The news that everyone figured was coming, has come: There will be no restaurant or outdoor patio bar at Longshore this summer.
As reported yesterday on WestportNow, “Pearl of Longshore” will replace Splash as the dining-and-drinking establishment across from the 1st tee.
But Pearl won’t open until mid-December. New owners BNG Partners — led by Westporter Marc Backon — need that time to renovate the kitchen and dining space. When they’re ready, they’ll offer “Mediterranean-style seafood” in the summer, with additional “meat and game” dishes the rest of the year.
Sounds good — and worth waiting for.
In the meantime, plenty of folks have to find a new summer spot for after-work drinks.
There are plenty of choices. But none with the view and ambience of the patio bar at Longshore.
