STAMFORD — The new owners of the former Napa & Co. are cooking up a transatlantic-themed replacement to succeed the popular restaurant at the corner of Broad Street and Summer Street.

Napa & Co. closed Saturday after 10 years at 75 Broad St., ahead of the Napa owners’ sale of the business to a New York group of investors. The successor restaurant, an Italian-American bar and grill called Bar Zipoli, is scheduled to open in the spring.

“It’s not just another Italian restaurant with pasta and pizza; it’s going to be a very hip operation,” said Steve Matsis, sole broker of the Napa sale and director of the restaurant division for Stamford-based Pyramid Restaurant Group. “It’s going to be a very New York-style Italian grill and bar. And there’s an element of American tavern.”

 The menus will include a range of fare including pizza, steaks, seafood and wings, according to Matsis.

The new restaurant will feature a 14-stool bar and outdoor dining on Summer and Broad streets, according to Matsis. Bar Zipoli also plans to host live jazz and show videos of performances from the likes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin on flat-screen televisions in the bar.

“The new operators are looking to create a new go-to bar scene,” Matsis said. “The millennials have fueled what has happened in downtown Stamford. The new owners are capitalizing on that by creating this scene for them.”

Matsis described Bar Zipoli’s prices as “mid-range.” Entrees would cost between $18 and $29 and well drinks such as a vodka going for around $6.50, he said.

“We’re trying to include all aspects regarding different comfort levels, different appetites and different expectations of entertainment for the evening,” Matsis said. “We think we’ll appeal to millennials, baby boomers and seniors.”

The Bar Zipoli management teams includes investor-partner Abey P. Joseph, of Yorktown Heights; investor-partner Binu Baby, of Valley Cottage, N.Y.; and partner and executive chef Antonio Greco, of New Jersey.

Matsis declined to disclose financial terms of the acquisition.

Napa & Co. developed a loyal following for its Napa Valley-influenced fare and extensive wine and cocktail menu. But Napa co-owner Mary Schaffer cited high expenses and the lack of a large bar and outdoor dining as challenges to continuing to operate the restaurant.

Neighboring restaurateurs such as Fred Laist, owner of The Fez, a Moroccoan restaurant at 227 Summer St., said that they were optimistic Bar Zipoli could succeed in the same space, which is part of the Courtyard Marriott hotel. Laist pointed to the compatibility of Bar Zipoli with the other dining establishments on the block given that it would represent the only Italian restaurant on the lower end of Summer Street.

“It’s a good mix and that enables everybody to not fight for same customers, but fight to bring more people down to lower Summer Street,” Laist said. “Certainly I think it’s to the whole block’s advantage to have a restaurant there that’s a runaway success. It does no one any good to have it dark or struggling.”; 203-964-2236; twitter: @paulschott
