Here Today: Moja Café Serves Unique Cuisine in Downtown Westport

Located next to Save the Children at 12 Wilton Road, Moja Café sits on the west bank of the Saugatuck River in downtown Westport.

 

Rick Demers, Executive Chef at Moja Café, Westport’s newest Asian and South American restaurant, has created a menu that offers “unique cuisine in trendy downtown Westport.”

“It’s interactive food that is prepared right in front of you,” Demers said.

Moja Café features items like noodle bowls and salads, but you'll find arepas on the menu, which are grilled corn cakes topped with salmon, tuna, pork, chicken or duck. The cafe also has its own line of infused sake, including flavors like cranberry and habanero.

Owner Tom Linell, who is excited to open an outdoor dining patio with seating for 30 in the spring, is pleased to see so many restaurants opening on the west bank of the Saugatuck River in downtown Westport.

“The more we can put on the west bank of the river, the better off Westport will be,” said Linell, who is a Weston resident.

Greenfield Partners will open their headquarters next door to Moja Cafe in the spring and the new multi-level parking garage acorss the street will serve as parking for the restaurant as well.

“Outdoor dining has been approved and there will be entertainment and music in the spring on the boardwalk, next to a park in downtown Westport,” Linell said, adding that a small park is being added next to the café.

“This doesn’t exist here. Nothing like it exists in Westport,” Linell said of the unique food served at the South American - Asian fusion café.
