Time for some Port Fonda!
We had a great weekend enjoying this fabulous almost-fall weather, and part of that weekend including a stop for dinner at Port Fonda, the restaurant.
In case you’re not familiar, Port Fonda started out as a very popular Mexican food truck housed in an awesome Airstream trailer. As of this summer, it now has a permanent home in Westport at 4141 Pennsylvania Ave (where KC Juice used to be). They even include many local and natural ingredients in their delicious Mexican fare.
This new Westport addition is owned by chef Patrick Ryan and partner Jamie Davila and is open Tuesday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 1 a.m.
We made the mistake (though we didn’t mind) of going on a Saturday evening during the Westport Air Fair which made them extra packed. We still got a spot outside pretty quickly, which ended up being perfect because of the beautiful weather.
Dinner started with some chips and salsa: "two housemade salsas, fresh, fried, corn tortilla chips".
Followed by Queso Fundido Especial for Erik "Green Dirt Farm bossa cheese, chorizo verde, poblana rajas, oregano, corn tortillas"
And Tacos de Calabaza for me "grilled zucchini, squash, sweet potato, salsa roja, queso fresco, cilantro, onion, lime".
Our absolute favorite part of Port Fonda is their décor and overall ambiance. One con to their Saturday night busyness and our sitting outside was that I wasn't able to get interior photos to show you all. We will certainly be back to eat inside another day, and I'm looking forward to trying some other menu items!
Excellent addition to Westport -- an awesome place to check out if you haven't been yet!
