Another legendary Westport restaurant — Bobby Q’s — is closing, after 11 years on Main Street. Its final day is March 31. A press release quotes owner Bob LeRose on the long-rumored news:
We’ve had an amazing run as a member of the Westport community for the past eleven years, establishing friendships and seeing kids grow up over the years. We look forward to celebrating with our friends and family over the next three months, remembering all of the good times that were had – birthday parties, family dinners, celebrations and more – and those that are still TO BE had at Bobby Q’s, before we fire up our smoker in Westport one last time at the end of March. While I’m sad that this chapter of my restaurant career is coming to an end, I’ll have some exciting news coming soon on my next chapter.
Over the next 3 months, the restaurant will offer several promotions.
During January — to celebrate National Pie Day, Bobby Q’s will give each table 1 complimentary slice of pie. Other events will be announced on Twitter (@bobbyqs) and Facebook (Bobby Q’s Bodacious BBQ & Grill).
LeRose is proud to have had a strong relationship with the Westport Fire and Police Departments. He thanks those members for their service by providing 50% off their dine-in or take-out bill throughout January.
Concerts will continue Saturdays at 10 p.m., through March.
And then Bobby Q’s will join Splash and the Red Barn as noted Westport eateries to close. And — like its predecessor, Onion Alley — it too will become one more entrant in the Westport restaurant memory lane game.
