What happened in Saranac?

Does anyone know why/when the Eat 'n Meet Grill and larder closed?
Did the owners open up elsewhere?
Granted, the place was not everyones cup of tea but if you wanted a fabulous meal for a fair price with no frills..it was the place to go..

Casa re-opened a few years ago, seems to be doing a steady business.

Folks were definitely sad to see eat n meet close. The former owner has been "hosted" for a night by some other local places, like Origin Coffee here in SL (great place btw, check it out!)

Haven't been to Casa in a while, but their facebook page has recent reviews. Says they open today at 4:00 PM. Always liked their food, especially the burritos.

I didn't realize they'd re-opened. If you're in Saratoga there are some great Mexican spots. Our favorite is El Mexicano.

Come to think of it, @1985 we stayed at the Newcomb Inn, a roadhouse with great cheap lodging and music.
Any update on this place appreciated.
Is it now the Newcomb House-?

I assume you meant Saranac Lake, not Saranac. I didn't realize Casa del Sol was closed; when I drove by it a couple of days ago, I thought it was just shuttered for the pandemic.

The Newcomb House closed. The Lake Harris House opened recently, I've not eaten there I've heard it's good but a bit pricey. There is also a new cafe open in Newcomb for breakfast and lunch, I have gotten breakfast there and it was quite good.

FWIW, I was told by one of the staff once at the Eat N' Meet that the owner of Jake Moon Cafe in Clarksville, NY (just outside Albany) served as a mentor of sorts to John Vargo (the owner of Eat N' Meet). She said he basically taught John how to cook.
