Chef Geoff Lazlo to Open a Place of His Own w/ Focus on The Farm

Geoff Lazlo, former Executive Chef at The Whelk in Westport, is heading back to his hometown of Greenwich, CT to open a place of his own. The restaurant will be located in the former Lolita Cocina space on Mill Street in Byram and will reflect the type of cooking he has done at esteemed venues such as Gramercy Tavern, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and The Whelk.  Often seen walking into his kitchen with something freshly picked from his home garden, Geoff will continue to feature produce from local farms on the menu, but also bring the farm into the physical space and the surrounding neighborhood. With a strong focus on locally-sourced, seasonal American cuisine, Lazlo hopes to push this concept one step further by partnering with the Back 40 Farm in Washington, Connecticut.

Garelick & Herbs Opens in Saugatuck: Prepared & To-Go In Westport

It’s been just over a month since Garelick & Herbs opened its newest, and second Westport, location in the Saugatuck section of Westport with the familiar food favorites and a slightly more industrial vibe than its other locations. It's the most recent food establishment to open just below the new luxury condominiums, sharing the small section of town with Craft Butchery, The Whelk, and Saugatuck Sweets.

Many favorite dishes from the other locations are available, including an array of bright and beautiful salads (a crowd pleaser is the ever popular Kale and Quinoa). Also tempting are their prepared fish, chicken and meat entrées. Numerous pre-packaged pastas, sauces, soups and salads, as well as their selection of breads and cheeses are ready for purchase, whether to the beach or for a quick easy dinner. Their same, dangerously decadent, selection of sweets grace the counter by the register. For customers looking for a sandwich, Garelick offers Paninis, breakfast sandwiches and omelets. The space includes a large, brightly lit, dining area with plenty of comfortable seating, plus an e and coffee bar, more baked goods and delicious oatmeal; or enjoy outdoor seating.
