Gleason’s Preparing for Grand Opening Aug. 31

South Street restaurant and bar is currently serving Peekskill on a limited basis.

Gleason’s, the newest addition to the Peekskill dining scene, is open for business on a limited basis and is looking forward to its grand opening at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31.

The restaurant and bar at 911 South St. has been renovated by the owners of the .

They plan to focus on beer, meat and utilizing local ingredients, as they do at the 2-year-old Birdsall, but will offer mostly flatbread pizzas. The location, which formerly housed Ciro’s Italian restaurant, is two blocks from John Sharp and Tim Reinke’s Birdsall House, a popular restaurant and bar on Main Street.

Sharp and Reinke have partnered with Bryan Delaney and Damian Collemo to open Gleason’s, named after comedian Jackie Gleason, who once lived nearby in Cortlandt.

Gleason’s is currently open 5 p.m. to midnight Tuesday through Saturday. Lunches and a seven-day-a-week schedule will follow the grand opening.

We would love to point out that although Gleason's has a great beer list, we are shifting focus to also include an extensive wine list as well as a great custom cocktail list. The espresso martinis are incredible. Thanks to the Patch for mentioning us and we look forward to welcoming you all in the days to come. Cheers-Gleasons

Good to see that while to focus claims to be on meat, there are several vegetarian choices on the menu.
