Live Music at Weston's La Roue Elayne

Weston's new dining spot—at the old Cobb's Mill Inn—will feature live music on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays this summer.

La Roue Elayne——is gearing up for summer with a variety of tasty menu items and live music three nights a week.

Elayne Cassara, one of the restaurant's proprietors, recently spoke to Patch about the new dining spot's opening weekend.

"Our opening weekend was spectacular," Cassara said, adding the restaurant had a "packed house" for the band Original Sin on that Saturday night, "followed by over 200 patrons dining with us for Mother's Day overlooking our stunning falls." 

Cassara said the restaurant plans to have live music Thursday through Saturday throughout the summer.

The service was impeccable and the staff from the front of the house to the back were clearly seasoned pro's and very happy to be working there. And of course, Where's Jimmy sounded fantastic!!
