John Tortorella, the owner of his eponymous Southampton-based pool company and the Centro Trattoria & Bar, bought the onetime site of Friendly’s in Hampton Bays for $1.3 million. Salvatore Biundo, who leases Centro, will open a new eatery in the space by the fall. Tortorella had been in negotiations with the building’s previous owners, Barry Moore and Joseph Malvasio, for more than two months. Though he plans to remodel the interior of the 5,200-square-foot space, he’ll leave much of the structure untouched, 27East reported. Friendly’s shuttered in July 2017 when Malvasio raised the rent on its franchise owner. [27east]
