Ridge Tea & Spice Shop now open in New Paltz

New Paltz restaurant owner to build shed for storage of outdoor furniture

New Paltz restaurant owner to build shed for storage of outdoor furniture

Garvan McCloskey, owner of Garvan’s Gastropub on Huguenot Street, is looking to make some changes to settle in for the outdoor dining that could be becoming the norm. McCloskey would like to erect a 12-by-10-foot shed outside that will be used for storing of furniture and other items so that servers don’t always need to walk all the way back inside to get everything ready for the next diners. The application also includes a request to extend the right to have outdoor dining that came as an emergency pandemic authorization, and also a proposal to build a 256-square-foot deck for Maggie Mae’s, the eatery that has replaced Upstairs on 9 at the site.
