We’ve voted for Westport’s best hamburgers, pizzas, soups, sandwiches and avocado toast*.
Next up, for the health-conscious: The Great Westport Salad Contest.
The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce and Berchem Moses sponsors the event next month. There are 8 categories, and (so far) 22 participating restaurants, delis and markets.
The categories are:
- Best Chef Salad
- Best Cobb Salad
- Best Caesar Salad
- Best Deli Salad (tuna, egg, chicken)
- Best Mediterranean Salad (antipasto, Greek, bruschetta)
- Best Make Your Own Salad
- Best Unique Salad
- Best Greens Salad (kale, arugula, chard)
Participating restaurants (so far) are:
- A & S Fine Foods
- Don Memo
- Granola Bar
- Joe’s Pizza
- Kawa Ni
- La Plage
- Manna Toast
- Match Burger Lobster
- Mystic Market
- Organic Krush
- Parker Mansion
- Planet Pizza
- Spotted Horse
- The Whelk
- Winfield Street Deli.
The contest kicks off March 1 (noon, The Granola Bar). Online voting begins then, and runs all month.
All voters are entered into a lottery to win a salad from the winning location for that category.
Winning restaurants receive a plaque. No one restaurant can win in more than 2 categories.
March 1 is around the corner. Lettuce begin!
*Just kidding. I think.
The prize for the voter lottery is a free sandwich??? Should be a free salad!!!
That’s what the website says!
I just heard from Matthew Mandell, Chamber director. That was a mistake. The winner does get a salad. He’s fixed his website, and I’ve fixed the story.
Soooo in Westport during Salad month- There is such a thing as a free lunch!!
But you get a Free SALAD!!
I’m surprised there isn’t a separate category for Potato Salad. No two people in the world make it the same way so this could be a real contest.
None of the above. We need a real salad bar…SWEETGREENS or TOSSED
