'A Lot of Interest' in Former Fruit of the Four Seasons Location

What would you like to see move in at the former Fruit of the Four Seasons?

The investors who recently-rehabilitated the former home of the on Atlantic Avenue have received numerous offers from the area business community, a representative said Monday afternoon.

Charles Patsios, a representative of Stone River LLC, said the investing group didn't rehabilitate the interior of the building with a specific business or type of business in mind but simply "did it the right way."

"Sometimes (investors) will just try to get a remediation project like this done as quickly as possible," Patsios said. "We got in there and knew we wanted to get it done right."

Although he said Stone River is currently accepting offers from a variety of prospective businesses, Patsios, of Swampscott, said he thinks the location would be perfect for a healthy Mediterranean restaurant.

"We want to leave it open-ended, but I think a single occupant restaurant there with outdoor seating would do very well," Patsios said. "It's a very visible location, it's located on a corner and it has a lot of available space."

Yes, a restaurant, but one that serves early full breakfast and lunch. There are enough of the "dinner" types especially since Hungry Bettys has new owners, 5 Corners is about to open, same for the Tex-mex by the PO and new owners at pelino's. Outdoor seating would be a big plus!

I continue to be devastated by the loss of the Fruit of the Four Seasons. I wish someone else would open a similar business. Fruit of the Four is sorely missed.

Early a.m. restaurant plus autoparts and a woodstove with old chairs around it.

open another self serve ice-cream store because the lines at Orange Leaf are already way to long

I agree, a FULL breakfast place would be great. Driftwood is too far from certain parts of town, and is crowded and difficult to park near. We find, as a family, we are always headed out of town in order to get a decent, full service breakfast.

Pam, I agree!
