The popular Egg's Nest Restaurant in High Falls is making a comeback, after closing in July after the owner retired.

Many foodies in the valley were in a deep funk after hearing that the Egg's Nest was closing up shop. It's menu was very eclectic and the place was a landmark in Ulster County.

According to Hudson Valley One, the place has been purchased and the new owners plan to bring it back with much of the same charm, including the decorations, food and the name will remain. There will be some new menu items and the place has been bought by an actor you might know.

the purchasers are Eric and Cristina Silver. Born in Toronto to American parents and growing up in Woodstock, Eric Silver is an actor who has appeared in the films American Gangster (2007), No Reservations (2007) and Happy (2005).

Silver says the place should reopen in the spring and more details will be coming soon. What do you think about the news? Are you excited for the reopening of the Egg's Nest? Leave your comments on our Facebook page.
