Towne House / Douro Steakhouse restaurant complex under new management – ​​Fall River Reporter


Fall River, MA (April 26, 2022) – Today, Towne House Restaurant Complex / Douro Steakhouse officially announced that the upscale dining destination is under new management. The husband and wife team and local residents Paul Filogenio and Ariane Filogenio bought the stake from former owner Jenny Fernandes, who as of this week no longer has any affiliation with the business.

“It’s a new day for Towne House,” commented co-owner Ariane Filogenio. “This business was our first foray into the restaurant industry and to say the introduction was a bumpy one would be an understatement. We are delighted to announce that we are now the principal owners and operating managers of Towne House along with our co-owner, longtime Fall River restaurateur Luis Bettencourt.

Towne House, which opened amid the coronavirus pandemic, is an authentic Portuguese-inspired upscale restaurant complex with a Douro steakhouse; a tapas bar, oysters and raw vegetables; a wine bar; a cafe with artisan desserts; two separate outdoor dining patios; reception area with adjoining bar; and a private cigar bar and hookah lounge.

“Our top priority is to provide our customers with the most innovative and delicious dining experience in the region,” continued Filogenio. “Whether someone wants a fun and relaxed environment to enjoy cocktails and tapas with friends, or is looking for a fine meal on a white tablecloth to celebrate an important occasion, Towne House has something for everyone. We’re sure once people walk through the door, they’ll quickly become regulars.

“A lot of restaurants have struggled over the past few years and many have had to close,” said Paul Filogenio, co-owner. “We opened during the pandemic, so we weren’t able to take advantage of the various COVID-19 relief options for small businesses, which makes the weather even more difficult. That’s why we’re so proud of where we are now. We have an excellent and dedicated team, and we are all delighted to welcome everyone back!
