Chelsea, Spotted Horse Owners Sign Lease for Swanky Franks Space in Westport

CTbites Team

The lease on the old Swanky Franks at 1050 Post Road in Westport has been handed over to restaurateurs Kevin McHugh and Scott Beck who collectively co-own 6 restaurants in Fairfield County (including Spotted Horse, Gray Goose and The Chelsea). These guys bring some serious street cred to the party...and actually quite a bit of party as well.

McHugh, who was the original co-owner and designer of The Little Pub in Ridgefield, plans to create a similar casual themed pub for lower Fairfield County area. 

Plans are being drafted and an open date is being targeted for the Fall.  We will bring you more information as the build out begins.
