The owners of a local restaurant and deli purchased Howard Johnson’s, and are moving their business, Simply Gourmet, to the HoJo’s building and also start a new restaurant called the ‘Dack Shack in the same building.
Two are still operating. One is attached to a hotel in Bangor, Maine, and the other is in Lake George, a tourist destination 60 miles south of Lake Placid.
The Lake George HoJo’s, which reopened in January after being closed for three years, is the subject of a New York Times feature published just in time to arm travelers hitting the road to lake George, the Adirondacks and beyond.
It’s about an hour and a half between Lake George and Lake Placid – definitely worth the trip to those to whom Ho Jo’s still matters.
We wish the place well.Share
