Zaffronia Grill is Westport’s latest restaurant casualty.
I’m embarrassed to say I don’t know the type of cuisine it served. I never heard anyone talk about it, never saw it advertised — perhaps that was part of its problem. I don’t know when it arrived, or when it left.
Right now it’s one more dark space — across the street from the long-running but now long-gone Peppermill. The 2 storefronts next to Zaffronia — Westport Delicatessen and Shanghai Gourmet — are still open, despite a dozen or so delis and Chinese places within a half mile or so.
Good luck to all those spots. I would not want to own a restaurant — of any kind — in Westport today.
