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.
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.
