About Bailey’s Backyard
Bailey’s Backyard opened in October 1999 in what was the former Ridgefield Coffee Shop. The mission then, as it is now, was to offer refined, New American cuisine in a polished, casual atmosphere.
The next logical step in the popular restaurant’s evolution, taken in spring 2013, transformed it into a true farm-to-table restaurant. The mission was expanded to include a commitment to creating a menu based on the freshest and finest local food sources: Meat and poultry from North Salem NY, Ridgefield and Wilton, produce from Ridgefield, Bethel, Wilton and neighboring farms, and fresh seafood from waters off Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York as well as from the Chesapeake Bay.
From innovation to farm fresh ingredients to traditional
Biagio’s is an Italian restaurant providing an exceptional blend of spirited cooking and gracious hospitality to our neighbors and friends in Connecticut and beyond.
IT ALL STARTED WHEN BIAGIO WAS JUST 6 YEARS OLD.
He was first taught how to make hand made pasta in the kitchen with his Grandmother Dominica. Connecticut native, Biagio Barone, has been cooking Italian food since early childhood. As a young boy, Biagio expressed his love for cooking by preparing gourmet meals for his family. In pursuit of his passion for culinary arts, Biagio traveled to Southern Italy seeking to master a traditional style of Italian cooking inspired by his grandmother and father Enrico. Upon his return, Biagio built upon his experiences abroad developing a seamless fusion of classic and modern Italian cuisine. Today, Biagio continues to express and serve both passion and love in all of his cooking.

A New York Times article called Bloodroot “A Salon for Activists.”
Yes, lively political conversation is usually as close as the next table, posters for animal and women’s rights are in clear view, but mostly people come from all around to eat our good food and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere.
There’s no cash register and no waitressing. Place your order with a woman seated behind a desk after making your choice from the blackboard menu. Enjoy your food either in our comfortable dining room or on our patio in good weather, and bus your own table when you are through. Things are a little different here. It’s evident from the moment you step inside the door. This is a feminist vegetarian restaurant.
In the mid-1970s, a number of women felt the influence of feminism strongly enough to put their beliefs into effect, by starting feminist businesses. We were among them. We wanted to create a feminist community for men and women that was self-sustaining. A lot of feminist bookstores were cropping up all over the country, but, Selma had always been interested in cooking and the way that food seemed to bring people together. So, opening a restaurant seemed the logical choice.
Our vision included offering ethnic foods, we wanted to serve food that represented a diverse group of people from all over the world. We also didn’t want to use meat, as we don’t believe in exploiting, dominating or eating animals. From our first cookbook, The Political Palate, “Feminism is not a part-time attitude for us; it is how we live all day, everyday. Our choices in furniture, pictures, the music we play, the books we sell, and the food we cook all reflect and express our feminism.”
Two of the original collective members still provide the foundation for Bloodroot today. We are Selma Miriam and Noel Furie. We look forward to meeting you.
