Openings & Closings & Etc.


• The latest reports on restaurants and food vendor openings, closings and transitions from the Greater Capital Region, as well as occasional entries from the Catskills, Central New York, Southern Vermont and the Berkshires.

DEVELOPING

•  The former Dew Drop Inn in Saranac Lake appears headed for a reincarnation. The village's Board of Trustees has just approved a resolution supporting the Saranac Lake Local Development Corporation’s application for $500,000 for 27 Broadway, the address and proposed name of a downtown restaurant planned for the former Dew Drop Inn location. If approved, the money would come from the $800 million seventh round of the state’s Regional Economic Development Council competition. Grants, expected to be announced in the fall, are economic development incentives awarded to various projects in 10 regions across New York. The downtown project is spearheaded by Calli Shelton Randy Coles who purchased the vacant, condemned building last year from Ed Dukett and moved to Saranac Lake. As part of the renovations, now in progress, the village would reroute its River Walk through 27 Broadway’s patio that overhangs the Saranac River.

CLOSING

The Albany restaurant Saigon Pearl is getting so good at closing, the latest instance may be permanent. The 791 Madison Avenue venue that once was home to Kim's Restaurant was closed for a month late in 2016 and now is closed again. This time, however, its Facebook page says the closing is permanent, and its website has been taken down. The Vietnamese restaurant was founded in the winter of 2014.
