WESTPORT, Conn. -- Michael Hazen has been named the executive chef at the new Westport restaurant Pearl at Longshore.
“The menu at Pearl is centered around the food people love to eat, but also has that element of surprise, something a guest didn’t know they wanted but are glad they had it,” Hazen said. “I wanted to create a restaurant that was simple and delicious, yet adds excitement to Westport’s restaurant scene.”
Pearl's menu features fresh, seasonal and sustainable cuisine while honoring the Westport waterfront and the community's healthy lifestyle focus.
Hazen has more than 20 years experience as a chef and recently launched the concept for the successful Bar Taco restaurants. He also built the Barcelona restaurant brand.
Diners can share small plates, such as Maryland crab toast, crunchy meatballs, deviled eggs and lox with wasabi caviar and more. Seafood-centric entrees include the Compo Beach seafood pot with shrimp, mussels, clams, roasted tomato fennel in a lobster broth.
Pearl at Longshore will be open daily for lunch and dinner and late evenings for cocktails and a light fare. Lunch will begin in March, and a classic weekend brunch will be served on weekends.
Pearl is at Longshore Club Park, 260 Compo Road South.
