Westport Restaurants :: Le Penguin's new summer menu and renovated patio

When not focusing on building my own business, I moonlight as a freelance writer-slash-food writer-slash-food-photographer for various local and regional publications and websites. It's a tough job but someone's got to do it! I love discovering new places from the hole in the wall/diamond in the rough to upscale fine dining perfection and everything in between. Even more fun is being asked to write about a place I truly love. Le Penguin in Westport is one such place. It's a perfect destination for a girls' luncheon, a romantic dinner for two, or bring a gathering of your near and dear for some great classic French cuisine.
