It’s the European pub with the understated, modern finishes to make the sophisticated American comfortable. The dim lighting is alluring, but not dark. The seating is stylish and comfortable, but not heavily worn.

The menu is simple, but the meal tastes as beautiful as it looks.”

CTBites-03222016“Rothbard’s menu is filled with interpretations of traditional, comfort food, and their Patty Melt started with a simple recipe, added a little bacon, swapped the cheese and let the kitchen work its magic.

HartfordCourant-03022016“Old Europe is made new at Rothbard Ale + Larder. The European gastropub in downtown Westport comes from the team behind Walrus + Carpenter , the American gastropub in Black Rock. Rothbard gives us a contemporary take on Swiss, German and Austrian food — rooted in tradition, yet youthful. Think sausages and Sriracha.”

Asher-01262016“The dish was made up of Kielbasa, Bratwurst, and Weisswurst (the three core members to any good sausage dish).
