Isn’t this a pretty picture? I sure wish I took it but I didn’t; it’s the landscape image from Claudio’s FB page. Well done. 

Looks like the Claudio family is going to give it at least one more summer season after all. According to reports, what had been an imminent sale of the oldest same-family-run restaurant in the United States fell through earlier this month. But instead of throwing in the towel or letting their landmark Greenport eatery sit vacant, the Claudio gang (which includes Bill, Jerry and Jan Claudio, and Kathy and Beatrice Tuthill) is ready to re-up and reopen their namesake restaurant in early April.

During its annual opening party, which will be held on Friday, April 7, the 147-year-old restaurant will serve $1.47 glasses of wine and beer. As for the other fooderies in the family business, Claudio’s Clam Bar will open on April 27 and Crabby Jerry’s will serve its first customers of the season on May 25. Read more about it in the Northforker, which broke the story two days after this post appeared on March 14 on Facebook:
