Green & Tonic

When I worked in an office, I would stop here every day for breakfast and lunch for takeout. They have great fresh jucies, smoothies, acai bowls, and vegan salads and meals.

Kawa Ni

Kawa Ni is a Japanese restaurant but it’s not sushi-focused. They make Japanese pub food and it’s heavenly. The lamb dan dan, miso cucumbers, tofu pockets, and the scallop nigiri are must-haves. They also make my favorite cocktail in all of Fairfield County (true story), The Kyushiki, an Old Fashioned made with smoked soy sauce. If you’re really feeling crazy, get a sake bomb!

The Whelk

The Whelk is, without a doubt, my favorite local restaurant. Anel and I go here for anniversaries, birthdays, date nights, and everything in between. I’ve never once eaten anything there without loving it and the vibe always feels like The West Village on a Saturday night. If you go to one restaurant in FFC, make it The Whelk. And don’t miss the green goddess deviled eggs with fried oysters and the crab toast.

Spotted Horse Tavern

Whenever I meet a girlfriend in Westport for lunch, I pop into the Spotted Horse for the Chinese chicken chopped salad. It’s one of those always-there-for-you type of restaurants. It’s not the best food in Westport but it’s always a solid choice. It’s also really cozy in the winter with a big fireplace.

OKO

Where to even start with OKO? The sushi is as good as something you’d get in NYC, and I love that they source as much as possible from local farms. This is a great spot for girls night out

One of our all-time favorite kid-friendly restaurants! The service is speedy, the tacos are delicious and fresh, and the margaritas are killer.
