Local restaurant owners sign leases in Brookfield Village development

BROOKFIELD — A trio of local restaurateurs are preparing to set the table as part of Brookfield’s downtown revitalization project.

The owners of Note Restaurants in Bethel and the owners of Salt 2.0 in Litchfield and Torrington have signed lease agreements with Brookfield Village developers to occupy available commercial space on Federal Road that is expected to be completed this spring, according to brokerage Advantage Commercial. RealtyGeorge Walker.

The announcement means Tony Heslin, the famed owner of Bethel’s Note Kitchen and Bar, and Executive Chef Calin Sauvron will add a new location in downtown Brookfield, offering a full-service menu and a bar complemented by a hall. concert several nights a week.


Salt 2.0 owner Andy Stowers will open the restaurant’s third location in Brookfield, offering burritos, bowls and wraps.

The third lease is from a New Milford-based restaurateur who plans to open #Cafe, a casual breakfast and lunch venue called, according to Walker.

“Obviously, we welcome these businesses with open arms and hope they will be very successful in our city,” said Tara Carr, First Select Women. “Hopefully this will help make it the destination of choice that it should be.

Brookfield Village is at the center of the town’s revitalization project, which includes new sidewalks. The city is expected to begin construction on the third of at least six phases this summer.

Landlords are scrambling to get approval for their design plans across town, along with owners of a dental practice who have signed a lease to occupy a fourth space in the soon-to-be-completed phase two of the development of Brookfield Village. A fifth location included in the development is still available for a future occupant.

The new businesses will add to the commercial tenants occupying the spaces completed in phase one of the Brookfield Village project, including the Honeymoon nail salon, the Traveling Chic boutique and the Rich’s Ice Cream Dairy store.

Other commercial tenants in the Phase One section include La Piazza and the recently opened 4 Corners Nutrition Bar, which Walker says are expected to open soon.

Following this success, Brookfield Village developers applied for “phase three” approval for the project last summer with plans to include two additional buildings and parking space on the site.

“The goal is to continue to produce high-quality commercial and residential rental space,” Walker said.
