Opening & Closing & Developing & Etc.

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


• It's not the opening of business,  but it is the start of an expansion -- at Manory's, the 105-year-old downtown Troy restaurant. Its new espresso bar opened over the weekend. It serves house-made muffins, grilled cinnamon rolls, and home fry baskets along with a line of espresso drinks. The addition is part of ongoing updates of the venue, including a new drinks bar, and expanding of hours to include dinner service after more than a century of being a breakfast-and-lunch spot. Manory's is located at 99 Congress Street, at 4th. Phone: 518-272-2422.

• Garofalo & Co., a market in Schenectady’s Little Italy neighborhood since 1904 that I reported late last month was closing because of a family dispute, apparently will reopen “in the near future,” according to a letter to The Daily Gazette from Mary Jo Garofalo Venditti, one of the family-member owners. In it, she blamed the closure on “poor business decisions by past management," and Says, "Rest assured that Garofalo’s will be reopened by myself, the Third Generation, in the near future." The market is located at 16 North Center Street. Phone: 518-374-1478.


• The latest projected opening for the area's first Chick-fil-A restaurant is late this month. However, just like a Wolfgang Puck Pizza venue on the drawing boards, it will not be available to the general public. Both will operate in the passenger waiting area of Albany International Airport beyond security screening, meaning only ticketed travelers will have access to them. Chick-fil-A is known primarily for its signature chicken sandwiches and wide range of milkshakes. It has more than 2,200 locations in 47 states and the District of Columbia.


Capri Village Resort, a six-acres layout on the western shore of Lake George, has been put on the block. The classic single-story motel with a vintage neon sign is located in Diamond Point, about five miles from Lake George Village. It has a 400-foot private beach with a fishing dock, and has an outdoor pool. The complex's address is 3926 Lake Shore Drive. Phone: 518-668-4829.
