Drawing a Blanc: Westport’s Loss is Plaza’s Gain

The hits keep on coming for the entertainment district known as Westport

Blanc Burger + Bottles Thursday opening on the Plaza at 4710 Jeffereson will have it all; the town’s hottest upscale burger hang and the now defunct Plaza McDonald’s hamburger-eating Burger Boy statue out front.

Meanwhile, back in Westport Blanc’s closing January 31st, adds to the growing number of high profile bailouts by the likes of Starbucks, Blayney’s, The Corner and Loma Vista Hardware.

    Westport is going the way of Bannister Mall for the exact same reason but nobody will acknowledge the elephant in the room.

    “high profile bailouts” like Blayney’s and The Corner? Good one. I don’t think the Octaganerian tour buses that roll through to Blayney’s were spilling over to 180/Harry’s/Foundry or any other Westport businesses.

    Sucks to lose Blanc and Lom Vista, but Westport is FAR from going the way of Bannister Mall. That’s ridiculous – even for this site.

    Places like Firefly, Simply Breakfast and an expanding Kelly’s all point to Westport holding its own a little more than people on this site are willing to give it credit for.

    Although, I’d be surprised if many posters or contributors to this site spend any significant time there.

    I do spend a lot of time in Westport, and yes, it worries me a bit when a successful place like Blanc leaves the tenant mix.

    That said, there isn’t another area like Westport in the city. I like the people there; now that they’ve lost most of the Jager bomb crowd to P&L, it’s more of a grown-up place to go.
