Chef’s Table offered a wide variety of food like sandwiches, salads, soups and coffees. It will be closing on Jan. 15.

Chef’s Table, located on 161 Cross Highway in Westport, will be closing on Jan. 15, due to low business.

Chef’s table opened in Westport on April 1, 2018. Most of the customers are students from Staples and Bedford along with construction workers, tradesmen and delivery men early in the morning. 

According to an article posted by Dan Woog, “Very simply, the location didn’t work out for us. We appreciate the folks who have supported us. We hope to see them at our Fairfield location,” owner Rich Herzfeld said. 

Christie’s Country Store was open for nine years before Chef’s Table took it over. Christie’s was a neighborhood friendly after-school hangout for many local students but had to shut its doors due to high rent and sales tax. It closed in December 2018. 

“I’m sad that Chef’s Table is closing, because it is so close to my house,” Abby Carter ’20 said.  “And it had such such good coffee.”
