The revitalization of Greenport’s Stirling Square will be virtually complete with the anticipated opening of American Beech hotel reception and boutique this weekend.
Proprietor Brent Pelton hopes the new 500-square-foot storefront will serve as an inviting spot, enlivening the entrance to the Stirling Square complex which also contains 1943 Pizza Bar, the Italian specialty store Basso, design studio Open Space as well as Pelton’s New American restaurant, also called American Beech.
“It’s really important to pull life toward the front of the square,” Pelton said in a recent interview inside the new space. “I’m super proud and I’m super excited.” (more…)

There’s a new place to stay during your Greenport Getaway this winter.
The Suites at American Beech, the chic new inn and restaurant in Greenport’s Stirling Square, began renting rooms in November. The inn sits above the New American restaurant of the same name which opened in late summer.

Greenport’s Stirling Square, mostly vacant since chef Keith Luce’s multi-venture complex closed shop in 2013, will be fully occupied with tenants come spring, according to the property owner and new tenants.
Nick DeCillis will open Basso, an Italian deli, in the space that most recently housed Luce’s “Nosh.” Designer Joann Brancato plans to open a design studio in the former Kim Elaine’s Hair Studio space. (more…)

Imagine a summer beach cottage.
But add to that thought an outdoor bar, a pergola-covered patio and restaurant seating for about 120 people and you have Brent Pelton and Dennis McDermott’s vision for their new Greenport joint venture. (more…)
