Rui Correia, the former chef at Oporto in Hartsdale, has opened Douro, a Portuguese restaurant, in Greenwich.
Rui says he’s cooking his own version of Portuguese food, which will include dishes made with sardines, octopus and baccala — but also dishes made with influences from around the Mediterranean, such as a roasted beet and goat cheese salad and a killer version of hummus.
He’ll still be serving in roast chicken for two — but he’ll also offer a half-chicken for a single diner.
Right now, the restaurant — which is has tables and accents in dark espresso-colored wood and walls of blue based on the color of the river Douro, which runs through a major wine region in Portugal — is BYO, but soon Rui will offer flights of ports, a house sangria and Spanish and Portugese wines.
The 411 coming soon. Until then, 28 West Putman Ave., Greenwich. 203-869-7622. dourorestaurantbar.com
