Bistro Mediterranean and Tapas Bar plans to open on Route 7
Ridgefield might have another new tapas restaurant opening this year.
Bistro Mediterranean and Tapas Bar has put signage up at 896 Ethan Allen Highway, the former Ritz Asia location.
It would be the second restaurant to plan an opening in 2019 on the state highway.
Bistro Mediterranean and Tapas Bar has locations in East Haven, Norwalk, and Westbrook.
The town's health department said it had not received an application yet for the business. It cannot open without a permit from the health department.
