Two new businesses are coming to Bridgeport, the mixed use development located in Northern Suffolk.

Mayor Michael D. Duman made the announcement during the 2023 Suffolk State of the City Address held at the Hilton Garden Inn Suffolk Riverfront Tuesday, May 16.

Westside Burgers will offer “burgers and fries in a lively atmosphere with a western theme,” said Duman during his speech. The menu will also include kosher hot dogs, fries, wings and more. The restaurant is expected to open this summer.

“This charming restaurant sits near the former site of the iconic ‘silos’ and can seat up to 140 guests for both indoor and outdoor dining,” Duman also noted during his speech.

Westside will seat 80 guests indoors and about 66 in the fenced outdoor area, with a combined size of 10,200 square feet. The restaurant is designed to create a fun and welcoming environment where families can enjoy quality time together.

“We are thrilled to bring Westside to Bridgeport and offer our customers a fun and exciting dining experience,” said Chandler Cutright, co-operations manager of Westside, in a news release distributed after the address. “Our team is dedicated to providing the best food, service, and good time to our community, always highlighting our customers and providing consistency through hard work, and dependability.”

Likewise, a new brewery, Sojourn Fermentory, was announced during the address. Its opening date is yet to be determined.

“Sojourn Fermentory is working hard to launch its new 9,200 square foot space,” Duman detailed during his speech. “The new concept will feature a tasting and dining room, a full kitchen, and an outdoor beer garden. Sojourn will also engage with charity fundraisers and community festivals.”
