Best of Westport 2020

Golden Advice
It simply isn’t summer without classic New England foods, now with mouth-watering new twists.

“I love the casual Connecticut road shacks up and down the coast, so being able to offer those quintessential items at a high quality in my home town is a win win for everyone. Burgers, lobsters, fried clams, oysters and foot longs, oh my! You have to have the slider combo, mini lobster roll, a mini Match Burger and our just-fried potato chips. Oh, and don’t forget the frose or frozen lemonade!”

MATCH BURGER LOBSTER
Matt Storch
Executive Chef and Owner


Golden Advice

Clean out the closet or add something new.

“Roundabout has been at the forefront of sustainable fashion for over three decades. Reuse, reimagine and repurpose to create a better environment for all. Comfy clothing is key. We all got used to being comfortable these past few months and decided that we like it! Loose cotton dresses in pretty prints. Throw in a coordinating mask and you are good to go.”

ROUNDABOUT
Laurie Perren
owner


Golden Advice

Protect your pets this summer.

“Summer is our favorite time of year to get outside and enjoy. Family owned and operated since 1979, Earth Animal’s mission is to try to stop the use of harsh chemical flea and tick products topically and internally for dogs and cats. We offer a wide variety of natural flea and tick products proudly formulated by Dr. Bob Goldstein. Make the switch today-safe for you, your families, your animals and the planet.”

EARTH ANIMAL
