Nolan’s restaurant to reopen Monday in Canandaigua

As work progressed at the restaurant site on South Main Street throughout the spring and summer, it seems as if a day hadn’t gone by when Mayor Ellen Polimeni wasn’t asked, “When is Nolan’s going to open?”

The answer now is definite, with a scheduled opening to the public of Monday, Oct. 15. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned Friday, and soft opening for invite-only VIPs planned over the weekend.

The restaurant on South Main Street was destroyed by fire July 13, 2017, and its absence felt by many ever since.

“Everyone is anxious to get inside,” Polimeni said. “I’m looking forward to it.”

The new 6,200-square-foot restaurant features two main dining areas — one with a cathedral ceiling and 15-foot stone fireplace — and bar.

A private event room can hold 70 people for showers, holiday parties and the like, and a 1,200-square-foot deck includes a fireplace.

The menu is expected to be what diners at the upscale casual restaurant have come to expect since it opened at its lakeside location — certified Angus beef, fresh seafood and pasta dishes. The restaurant also prepares fresh breads and desserts as well as provides catering services.

Polimeni said there are so many positive aspects to the reopening, from jobs created to the addition of one more restaurant to the city’s dining scene.
