A well-known spot for fine dining over the years is slated to re-open this fall in Herkimer County.

Tucker Rosemyer, who previously operated Purple Cow at that very same location, says he is preparing to re-open the now vacant restaurant on West Main Street in Frankfort.

The new name will be '1886 Prime.'

It is also the same building that previously housed Kevin's Bistro.

Rosemyer tells WIBX 950 work is underway to renovate the restaurant, which will include doubling the size of the kitchen,  and adding a pair of double-decker pizza ovens to it.  He also said the menu at 1867 Prime will feature a few popular dishes from another of his prior endeavors, Karma Piano Bar and Restaurant.

Rosemyer's brother operates Slice, a pizzeria at 2007 Genesee Street in South Utica, he said..
