A new seafood joint is expected to open in September at the former Bossa Nova Brazilian steakhouse on Ferry Boulevard, Karen Kaiser, the town's economic development director, tells Stratford Patch.

The owner of Lumi Seafood Restaurant & Lounge owns other restaurants in the area, including a Mediterranean eatery in Fairfield, Kaiser says.

Kaiser was short on details but said she'd forward our contact information to the owner. We'll provide more information when it becomes available.

Hope it's better than the previous restaurants in that spot. They're already off to a rough start opening a seafood restaurant on the water, not long before the cold weater sets in. If they continously have fresh fish, good service and rotate the menu - I'm there!

Sounds great

Sounds great. Stratford residents should all try to focus on our town restaurants to keep them in business. The ones downtown need a visit or two from what's been posted.

Will definitely give this place a shot. But I really can't blame residents for leaving town for a better quality meal. Stratford Center is laughable compared to some neighboring areas.

Yes - support our restaurants! I'd heard that the Brazilian place was actually pretty good, but I never made it there, so I'll try to follow my own advice. The restaurants downtown might be laughable compared to other towns, but there are decent ones downtown and elsewhere - at the Train Station for example - and the Thai place that used to be across from the station was a good spot, which didn't make cuz people didn't go... If we can't support the few decent places already here, we're not going to attract new/better restaurants. If this town can't support a few good restaurants - soon there won't be any at all.

He's right about Lotus Thai, that was absolutely great. I think Stratford residents lost a good place, but it really comes down to not enough Stratford residents must not like Thai food.

I think that this new seafood restaurant is a much better fit for Stratford, especially on the water. I loved the idea of a Brazilian steak house, but those places are generally pretty expensive by their nature. It was never the kind of place that people would make one of their regular haunts, more of a special occasion kind of spot that might have survived in a big city.

All for supporting our restaurants and will do so if they put out quality food and good service. If they can't do that, they will fail.
