open your own restaurant

if anyone wants to try their hand at a restaurant, the old piedmont inn, most recently bistro citron, is now availabe for lease according to the signs outside of it. the only thing that has been there over the years is a number of restaurants, mostly short term. i have lived close by for years and always thought it was a poor location, not easily accessible despite their own lot, but ppl. keep trying. really just informing ppl. that it is closed

  1. I firmly believe that some restaurant properties have a curse on them. But this one just sounds like it's for a reason.

      Yeah, and I'm sure that curse is AKA High Rent!

          Thanks,..didn't realize it was the old Backals space.

      1. Plus, the old Black Goose space in Darien is still open. Great bar space...

        1. Add to the list Franks Steaks in Rye Brook. Big restaurant, nice location, plenty of parking

            Add to the list the Pizza Hut location in Glenville (Greenwich) - going way back, it was Pepino's.

            Start with 2 million and open a restaurant.

                I read The Good Times Lakeview Restaurant (good times, NOT good food) may close because of back and current taxes. Looks like the owners (also dealing with an illness in the family and sound like nice people) started some kind of petition and the tax situation has been resolved:


                PS They hired a chef from Brindisi's in S. Springs, so it doesn't look like the food will get any better . . .
