Hudson Valley residents were crushed when The Egg's Nest closed its doors in the summer of 2016, but a young couple has breathed new life into the place while putting their own mark on the place.

Hudson Valley One reports the High Falls eatery closed because original owner Richard Murphy and wife Gillian decided to retire at age 72 after four decades in business. But Murphy wouldn't sell the business to just anyone.

Along comes Eric Silver, an actor who originally grew up in Woodstock, who along with his wife Christina, had been on the hunt for their own restaurant. They had spent time on the west coast before working in New York City for a time. A real estate ad for the Egg's Nest changed their lives.

They came in and cleaned the place up a bit but maintained its quirky charm. The menu will included classic items like cheeseburgers but will also feature vegetarian options. Local micro brews are on tap so think about stopping in for a pint, their soft opening was last weekend.
