Yo Jesup Hall is Really Good!

Jesup Hall in Westport, CT, is basically what would happen if your neighborhood pub grew up and married into a classy, elegant family.

Both the food and atmosphere at Jesup are comfortable yet refined. You could easily walk in during lunchtime wearing a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt to quickly grab a craft beer and delicious burger at the bar. And you could just as easily show up in your best dress on a Saturday night, leisurely enjoying house-made cocktails and small plates in the restaurant's chic, candle-lit and usually packed environs.

No matter how you approach it, Jesup Hall ALWAYS delivers. Just like its two older siblings, Jesup Hall is a local treasure and most definitely a place where you want to head when you #GetaSitter.
