French Bistro Coming to Scarsdale Avenue
Scarsdale Improvement Corporation, the owner of the property at 878 Scarsdale Avenue previously occupied by Metro Diner, offered a few more details on the future of the site.
According to DJ Petta from Scarsdale Improvement, a French Bistro will be opened by a Scarsdale native who spent many years living in Paris and also operated some of the finest restaurants in NYC. The new owner plans to open a restaurant that “channels the warmth, charm, and energy of Parisian dining.”
The deal was brokered by Ashley Badger of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s Scarsdale along with partners Bob Virgulak and Michael Spremulli, who represented the new restauranteur and worked with Petta to secure the new business.
Petta said, “All of us at Scarsdale Improvement are excited to welcome another restaurant tenant to the Village. This deal moved so smoothly thanks to everyone involved, especially Ashley and her team. We think the French Bistro will be a great fit and are looking forward to all our new restaurants and retail tenants opening for business.”
No details have been provided as yet about the new owner, the menu or the schedule for the opening.
