Construction finally begun
Aug 24, 2009 | Written by Anupa Mueller
We got our official Permit today from the Building Department of Tarrytown. This gives us the green signal to begin construction. We still have a ways to go before we close but this puts us on our way. First, we will clean up the store next door, put in a new restroom, install an additional HVAC unit, explore drop ceilings, work on the basement, do electrical wiring, put in plumbing.....you get the idea. We've taken down the separating wall and put up a false wall so we can still be open. Please bear with us. It is either this or close down! For those of you who have visited our Tea Room, you will see some interesting changes when we're done - one is a banquette against the wall. This will finally allow us to put tables together to expand our seats near the window. It is a familiar refrain in any restaurant. It doesn't matter how many tables are free, customers always want the window table, even if they have to wait for it to be cleaned! I selected the fabric for the banquette today - must say that was fun. More posts to follow as construction gets under way.
