Adrienne Coyle joins GreenwichCT.com!

ADRIENNE COYLE - ContributerWith a BA in Government from Georgetown University and an MBA from the University of Notre Dame, Adrienne Michelle Coyle has recently joined the Greenwich community. She has moved to this lovely town to work at Ralph Lauren on Greenwich Avenue and be closer to her family, with one sister living in town, one starting at BC and her parents residing in upstate NY.Before pursuing her MBA, Adrienne worked in mortgage backed security sales at Lehman Brothers and Private Wealth Management at a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs.  After her time in the world of investments, she decided to return to the classroom to make some changes with her career and direction of her life.  Now, Adrienne has focused on developing a client base with the lovely clientele here in town and spending time with her family.  Additionally she loves to meet to people and become engaged in her community in various ways such a enjoying the eateries in town, shopping and beautiful CT parks.

THING 202 - gelato at Doppio

Up and down Greenwich Avenue one can surprisingly find a number of places serving gelato, the Italian dessert we have all come to love for its creamy natures and rich flavor. However, just because it is served does not mean it is worthy. In fact two of the four eateries offering this sweet are not even Italian, one cafe of French origin and the other of German - this does not lead to good Gelato.  What Greenwich now has and needs to indulge in is the gelato at Doppio on the corner of Elm and Mason Streets.Already known around town for its Calabrese style of italian with wood fired pizza, high quality meats and finely tuned pasta (always al dente!), this neighborhood spot has an additional attraction.  Its gelato is worth the trip itself because of its high quality ingredients, freshness and family history.  Each day the restaurant is full of various members of our community and guided by owners Joe & Lou Barresi.  Their local eatery has a warm and inviting feeling because family members such as their sister Laura and mother Loretta are there daily to make sure every guests feels welcome.However, what is it about the gelato that makes you coming back for more?  Well, it must be good when on small breaks the first things members of the staff like to snack on is gelato.  The chefs and wait staff know the food inside and out, so if they are enjoying it then it must be good!  The boys' grandfather owns a gelateria in the region of Calabria and many of the recipes were  handed down to their father and now the sons. Lou makes each flavor daily to make sure customers have simply the best. The flavors will change from time to time depending on the season, but you will always find the staple flavor of hazelnut - the premise for the best gelato along with top notch cream to give it texture.  At the moment you can enjoy the follow varieties: NocciolaCioccolatoBanana Creme BruleBlood OrangeKiwiFrutta di BoscoPinnapleBaba Rum CakeBanana FragolaPeanut ChocolateGiandujaSmurfStracciatellaTiramisuVanigliaFrangola Sorbet 

It is important to recognize how special Doppio is to the Greenwich community.  There are a number of Italian eateries through the region; however, it is critical to appreciate the Calabrese style of this Greenwich gem. When thinking about southern Italy, your excitement will grow because the cuisine is a typical southern Italian Mediterranean cuisine with a balance between meat-based dishes (pork, lamb, goat), vegetables (especially eggplant), and fish. Pasta (as in Central Italy and the rest of Southern Italy) is also very important in Calabria. In contrast to most other Italian regions, Calabrians have traditionally placed an emphasis on the preservation of their food, in part because of the climate and potential crop failures. As a result, there is a tradition of packing vegetables and meats in olive oil, making sausages and cold cuts (sopresseta), and, along the coast, curing fish- especially swordfish, sardines and cod. Local desserts are typically fried, honey-sweetened pastries or baked biscotti treats (at Doppio Loretta makes them!).Please visit http://www.eatdoppio.com/

    I went to Doppio once a few weeks after it opened. Though we liked the food, the service was terrible. Has it improved?

    Thing 201 - Manhattan meets Greenwich on Railroad Avenue

    Chinawhite...Organic Chic Chinese food executed with Perfection.  Fortunate for residents of the Greenwich community we can take the express train to Grand Central, or take the real express walk to dine at the recently opened (June) Chinawhite at 249 Railroad Avenue.  The peace and serenity of our lovely town is complimented by the high level of cuisine that the CB5 Restaurant Group has brought to Greenwich, with a fresh menu created by the same talented team behind both TAO and Budakkan, with well know locations around the world.The attractiveness of Chinawhite starts with its pure simplicity. From the design dominated by modernity with white lighting and minimalist features, to its pure organic ingredients, this new eatery is a destination for deliciousness. The high quality of the team's dedication to authentic Chinese fare is remarkable, the menu never strays from the concept of organic Chinese, unlike other restaurants which include all types of "Asian" elements. This kitchen sticks to China, and I will state again because of its importance, they adhere to complete fresh, organic culinary ingredients making Chinawhite the place that provides much food for thought.A few recommendations come to mind, however, during your visit be open to the entire menu - you may be surprised once you have Chinawhite, you will only eat their Chinese cuisine moving forward. My personal favorites are without a doubt/, the pork fried dumplings as a start....and the fried wontons with chocolate to finish.  Without saying more about what came between, take a look at the menu at:  http://www.chinawhiteusa.com/menu_greenwich/food_greenwich.html

    THING 200 - Hurricane Irene

    Get your surfboards ready! No, I'm just kidding..Hurricane Irene is on her way up the coast and Greenwich will feel her with tropical storm-like conditions on Sunday (8/28).  NOAA has the details on the storm.Irene is expected to be miles off the coast of Long Island, but could stray west closer to us.  On Sunday, strong east winds in the early morning will produce wind waves in the Western Long Island Sound (Greenwich).Everyone be safe and prepare for Irene.Visit Accuweather for up to date Irene info.

        THING 198 - Fall into Fall at Ralph Lauren

          The Ralph Lauren Flagship located at 265 Greenwich Ave. just launched their new collections for fall. For an entire week the Home department was closed for renovations in order to prepare for the unveiling of their new collections titled as One Fifth and Brookfield.Upon entering the store, one of just seven flagships in the world, your eye focuses on the exquisite circular staircase which brings you up and away - right to the Home department.  Quickly you will be greeted by Home Manager, Annette Spencer or the lovely Eva Viertl, Julie Hochstin or Melenie Jerry who are sales professionals in this beautiful department.As you are whisked away into another world, this season the new Brookfield collections draws upon the luxurious fall 2010 collection chiffon dress, combining a black background to add a sense of modernity, creating an energetic yet youthful feeling. In addition to a powerful floral design, the group includes gloriously strong plaids, intriguing animal prints and supple velvet in dark purple and chocolate colors.

         One Fifth is the collection that will bring Art Deco back into your life with elegance and luxury.  With a sleek black foundation offset with shimmering metallics and glamorous textures, you close your eyes and wake up to Old Hollywood right here in Greenwich!The art deco inspiration includes black Jacquard prints, dashing beaded pillows, mesh and metallic detailed accessories leading to a stunning setting.  Viewing this room within Ralph Lauren is well worth any trip to the avenue for shopping, dining or simple enjoyment.  Never walk past Ralph Lauren, it is always an experience which may tickle your shopping itch!

          July Greenwich Real Estate Email

          (To be included on this email you can sign up on the right bar or email me at scott@elwell.com)July and August are always interesting months in the Greenwich real estate market. As I look at the market today, I find myself focusing on three different components. The first component we are witnessing includes the spring sales that close in July/August. The second component includes those families that are on vacation and pulling back a little on their real estate search or sale. The last component, and possibly the most significant, that we are witnessing right now, includes the families that need to get into a new home by the start of the school year.When looking at the first component (spring sales) I like to focus on the annualized numbers through July. I'm a big believer that in order to get a solid grasp of the spring market you really need to look at the first half of the year. The term "spring market" really refers to those buyers looking at a new year. Some might act quickly and buy  in March, while others will search through spring, go into contract in June and close in August. These buyers are acting with the same intentions and time frame, though the  timing of their closings are completely different. For this reason I like to take a look at the whole half (or 7/12ths) of the year.

          As you can see in the chart above, we are having a great year relative to 2010. The sales prices are extremely close to 2010, though the number of houses sold is up significantly. Sometimes I will point out that a 20% bump is not that serious, though when looking at unit sales that have jumped from 293 to 351 this is a significant movement.

          Now looking at just the month of July we are actually down near 20% when compared to 2010.  I don't see this percentage drop as serious, mainly because we have a much smaller sample size. Last month I predicted that this number was going to be higher and was wrong. It happens. I think the reason that this July sales number is lower than 2010 is because we had a large number of spring sales close July 2010 and because we are now seeing the tailing end of the 2011 spring market. Once we get the final August numbers we will have the full picture of the 2011 spring market.While families tend to take vacations in August (component two) and the amount of house hunters drops significantly every year (regardless of the market), we do see the final rush for those that need to be in by the school year (component three). Many of these families have been looking at houses since the beginning of the year with full intentions on buying when they found something. For one reason or another this purchase was delayed (couldn't find the right house, financing, work, etc...), but now they have a set date they need to be in by so their kids can go to school. I'm going to make the same prediction I did last month and say that the August numbers will be higher due to this final push in demand.One factor that could easily swing my prediction off is the rental market. I have never seen this market hotter/moving faster. A well priced rental that is listed today can easily be gone by tomorrow. Some say this is due to the general issues people are having with buying. I aree, but also believe the school-year push is a large factor in demand. We'll see when the September numbers come out. I wrote two posts on my thoughts on the rental & condo market here and here if you are interested.For those of you who are interested, here are some of my other writings from this month:Interesting SALES in Greenwich, CTGreenwich Condo SalesGreenwich and National Rental MarketJuly Real Estate SnapshotYun's Real Estate OutlookGreenwich Rental MarketI hope everyone is having a great August and enjoying periods of nice weather.  As usual, if you or anyone else you know want to talk in more detail (or just have listings sent to you) about Greenwich real estate I'm always excited to talk and work with new clients.Sincerely,ScottScott P.
