New Restaurant Loch & Quay Opens in Albany

0 Comments

I know, you’re looking at the title and wondering how to pronounce it, right? I’ll give you the scoop to sound like you’re “in the know” and give you all of the details on this new Albany hotspot.

Loch & Quay (pronounced like Lock and Key) will be having their ribbon cutting later today (June 22) at 11:00 am. Once home to the Plaza Grill and Franklin Tower, 414 Broadway has now been redeveloped with second, third, and fourth-floor apartments (including a video/intercom security system, full-sized washer and dryer, hardwood floors, and more) with the ground floor being Loch & Quay.

Loch and Quay will focus on “diverse lunch menus with items including grass fed beef burgers, chopped salads, soups, sandwiches and other light fare, craft beers, wines, specialty cocktails and coffee.” Their hours will be MondayThursday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., 8 a.m. to midnight on Friday, noon to midnight on Saturday.

The bar itself was built in 1937 by George Spalt & Sons Cabinet Makers shortly after the repeal of prohibition. Various wood in the restaurant was reclaimed from old booths that used to be in the space and the ceilings and ceiling lights are original. What I really love is that the side door and the kitchen doors were procured from the Historic Albany Foundation and the shelf at the back was salvaged from an old Albany-produced Boardman & Gray piano that was found on the building’s second floor.
