May: Athens’ Stewart House selling to a local

Athens’s Stewart House restaurant is being sold, Dick May is reporting. “Owner Owen Lipstein has entered into a sales contract with Reggie Young of Athens, a food industry veteran who leads a small syndicate of investors,” May wrote in his Seeing Greene blog earlier today. May reports the 100-seat restaurant would attempt, “a small market focusing on local products,” next door, and…”the upstairs rooms would be renovated,

‘with soundproofing and modern amenities,’ shaping a 12-room ‘comfortable hip hotel environment.’ Also, ‘Further development of the facility’s garden, dock and waterside features,’ would be undertaken, the centerpiece being a 60-seat, ‘outdoor wood-fired pizza shack.”
