Kittle House Opening a Second Restaurant in Tarrytown; a Wine Shop and Market May Follow


It was easy to miss, but far along into the Sunday 1A story on how the rental market may revive development along the waterfront was a very nice little piece of food news: Crabtree’s Kittle House, the classic restaurant in Chappaqua with a 70,000-bottle wine cellar, will be opening a second location at the Hudson Harbors complex in Tarrytown.

From reporter Andrew Klappholz’s story:

Recent improvements to the Tarrytown train station, scenic views of the Hudson and commitments from popular businesses — Lighthouse Ice Cream Kompany is already open there, and the Kittle House restaurant in Chappaqua soon will add a second location there — to open within the complex have helped developer National Resources buck the sluggish trend, said Paul Janos, a former Tarrytown mayor and spokesman for the developer.

I spoke to Janos and to Glenn Vogt, a managing partner at Kittle House about this development. While the lease has not yet been signed, both are confident it will be.

“The lawyers are setting up the date to sign the lease — it’s a done deal,” Janos told me. He also told me that a market and a wine shop are in the works.

Glenn Vogt wouldn’t elaborate on the plans, except to say:  “We are in the process of finalizing the negotiations and are very excited about the plans for the project and being a part of the beautiful Hudson Harbor community.”

Pretty exciting stuff! I’ll report more as I get information.
