Yes, unfortunately it’s true. The Montcalm opened its doors in 1956 and will close today, 57 years after opening. The Montcalm, still owned and operated by the family that opened its doors will be the site of a new shopping plaza. Dean will not be leaving the restaurant business, I am told. He is planning on opening another restaurant in the area. When I hear the wheres and whens, you’ll be the first to know!
I first dined at the Montcalm 36 years ago this month and I will miss it. Does anyone remember the Montcalm North? We dined there 36 years ago too. A sad day in Lake George. There’s still time for a late lunch or dinner!
But, I’ll be on the lookout for the wheres and whens for you!
