Terra by American Beech from property owner Brent Pelton is replacing the cicchettie and wine bar Basso. Pelton, a Manhattan attorney, purchased the square in September 2014.

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…)

Expect a place where you can sit with a glass of wine and enjoy a tray of savory cured meat when Basso Italian market opens its doors in Greenport this Friday.

“It’s old-fashioned cicchetie,” owner Nick DeCillis of Mattituck said while serving up charcuterie during the Greenport Tall Ships festival on Sunday. “But at the same time, it’s a market place. You can buy pasta, olive oil, jarred olives and more.” (more…)

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…)
