Old Country Buffet Expected To Be Razed To Make Way For New Restaurant

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The former Old Country Buffet at Berkshire Crossing is expected to be razed.
 
The plaza owners Brixmor Property Group received the OK from the Conservation Commission to take down the restaurant. The plan is to construct a new, 5,500 square-foot restaurant in its place.
 
"The footprint of the proposed restaurant is significantly smaller. The existing restaurant is a square, rectangular shape. The concept is we've located the restaurant in that same building footprint but completely out of the riverfront area," James Scalise of SK Design said.
 
Scalise said there is a tight schedule for the owners to finalize the lease. Which restaurant will take its place was not disclosed on Thursday.
 
Old Country Buffet has been closed for the last two years. It closed with little warning in February 2016 as workers arrived there one morning to find a sign announcing its closure.
 
The restaurant was one of 74 closed by Ovation Brands at the time. Now it appears another company is interested in taking over the location. 
 
What would you like to see there?
