An Old Mill area resident writes:
My husband and I are devastated over rumors that Positano’s will be sold to a developer from Greenwich, to become a residential home.
I’m not sure how many people know that the wonderful owners of this restaurant fought to have 3 tables of outdoor seating a few years ago, but were denied due to a very few uptight neighbors. This devastated the owners.
Most of us in this area love them, and Positano’s. Having a restaurant on the beach in Westport is truly magical, even a necessity.
The number of marriage proposals that I’ve seen take place at Positano’s is a testament to the beauty of the space.
I can’t believe there aren’t more options for both food and festivities on the Sound. I have heard wonderful stories about Allen’s Clam House (now the Sherwood Mill Pond preserve).
Splash will now be the only water view restaurant on the Sound.
Today, I called Positano’s to track down the rumor. A representative said he could not confirm the potential sale, for a private residence. He said, however, they would “probably” move by the end of the year.
