Photo Challenge #153

Positano has been gone from Old Mill for nearly 3 years. But “06880” readers have not forgotten it.*

Even though it’s abandoned and empty, current and ex-Westporters recognized Dana Kuyper’s photo of the interior — with Long Island Sound in the background — as that popular restaurant. Many referenced its much-loved predecessor — Cafe de la Plage — too. (Click here for the photo.)

*Nor should anyone else. It’s still serving great food, at its new location next to the Westport Country Playhouse.
