Whelk - Westport
Has anyone been yet? I can't wait to try!!!
Everything I've recently read about this place mentions The Whelk doesn't open until this weekend (Jan. 27/28/29). Other than anyone who went to a 'friends and family' type event, I don't expect you'll see any reports until this weekend or soon after.
I do think the CT Bites folks managed to attend some sort of promo event, so you can check their site for first impressions.
