And then there were two. Tony Ramandani brought Red Rooster Pub to Newtown, naming the popular eatery after the town's iconic symbol. Now, he is spreading the comfort food love to Ridgefield.
In late fall, Ramandani will open Red Rooster Pub at 43 Danbury Road. A place all-too-familiar to Ramandani. Two decades ago, the seasoned restauranteur earned praise and loyal customers when he opened Mirabella at that same location.
"I've come full circle - I'm back!" says Ramadani, who owns sister restaurant, Red Rooster Pub in Newtown, as well as Max 40 in Danbury and Portofino in Wilton.
Construction is underway and Ramadani is transforming the former Toscana restaurant into a rustic-style family eatery boasting distressed wood, horse barn doors, old beams, and a new, open floor plan. "There's a lot of love to give!" Ramadani says as he when describes the inviting atmosphere and vibe of the new restaurant.
Ramadani is planning a late fall opening for Red Rooster Pub in Ridgefield.
