French Fare With Enticing Vistas
A Review of Rive Bistro, in Westport
The New York Times, July 11, 2013

"Few things are more pleasant than a water view while dining, especially in summertime. And at the new Rive Bistro in Westport, it’s almost impossible not to have a water view, no matter where you are seated. Not only does the restaurant face the Saugatuck River, with wide windows on three sides, but the screened patio, with a long banquette, also has a head-on river view. If you happen to be there in the early evening, you may have the pleasure of watching scullers skim past."

French Treat on the Saugatuck (or, Garde au Chien!)
Connecticut Magaine - Table Hopping, April 9, 2013

"I thought I’d died and gone to . . . Paris, but no, I was seated by a window watching gulls soar and swoop over the Saugatuck at Westport’s newest eatery, Rive Bistro. It’s a wonderful spot, right smack on the river, which I liked so much I was back for lunch after having dinner here the night before. "

Rive Bistro: French flavor on banks of the Saugatuck
Stamford Advocate, July 11, 2013

Close your eyes for a moment and imagine dining on a shared bowl of moules frite at a quaint little bistro overlooking the Seine.
Ripples of laughter, clinking of wine glasses and tiny waves from rowers against a backdrop of sunset blue and orange skies are your sights and sounds.
Now open your eyes, and the only change is from Seine to Saugatuck -- another scenic river meandering to ultimately the same sea."
