On Jan. 24 seating was limited at the Newburgh location as construction continued.
In February, the owners let customers know the bar area was closed at the Newburgh location because it was under renovation.
"Don’t worry, we’re still open offering beer and wine table side along with our regular menu and specials. Take out is also available online or by phone. We appreciate your patience and continued support during this time and cannot wait to show you the final look," owners wrote on Facebook.

Cosimo's Brick Oven in Newburgh Closed
In late February, the owners had to close the entire Newburgh location to complete the renovation.
"Our Newburgh location, Cosimo’s on Union, will close for the final stage of renovations. We cannot thank you enough for your patience and unwavering support of everything we do! It means the world to us and we know you’re going to love the work we are doing to make your experience with us better than ever! We cannot wait to share this dreamy transformation with you," the owners wrote.
A reopening date was not given. Weeks passed with no updates as Newburgh residents wondered when they could return to their favorite local eatery.
Almost a month after closing the Newburgh location, the owners provided an update but still didn't give a reopening date.
"Thank you to all who have reached out regarding the reopening of our Newburgh location," the Owners said. "We are hard at work to ensure that we re-open and re-welcome you all into our beautiful new space as quickly as possible!"
The wait finally ended one day after Easter, almost two months after closing.
