Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEPORT -

Funchal Americana Buffet held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the grand opening of their second location in Bridgeport, this one on Fairfield Avenue.

The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, offering up omelets, soups, salads, sandwiches and more.

Owner Val Fernandes says he hopes businesses continue to open up in the downtown area.

"I think Bridgeport needs a place like this,” says Fernandes. “I believe in Bridgeport. I'm a resident of Bridgeport and I think I do want to open another location, so I think we have room for business. I hope everybody has the same intention like me. I think there's a lot business for everybody and I think we need more business downtown."

The restaurant also features a colorful mural painted by a local art student.
