Get Your Fixe At Restaurant Week

Positano’s and Splash are rumored to be on the doomed list. Westporters will hate to see them go.

Yet — in this dog eat dog(ho ho)  world — restaurants open and close all the time. Our dining scene is alive and well.

To show off what’s out there, the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring “Restaurant Week.”

It runs from this Sunday (October 5) through October 19. Alert “06880” readers will notice that is actually 2 weeks, not 1, but there’s nothing wrong with under-promising and over-delivering.

Arezzo -- one of Westport's most popular restaurants -- is among the many spots offering special Restaurant Week menus.

Arezzo — one of Westport’s most popular restaurants — is among the many spots offering special Restaurant Week menus.

Each of the 27 participating restaurants offers a prix fixe meal. Lunches are $15, $20 or $25; dinners, $25, $30 or $35. Brunch starts at $20.

Restaurant Week participants include 323 Main; Acqua, Arezzo; Artisan at the Delamar; Blue Lemon; Boathouse; DaPietro’s; Geronimo; Gray Goose; Little Barn; Mario’s; Matsu Sushi; Mumbai Times; Pane e Bene; Pink Sumo; Post 154; Rive Bistro; Rizzuto’s; Sakura; Spotted Horse; Tarantino; Tarry Lodge; Tavern on Main; Terrain; Tierra; Tutti’s, and Via Sforza.

Two specialty cocktail venues — Luxe and Neat — serve pre-dinner drinks and nightcaps.

It’s a good thing Restaurant Week is really 2 weeks. With a little planning (and figuring in brunch and drinks), you can try every spot.

  1. Just to let you know – Positano’s has signed up as a late edition to the list of great eateries participating in Restaurant Week. Also, if the building they are in does change hands, it is their intent to open up elsewhere in Westport. Stay tuned.

    In the mean time, EAT LOCAL and with two weeks, as Dan said, you have time to check a whole bunch of bistros. See you out there.

    re Positano’s, the urgent need is to save having a restaurant IN THAT LOCATION! (IMHO) re Restaurant Week, am I right that Mario’s is the only restaurant on the list from “way back?” Visit Mario’s, everyone! : – )

  4. Definitely imagine that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest factor to take into account of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst folks think about issues that they plainly don’t realize about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the entire thing with no need side effect ,
    folks can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more.
