So much of American industry has lost its individuality in the recent past. In a country where it was once easy to find unique businesses that both drew inspiration from, and brought character to its surroundings. Individualism and independence have been replaced with uniformity and commercialism. The Whelk, a waterfront restaurant and bar located on the Saugatuck River in Westport, CT is a beautiful exception to this culturally diluting trend.
By emphasizing a commitment to locally sourcing its food through farmers and oyster men, chef/owner and four-time James Beard nominee Bill Taibe has created a one-of-a kind eating experience in which the quality and freshness of the ingredients are central to communicating all Westport, and New England as a whole, have to offer.
Our “Kitchen Share” program has given us the unique opportunity to increase wages for our back the house staff. It is something we are incredibly proud of and will continue to promote, in hopes of providing a better quality of life for those members of our team who put forth such a tremendous effort preparing the food our guests enjoy every day.
If you have a passion for food, providing exceptional service, and want to be part of this “pearl” of a business in a sea of normalcy, please contact us via the form below.
Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you!
