Match is located on Washington Street in the heart of historic
South Norwalk. Scott Beck created Match in 1999 and he strategically
located Match across the street from his other SoNo landmark,
The Loft Martini Lounge.
Over the last seven years, Match has become one
of the favorite restaurants of Connecticut diners, winning the
2006 and 2005 "Readers' Choice for Best Restaurant"
in Fairfield County as well as the distinction of "Best Service"
in the state, from Connecticut Magazine. In addition, Match won
the 2005 "Best New American Restaurant" and "Best
Service in Fairfield County" from Moffly Publications (Westport,
Greenwich, New Canaan/Darien Magazines), and the 2005 "Best
New American Restaurant in Fairfield County" from the Fairfield
County Weekly Readers' Poll. For the second straight year Yankee
Traveler Magazine listed Match as one of only four restaurants
in the state that are a "must visit."
Storch, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America
and protégé of Todd English, was brought in several
years ago as Executive Chef, and took Match's cuisine to a new
level, which earned him a partnership interest at the age of 24.
Storch's emphasis on exceptional food made with high quality,
local ingredients, and coupled with beautiful plate presentation
and great service has made Match one of the top restaurants in
