The sign promised The Meatball Shop would open this spring.
They’ll miss by a day.
But what a great “soft” opening the 8th restaurant in the New York-based chain promises.
The shop — which replaces The ‘Port in National Hall, on the banks of the Saugatuck River — hosts a preview party this Saturday (June 22, 5:30 to 8 p.m.).
Guests will enjoy a tasting menu of (duh) meatballs, plus seasonal dishes, wine and beer.
The Meatball Shop is certainly getting involved in the community. 100% of all ticket purchases go directly to the Westport Volunteer Emergency Medical Services team.
The official opening is a few days later. If you can’t wait — and/or if you want to support Westport’s great EMS program — click here for tickets.
