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.
