Another New Restaurant in Westport via Westport Daily Voice

Photo Credit: Vanessa Inzitari

This just in from The Westport Daily Voice...

The owner of Cuvée, an upscale Zagat-rated restaurant and lounge in West Hartford, is set to open a new eatery with a different name on Westport’s Main Street.

A lease for the 3,000-square-foot space on the lower level of 125 Main St., underneath the Gap, was signed Sept. 7, Westport developer David Waldman said Wednesday. Todd Rose, the restaurant's owner, is aiming for a spring opening, said Waldman. His firm —David Adam Realty — represented the landlord and Rose in lease negotiations.

"He [Rose] is a very good operator, and he’s got a very good following," Waldman said. "I really think he’ll have a great chance of success there.”

Cuvée’s menu is eclectic, offering a variety of food styles, including new and traditional American cuisine, Italian, Japanese and vegetarian. Menu items include salads, burgers, sandwiches, lobster rolls, sushi, tacos, desserts and more.

Community Plates Needs Food Runners!

Community Plates is a non-profit organization that has employed one simple idea to address the complex issue of hunger, and in just a handful of months, made a huge impact in our community.  Community Plates connects food to people in need of it, by rescuing good food that would otherwise be thrown away and delivering it to hunger relief agencies in Fairfield County.  Community Plates has 26 food donors stretching from Greenwich to Fairfield, but we need your help to complete the direct transfer of the food to those who need it. 

Food runners drop off food that can be served to local food insecure individuals the same day – if not within just a few hours. We have many food rescue opportunities that we want to add to our schedule but we need more runners in order to add new donors and feed more people. To be involved with the Community Plates initiative, volunteers are asked to commit to just one food run or bin collection a month (15 – 60 minute effort).
