For 2 months, Westporters have watched and waited as Vespa restaurant was transformed into The ‘Port.
At 5:30 p.m. today, the new restaurant — described by owner Sal Augeri as “approachable, authentic … a place to go after your kids’ practice or a quick bite with friends … a place with a definite local flavor” — opens its doors.
For the first week or so — while The ‘Port gets its sea legs — it will serve only dinner.
The ‘Port is located on the ground floor of National Hall, just across the river from downtown. It’s a great space, welcoming and warm.
And don’t forget the parking deck a few steps away, on the other side of Wilton Road.
