COVID Roundup: Rizzuto’s; Coffee An’; Plant Sale; More


It’s nice to hear that Westport restaurants are reopening.

It’s also nice to hear that town and civic officials are doing all they can to help.

Rizzuto’s and The Lobster Shack were back in business Friday. Owner Bill Rizzuto says, “our Planning and Zoning people and fire marshal were fantastic. And a big hats-off to Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce director Matthew Mandell, who worked tirelessly to support us all.”

Rizzuto’s offers outdoor dining Monday through Thursday 4 to 9  p.m., Friday and Saturday 12 to 9:30 p.m., and Sunday 12 to 8 p.m. They’re continuing curbside service and delivery too. Click here to order.

The Lobster Shack is open for curbside pickup and delivery Monday through Thursday, 4 to 8 p.m., and Friday through Sunday, 12 to 8 p.m.


Also reopening tomorrow at 7:30 a.m.: Coffee An’!

What’s a Sunday without former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb on “Face the Nation”? At least this week his live-remote hometown got a shout-out on the chyron. (Hat tip: Alan Shinbaum)


And finally … sing it, Dionne!

One response to “COVID Roundup: Rizzuto’s; Coffee An’; Plant Sale; More

  1. May I make a request to the Aspetuck Land Trust stewards to keep the dogs permanently out of Haskins Preserve and others around the area.
    I couldn’t go the other day because it literally was packed with people on Friday. I couldn’t get into the parking lot.
    I rejoiced to see the sign of ‘no dogs’. You can see the sign from the street since I couldn’t pull into the lot.
    I have been unpleasantly jumped on from behind by unleashed dogs.
    Personally, I don’t think dogs belong in the preserved. The preserves are for the native wildlife and plants to be protected. I also tire of the little blue bags thrown into the bushes or left on the wall or no blue bags at all which put it as a health hazard and just
    This is very irresponsible of the dog owners. It shows disrespect to your fellow neighbor or visitor to the area. Thank you to those responsible dog owners that do take care of your pet properly
    Thank you
