Plans are underway to bring Heartland Brewery—the popular New York City eatery and pub—to Port Chester’s historic 1890 train station building, MTA officials announced today.
Although the brewery has traditionally been a lunch and dinner place, it will also be open in the morning for coffee.
“It is exciting that Heartland Brewery has selected Port Chester for their first expansion location outside of New York City,” Port Chester Mayor Dennis G. Pilla said in a statement today.
Heartland plans to spend $1.2 million to renovate the 5,630-square-foot brick building, which will include an outdoor garden.
“As a tribute to the locale, the restaurant will be named Port Chester Hall,” said Jon Bloostein, founder and CEO of Heartland Brewery. “It will offer a diverse menu and a full bar featuring a special selection of beers locally brewed in New York State.” Heartland hopes to start construction in January and open the restaurant in June 2013.
