The owner of the landmark Roger Sherman Inn in New Canaan is finally moving forward with renovations, New Canaanite reported. Nes Jaffre secured a permit for the work last month, and plans do a $160,000 overhaul of the interior, the outlet reported. A former “Iron Chef” contestant, Francois Kwaku-Dongo, will take the helm at the restaurant that will eventually open in the space. “We’re changing the look of this nice, but old and tired antique inn,” Jaffre said. Before this, there were plans for the inn to be sold, but the purported buyer backed out, according to the outlet. [New Canaanite]
