UPPER WEST SIDE — After a four-alarm fire tore through Jacob's Pickles this past winter, the restaurant will finally reopen for dinner service this Thursday.
The restaurant, located on Broadway at 84th Street, will continue to serve its signature comfort food dishes such as Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese and fried pickles, with some new additions. According to Eater, which first reported the reopening, Jacob's Pickles is also working on a basement bar that will open by the end of the year.
The February fire caused severe interior water damage and took seven months for the restaurant's owner, Jacob Hadjigeorgis, to repair. During the renovations, the restaurant also raised more than $14,000 for the displaced tenants of the building through a GoFundMe campaign and a fundraiser event they hosted in April.
According to Gothamist, the new Jacob's Pickles will offer twists on their original menu items, including a Kale Nicoise salad with spiced shrimp.
Maison Pickle, Hadjigeorgis' sister restaurant, which shouldered customer demand during the renovations, will also be debuting its fall brunch menu soon.
