Five Guys: Nick Marona. (May 15, 2012)

1) Five Guys Burgers & Fries

The average American consumes 25 pounds of french fries every year. And many Americans -- including quite a few Fairfield County residents -- opt for the spuds at Five Guys Burgers and Fries. Cut fresh each morning, the taters are left to soak in cold water (to remove some the starch, rendering the potato more crispy upon frying), and then fried twice in peanut oil. (For some extra kick, patrons can opt for the cajun fries with a dusting of spicy seasoning.) Five Guys Burgers and Fries has over 1000 locations nationally, and here in Fairfield County they're expanding. Co-owner Nick Marona currently has four locations in Newtown, Brookfield, Westport and Norwalk, with a fifth on the way: Five Guys expects to open its newest location in Stamford on June 1.
