Rosy Tomorrows Historic Eatery

Keeping the Danbury Fair Alive & Well

As a Fairfield County native, Rosy Tomorrow’s has been a Danbury institution for over 30 years. Loaded with antiques, many relics from the great historic Danbury Fair, Rosy Tomorrow’s is a restaurant and gathering place like no other. If you were fortunate to have visited the Danbury Fair in its heyday, visiting the restaurant can literally take you back in time to reminisce on those “good old days”. Upon entering the establishment one feels like they are entering an old fashioned caboose of yesteryear. (The building actually incorporates the design of the first railroad station in Connecticut according to the restaurant’s history that is part of the extensive menu). Of all the artifacts of years ago, my personal favorite is the flying acrobat trapeze artist that is suspended from the ceiling of the restaurant and can practically be touched when seated in the restaurant’s upstairs area. (What can I say; I am a sucker for a man in a leotard!)

The large menu offers (and I quote) “damn good food at reasonable prices”. On my most recent visit, I had a hankering for one of Rosy’s outrageous burgers and satiated my craving with a perfectly cooked blue cheese and bacon burger. (The secret to this delicious creation is the blue cheese that is literally encased within the burger that oozes out with each delectable bite). Again, I am salivating as I write this! My partner in Martini Hunting crime choose an offering off the special “tropical menu” and was delighted to dig into a shrimp, vegetable and rice dish that smelled and tasted heavenly. As homage to the tropical menu, the servers wore leis to highlight the theme of the week. Lucky for me, I can say with a straight face that I got “lei’d” at Rosy’s!

In addition to great eats, Rosy’s has an extensive bar menu that includes, yes; you guessed it…martinis!  My current fave is the blueberry martini. How cool is it to get your antioxidants in a cold, tasty beverage?  Well, this martini is more like a dessert than a cocktail with a graham cracker dusting that kisses the glass’ rim. Yum!  I can’t wait to get back for another of these tasty treats.  Rosy’s also offers 15 rotating beers on tap, exotic martinis, killer Bloody Marys, a late night menu and happy hour.  What’s not to like?

Come the warmer weather, patrons have the option of eating and imbibing on Rosy’s covered deck area that is al fresco dining at its finest. With the wind in your hair, you too can enjoy great food in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. With live entertainment every night, this destination is a must visit for the adults, as well as, a family friendly place for the kids. (Be sure to check out the train that travels around the bar area – a must see for kids of all ages!)

Weekly promotions round out the Rosy’s experience.  Be sure to visit the website the latest and greatest goings on at this unique establishment.  Be sure to visit the restaurant between May 1-7 for the Cinco de Mayo specials and starting July 3 for the seafood fest! Believe you me, there is no way you can go wrong with anything off the menu at Rosy’s!

Come back soon to live vicariously through the adventures of the traveling Rhontini!
