WESTPORT, Conn. — If you find yourself craving deviled eggs, stop by The Whelk in Westport’s Saugatuck neighborhood, which landed at the top of GQ Magazine’s “50 Best Things To Eat and Drink Right Now” list for its Green-Goddess Deviled Eggs.

The Whelk’s deviled eggs are so delicious, they came in at No. 1 on the list, receiving a rave review from GQ contributing food writer Alan Richman .

“I ate [deviled eggs] across the country,” Richman wrote, “but none came close to this complex and captivating variation: yolks mashed and mixed with a homemade green-goddess dressing (creamy, tangy, and once as beloved as ranch), then stuffed into egg-white halves.”

“The dish gets better,” Richman continued. “The eggs are topped with two elements similar in texture but opposite in character—crunchy, sweet pickled onions and crunchy, sweet bacon-like guanciale. Or you can have your deviled eggs with fried oysters on top. Both are right.”

The brainchild of Chef Bill Taibe and Massimo Tullio, The Whelk opened last February at 575 Riverside Ave. Taibe also is the chef/owner of LeFarm.
