SavorCity, a monthly tour of Bridgeport restaurants, food, art and music, showcasing the cultural delights of Connecticut’s most diverse city. Organized by a coalition of organizations and agencies, including Rick Reyes, Capital for Change, NEST Arts Factory, the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County, and others, SavorCity features monthly visits to neighborhood restaurants where guests can experience the authentic local cuisine of Bridgeport’s many neighborhoods including Brazilian, Chinese, Thai, Colombian, Italian, Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Peruvian, Mexican, Portuguese, Turkish, Vietnamese and more, as well as local musicians and artists working in a variety of genres and media.
