“We never closed our business during this difficult time and have always been here for all customers,” he said.

“In turn, we thank Westporters for being here for us while we continue to try our best to be here for them.” 

Sakakini said his business, although down by only 20-25%, “is much less than most local food service businesses — a wonderful endorsement of the generosity and loyalty of Westporters. We consider ourselves very fortunate.” 

Sakakini added,  “We only wish that all customers would use our curbside pickup service. Third party delivery services, such as Grubhub, decimate our small profit margin.”

Layla’s opened in Westport in October 2017.
