Beverly’s, one of Saratoga Springs’ much-beloved restaurants, has reopened as Beverly’s Eatery at 256 Milton Ave. in Ballston Spa. Owner and chef Michael Bowman, son of original founder Beverly Reedy, will serve the same breakfast and lunch menu that locals have missed since January 2012, when the first Beverly’s closed after nearly 23 years in business.
The Beverly’s Eatery Facebook page describes the restaurant as serving “memorable and delicious home-cooked food made in-house from old family recipes with natural and local ingredients.”
“We’re like an upscale diner,” Bowman said. “People who loved the original Beverly’s told us they missed the restaurant; they missed the menu. They said no one filled our shoes. So I stepped up to the plate—pun intended.”
Reedy opened her business at 47 Phila Street in 1989, remaining there until losing her lease last year. The family searched for a new space until finding the former Bear’s Café in Ballston Spa.
“We like being in Ballston Spa,” Bowman said. “It’s so laid-back, even here on the main drag.”
The new restaurant has a similar fun atmosphere as the Saratoga Springs Beverly’s, he said.
Hours are 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. The telephone number there is 885-2848.
