The Peacock Offers Diverse Cuisines

The owners of Bistro 303 are growing their Westport presence with The Peacock, an intimate new restaurant in the space next door. Led by chef Brian Mehl, The Peacock offers an expansive menu influenced by cuisines from around the world—tom kha gai with coconut broth and smoked duck; peri-peri spiced chicken with charred greens and chamoy butter; and Canadian salmon with creamy parsnip, pickled red cabbage and anchovy sauce. Salads, pastas, and desserts—like the pecan oatmeal cookie pie with granny smith apples, tamari cider caramel, and oat crumble—are also available. “We wanted a place for people to gather that felt quaint, inviting, inclusive, and focused on the cuisine, and that’s exactly what The Peacock is,” said co-owner Jeffrey Schmitz.
