Restaurant Sold in Norwalk

Ronald E. Groves, vice president of George J. Smith & Son Commercial & Investment Real Estate of Milford, recently brokered the sale of the restaurant business at 36 Westport Ave. in Norwalk to Herecontre LLC.

Damiani LLC, the seller, previously operated Sornatale’s Restaurant at the location, a 3,000-square-foot freestanding building located a few doors west of Stew Leonard’s. The buyer, who also owns the award-winning Acapulco’s Restaurant in Stratford, plans to reopen the Norwalk location as an eatery called Los Cabos in August. A new lease was negotiated with the building’s owner, Michael Tehrani.

“Good restaurant locations are hard to come by in this part of the state,” said Groves, who has been selling and leasing restaurants for over 25 years. “The parking requirements for restaurants in Norwalk are so strict that it’s close to impossible to find suitable locations that offer enough parking, high-traffic counts and good demographics. This location should be a home run for Herecontre.”

Groves represented the seller and John Theodoridis of RE/MAX Above and Beyond Realty represented the buyer.
