Clarification on Property at 1620 Post Road East

A property at 1620 Post Road East, which houses Pane e Bene Italian restaurant, Stanton Miles power vacuum and home decorations store, Innovation Luggage, and Redi-Cut Carpeting, is for sale but has not been sold, according to its owner.

In a Sept. 15 WestportNow Comings & Goings story about Stanton Miles moving, store co-owner Dave Kernstock was incorrectly quoted as saying “the building was recently purchased.”

What he actually said was “the building is being sold,” a fact confirmed by property owner Ernest Breiner, 91, of Fairfield, who says he has owned the property with his late brother since 1948.

Meanwhile, Angelo Capponi, co-owner of neighboring Pane e Bene said he had received “many calls and e-mails from the restaurant’s loyal clientele” expressing disappointment that it was leaving the site, which the WestportNow story did not state.

WestportNow Teardown of the Day: 39 Imperial Ave.

WestportNow.com Image
An application for a permit to demolish the main house and adjacent structure at Westport’s 39 Imperial Ave. is in process. The main house, built in 1895, a two-story antique, has 5,340-square feet. The adjacent structure, built in 1984, a one-story ranch, has 2,402 square feet. The properties are situated on a 1.01 acres. Because the main house was built more than 50 years ago, the application will be reviewed by the Westport Historic District Commission. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com
