Signs Of The Times

Amy Schneider’s collage reminds us that there are plenty of restaurants open for business — with curbside pickup and home delivery, of course. (Merchants too: Earth Animal is tucked in there, bottom row.)

As the pandemic slogs into a new month, remember how important our local places are. The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce maintains a great list of open restaurants and markets; click here, then scroll down.

OneWestport offers an extensive list of restaurants, along with clothing stores, salons, fitness centers and more. Many of those businesses are closed, but links to their websites provide information on online opportunities, including gift cards.

The Finding Westport site also includes event planners, repair shops, graphic designers and the like.

Hard times continue. But thanks to these resources, we can make life a little easier for some of the restaurants and businesses that have served us so well, for so long.

PS: Hey, dads and kids! Remember: Sunday, May 10 is Mother’s Day. Many restaurants have special menus. And the Westport Downtown Merchants Association has an extensive list of restaurants and shops that offer Mother’s Day gifts. Just click here.

There are many very excellent restaurants in town. Jeera Thai is a favorite for flavor, fresh ingredients and friendliness. (Photo/Dan Woog)

    Calise’s makes the best beef stew! We ordered a tray and Carmine packed it into individual serving sizes to use or freeze as needed because he’s awesome. It’s this comfort food (but healthy) from a familiar and friendly place – and they’re doing pick up or delivery.

    Hi Dan, Seems there is a misinformation in the WestportWeston Chamber of Commerce list of stores and their opening hours. Trader Joe’s in Westport do have “Senior hours” between 8.00 and 9.00 a.m.

    Best regards

    Jeera is amazing and, Pook the owner, is so pleasant and works so hard to make each meal an incredibly delicious experience to be remembered every time.
