After hanging outside 143 Montague Street for seven decades, the Armando’s sign was taken down last year when the restaurant and building owner decided to lease the space to the now-closed Spicy Pickle restaurant. Now owner Peter Byros wants to re-open Armando’s but there’s one little problem: the Landmarks Preservation Commission needs to approve the installation of the sign first, and that’s not necessarily a lay-up. “It may need to be smaller and it may need to be modernized,” said Judy Stanton, executive director of the Brooklyn Heights Association. Community Board 2 will weigh in with an advisory opinion before LPC renders its verdict, a date for which has not been set.
