Sure, this is “06880.” But occasionally we wander up to 06883. Westport and Weston are pretty closely connected — especially at a place like the Lunch Box, in Weston Center.
But after today, that connection will end.
Alert reader Sarah Gross says this is the last day of the popular restaurant. It closes tomorrow, for 5 weeks.
Then a new owner takes over — and turns it into a new place. No one knows if the employees — many of whom worked there since colonial times (just kidding) (sort of) — will have jobs when it reopens, as something new.
Sarah is one of its many heartbroken customers. She just brought the devastated crew daffodils from her garden.
That brought a few smiles. Otherwise, today’s mood at the Lunch Box is as gloomy as the weather.
