The Spotted Horse Tavern in Westport is elevated comfort food
You want to go out to dinner. Are you tired of eating at home? maybe the pantry is empty; it may be your turn to provide and there is no time. You want something that isn’t a big meal but isn’t casual either; it must be a place with a full bar, lots of menu choices, and if you’re lucky, cloth napkins.
There are restaurants like this in every city – sometimes just one or two, sometimes too many to count. The menu always includes burgers, salads and sandwiches. The prices are reasonable. There are often tacos and pizzas, although they are not real taquerias and pizzerias. The cloth napkins are accompanied by a selection of starters: steak, chicken, salmon and refined pasta.
