I haven't visited any new restaurants in Westport lately, but BF and I managed to catch up on a new one this weekend. We went to Positano right on the Long Island Sound with some dear friends.
BF and I arrived early for our dinner reservation. Our friends were stuck in the rainy Friday evening rush hour traffic which offered the perfect opportunity for BF and I to catch up with each other since we've each been on the go so much these past few weeks. While we waited, we enjoyed the bread basket. Beware. If you're on a no carb diet - Positano has great bread. If you're weak of spirit, you might have to ask them to take away the temptation as it's a hard one to resist.
Our meal continued with more delicious food from there. We had scrumptious salads and appetizing entrees. I had a monstrous veal chop (first time I've ordered veal since I was ten years old) but it was well worth it. Everyone at the table had a meal that was sumptuous and savory. The piece de resistance was the tiramisu. Remember - I'm not eating dessert - so I had the fresh berries. The berries were berry-licious - but the tiramisu got high praises from our friend who grades an Italian restaurant based on its tiramisu.
So go to Positano for the food. Most people go because it's one of the rare Westport restaurants happily situated right on the water. Friday night was a downpour if you remember - so we didn't get much of a view - but the fare was memorable. Call now and make your reservation for a night on the town.

But wait, there's a funny ending to our night. We were having such a wonderful time with our friends that we chatted and chatted until finally we were the last ones in the restaurant. You know you're in the suburbs when you close a restaurant at 11:00 p.m. The lights flickered, the clean-up began in earnest and we took the hint. While we could have stayed with our friends for much longer, we decided to call it a night. When we got outside, our cars had already been pulled up front by the valet. At least we were ushered out in style with a smile. So make your reservation... but don't plan to stay all night.
