An old bank would be renovated.
The owner of Fiori's Pizza and Italian Restaurant in Brookline has applied with Peters Township to open a new restaurant on Route 19. Owner Fiorentino Moscutiello is asking for council to approve a conditional use to renovate the former Parkvale Saving Bank at 3801 Washington Rd. into a sit-down Italian restaurant. The plan calls for enclosing two drive-thru tell lanes, turning the former bank lobby into the main dining area, making two former offices a kids' area for birthday parties and other functions and creating a Wi-Fi lounge. The restaurant is proposing to operate from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. during the week and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. during the weekend. The restaurant would seat 100 customers and no delivery would be available.
