Little Barn to open second location in Shelton

SHELTON — Fans of The Spotted Horse will be happy to know its owners are bringing another of its eateries to the city.

McBeck Restaurant Group, owners of Little Barn restaurant in Westport, have signed a lease at 901 Bridgeport Ave. to open its second Little Barn location in the recently completed building. The Westport location opened eight years ago.

The commercial building, latest construction from R.D. Scinto, is already home to Sugar Rush, Society Salon and Shelton Strong Start Early Care and Education.

"After the success of the Westport location, the owners decided to expand,” Scott Beck, managing partner with McBeck Restaurant Group, said. “They chose Shelton for the second location as it is a town with dynamic growth and development, and they wanted Little Barn to be a part of Shelton’s future.”

Beck said Little Barn is a “family-friendly American Pub with a widely appealing menu that ranges from delicious comfort food to a variety of healthy salads and Buddha bowls.”

He said Little Barn also features numerous craft beers and signature cocktails.

The Shelton location, which will have a large outdoor patio, will be open mid-summer 2021 and will have live music on the weekends, Beck said.

In addition to Little Barn, the owners of McBeck Restaurant Group have been involved in many restaurants throughout Fairfield County including The Spotted Horse at 100 Commerce Drive, The Gray Goose in Southport, Match in Norwalk and The Chelsea in Fairfield.
