Lookout 49 Owner Opening New Restaurant At 15th Place

A South Mississippi restaurant owner is bringing the taste of Italy to downtown Gulfport.

The owner of Lookout 49 plans to lease the entire bottom floor of the 15th Place. He plans to turn it into Salute - an upscale Italian restaurant that features a martini bar, live piano music, and specialty coffees.

Rob Stinson says opening another restaurant downtown will send an encouraging message to people who are debating whether to return.

"Anything that can get rebuilt on the beach, will bring back the people's confidence that they made the right decision to stay, and they'll see the area grow, and that is what everyone needs right now," Stinson said.

Stinson hopes to start construction November first and open the restaurant by Mardi Gras.
