Danny Meyer On A Roll

This coming Sunday’s New York Times Magazine has a loooong article on Shake Shack (and many other restaurants) owner/legend Danny Meyer.

There’s no specific mention of Westport in the text — beyond an anecdote from last March, when he told an industry crowd about his plans for a Connecticut restaurant to “huge applause” — but there is a nice photo of him addressing new hires.

In Westport.

Stools

You can’t stop progress.

First the Y sells its downtown building.

Then Mario Batali and Danny Meyer bring New York-chic restaurants to our little village.

Now Coffee An’ has gone an’ reupholstered their stools.

Alert “06880” reader Larry Perlstein sent this photo along:

The owner — George — told Larry it’s the 1st time the seats have been redone since the place opened.

What’s next?  A level floor at the Duck?
