It is such an intimate restaurant and SO my style! Everything from the rough wooden tables with organic burlap runners, utensils displayed in mason jars filled with beans, cool stemless wine glasses, recessed mirrors in the walls…. you just know it’s going to be good! The goal of the restaurant is to support local Connecticut farmers as much as possible. Their promise is that their food is meticulously sourced and simply prepared.
The menus are to die for. Both physically and the offerings printed on them. I seriously couldn’t decide what to order. The starter salad was delicious… and I consider myself a salad snob. Fresh greens, shaved cauliflower, julienned apples, sunflower seeds all dressed in a comforting ranch dressing. I finally decided on the braised brisket served with a potato puree and brussels. Fabulous. My lunch date had the fried Rissotto balls served in an individual iron skillet. Perfection. We were absolutely stuffed but HAD to share a dessert, well, just because. So glad we did! Banana cream pie with a sweet potato sorbet that didn’t disappoint.
If you are in Westport or the surrounding area go! Your taste buds will thank you!
