New “Modern Dive Bar With Great Casual Food” Set To Open In Colonie
The chef-owner of a popular Latham eatery is getting ready to open another Capital Region restaurant.
There has been a lot of buzz in the hospitality industry this week with the news of 2 of the area's legendary pub and grubs closing up shop for good as their owners get ready to retire. The Purple Pub in Watervliet wrapped up a 51-year run after closing their to-go operation, and news broke this week that JJ Rafferty's Bar & Grille in Latham will be announcing a closing date soon after 20-plus years.
As the old saying goes, when one door closes, another one opens!
Korner Bar & Grille To Open In Colonie
Chances you have dined at Innovo Kitchen in Latham or you are aware of the eatery's stellar culinary reputation. The Times Union says Innovo chef and owner John Laposta has a new restaurant in the works! Lasposta tells the Times Union the new 'Korner Bar and Grille' is being planned for an early 2024 opening at the Village Square Plaza located at the corner of Karner Road and Central Avenue in Colonie.
I have only dined at Innovo once for lunch, and it was easily one of the best meals I have ever enjoyed here in the Capital Region. Based on that, I think we can expect great things when the new eatery arrives next year!
