonfly before. I have to say I loved the food! It was perfect to share with my friends. Also the martini list is huge, I’ll have to go back to try more of them!
