In late 2006, chef, cookbook author, and food policy activist Michel Nischan teamed up with like-minded actor and philanthropist Paul Newman to open Dressing Room – A Homegrown Restaurant – reflecting their mutual commitment to neighborly hospitality, local, natural and organic ingredients and regional American heirloom food. Located adjacent to the legendary Westport Country Playhouse, Dressing Room is a community gathering place, bringing diners together in a beautiful part of Connecticut. They wanted a web site to reflect the feeling of their philosophy. A large home page slider showcases the interior, while the site’s color scheme evokes the soft ambiance of their location. The site was built using WordPress with an integrated calendar to promote their events. If you decide to go, we suggest the “P.L. Newman Burger”.
