talkingtransportation250.jpg

Because once we drive our cars off the crowded highways, we assume it’s our constitutional right to find “free parking.”

Trust me: whether at rail stations or stores, parking comes at a price paid in more than just dollars.

For decades, city planners and zoning regulations have shared with Detroit in a conspiracy to deliver on that dream. Consider the following:

Comings and Goings: Trattoria to Replace Conte’s

By Dave Matlow

The final papers have yet to be signed, but plans are nearing completion for a new Italian restaurant, Rizzuto’s Wood-Fired Trattoria and Bar, to take over the vacated Conte’s Restaurant in Westport’s Saugatuck area.WestportNow.com Image

Owner Bill Rizzuto, who also operates similar style eateries in Bethel and West Hartford, said he expects to open at 540 Riverside Ave. by summer.

Rizzuto, formerly the general manager of the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich from 1996 to 2001 and with the same hotel chain in the San Francisco Bay area for two years, moved back to Connecticut in 2003 to enter the restaurant business.

As for opening a new business during the current economic downturn, Rizzuto said he is confident “that people still want to eat out as family entertainment.”
