After 40 years of success with he surf and turf staple’s owners are giving it a new look and a new name. The new restaurant will be called Table 9 and will feature a more diverse and expanded menu and a totally new look – new furniture, lightings, design and exterior, designed by The Jackson Creative Group from Rhode Island.
“We will have diverse salads, and you will still be able to get a steak,” said owner Demetri Vourliotis, to give an idea of the range of offerings at Table 9. Vourliotis purposefully kept his descriptions vague so as not to ruin the surprise when they reopen.
Vourliotis is the second generation owner and the family celebrated the restaurant’s 40th anniversary in January. His and his uncles’ daughters have just graduated from college and want to be in the restaurant business too.
“As our third generation gets involved we figured we’d do it up and give it a whole new fresh look,” Vourliotis said.
“For 40 years to be same type of restaurant is almost unheard of today. It ran its course and we figured it’s time.”
Vourliotis expects Table 9 to open in mid-April or early May and looks forward to welcoming back his customers.
The family also owns the in Buchanan and Pastels Diner in Peekskill, also community favorites.
