Think that Chowdafest is freakin’ awesome? Take that same concept of a spoon, pencil, and a judging card, and a huge appetite and now om nom on some chili! Yup, that’s right, the first annual Chilifest is coming soon to Westport. You’ll be voting on two categories: creative and traditional. The chiliarians this year? Quite an impressive list: Ash Creek Saloon, Bobby Q’s, Brewhouse, Chili Bomb, DaPietro’s, Nicholas Roberts, Old Post Tavern, The Lime, The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood, and Wilson’s BBQ.
It’s hard to say who will have the edge here. You’d think with a name like Chili Bomb, the new Fairfield eatery would have the edge, but look who else is in the mix. You’ve got a Chowdafest winner (Nicholas Roberts) and you’ve got solid BBQ joints. No doubt we’ll be on hand to taste and taste and taste and judge a bit. But, it’s really about tasting and tasting and tasting. After we’re done, though, we’ll drive with the windows down if ya know what we mean.
