Two long-established, well-loved — and decidedly not fancy — Westport restaurants made big national “best of” news lately.
The magazine raved:
Westfair covers all of the clam chowder bases: New England (white), Manhattan (red), and Rhode Island (clear). This tiny storefront, with just five tables and half a dozen stools at a window counter, hides in a strip mall and caters mostly to nearby residents. Fried clams and fried oysters, both lightly battered, are especially tender and juicy.
Meanwhile, the Delish website picked 1 “Epic Nacho Plate” from every state.
Connecticut’s entry? “Nachos with sausage” from Viva Zapata.
Congratulations to 2 very popular spots. We can always count — if not count calories — on you.
