Love to see a great local restaurant owned by some great local people being successful and opening up a second location!
Son of Egg, a delicious Korean restaurant in Albany, announced that they will be opening their second location. [CLICK HERE to see my experience with Son of Egg] According to the Times Union, “It is taking over the former Baking You Crazy bakery and cafe, located at 483 Broadway, at the foot of the bridge to the Amtrak station.”
They’re planning to open on April 21, which will also celebrate the second anniversary of their Albany location. “It just got so busy that we didn’t have room to prep more food while we were cooking, because the space is so small. We knew we had to find somewhere bigger,” said Justin Ko, the managing partner of Son of Egg, who owns the restaurant with his mother.
Having been in both locations, this is definitely must bigger than their Albany location and being that close to the train station, with a parking lot in the back, will be great for business. The owners are assuming the hours will be similar to the Albany location (which is staying open): 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday, closed Sunday. If the new location lends to a necessary change in hours, they will change them accordingly.
The main difference between this space and Albany is that they have a full liquor license pending, featuring specialty Korean spirits. The hope is that the bigger space will lead to growth in the already successful menu.
