West Town Eatery

Enjoy top-flight food, spirited cocktails, and warm hospitality. Come early for dinner, stay for the Cabaret!

Rogan and Abby Lechthaler of Ludlow’s acclaimed Downtown Grocery invite theatregoers to experience their award-winning cuisine as an accompaniment to Weston’s world-class theatre in the revitalized West Town Eatery, located downstairs at the Playhouse.

A Weston native, Chef Rogan's credits include Boston’s Ritz Carlton and Mistral while his DTG cuisine has received accolades from the likes of the Wall Street Journal, GQ, and Garden&Gun.

Here in Weston, Lechthaler's light, bright, and seasonal menu combines with Abby’s irresistible southern charm to make a perfect opening act. "Dinner before a show should be a positive, energetic, creative and memorable experience,” says Abby, “and light enough to leave guests feeling ready to take their seats!” And when the curtain comes down, there’s the Cabaret: an hour of stand-up comedy and live music, featuring Young Company actors and MainStage talent.

“A bit raucous and cheeky, with an affordable admission,” the Cabaret menu features delicious desserts and savory late night snacks, with a selection of large format beers, carafes of wine, and specialty cocktails. Yankee Magazine calls it the “Best Place for a Nightcap” in Southern Vermont.

Do dinner and a show, or just drinks and dinner. Make sure to bring friends, and enjoy the festive atmosphere filled with happy chatter, delicious food, and views of the falls. The West Town Eatery is a gem, and worth the trip.
