French Press Eatery in Westbrook closes

By Melanie Creamer
Staff Writer

A restaurant in downtown Westbrook that recently underwent an expansion has closed its doors.

The French Press Eatery closed on Saturday, three days after a grand reopening to celebrate its expansion. James Tranchemontagne, a co-owner of the restaurant, said he ran out of money to keep the business going.

The French Press, which served breakfast and lunch, expanded last month to include dinner. The 55-seat restaurant is being advertised on craigslist for $92,000. The ad also says Tranchemontagne will entertain a partnership.
