Screen Shot 2015-04-28 at 12.16.07 AM285 Boston Post Road has been home to a few memorable eateries in the past 10 years: Red River Grill; Equinox Diner; Orange Family Diner; Lushe’s Diner and most recently the Redfish Grill.

One may wonder how so many businesses can fail in such a prime piece of real estate, located on the Boston Post Road with easy access from Old Tavern Road.

The answer is simple – Rental fees that took every cent of profit they took in.

But things will be different when Eli’s opens its Orange Restaurant in June. Why? The owners of Eli’s, which also has successful restaurants in Milford, Branford and Hamden decided to BUY the building, not rent.

The $1,680,000 purchase was filed with the Orange Town Clerk’s office on April 1.

Residents have expressed their excitement about having an Orange Eli’s. We wish them luck and look forward to their opening in 2 months.
