Real meat-lovers probably never put the cover on their grills this winter, mild or not, and made regular trips to Westport for replacement canisters of propane.
Grilling season’s first big stretch of the year is around the corner (Memorial Day weekend), and that put your local Patch editors in the mood to set this week’s Readers' Choice contest: Favorite Local Restaurant for a Steak.
We want to know not only where you go when you’re in the mood for a ribeye or New York strip, but also what’s your favorite cut at that restaurant and what the chef does right in preparation. Is it the magical seasoning? The perfect temperature? The complement of potatoes and vegetables?
As always, this week’s Readers’ Choice contest winner will be decided not only by readers who cast their votes in the poll, but also — including in tie-breakers— by Patch account-holders who post their reviews in Westport Patch’s online business directory for future readers to find.
Contest rules are attached.
Thank you to our local restaurants for keeping us well-fed and happy, and thank you to our readers for your participation. To our local vegetarians and vegans, please know that we haven’t forgotten you and that a Readers’ Choice installment geared specifically to your diets is on its way soon!
