Lovell Street Grill Opens for Food, Family, Sports in Somers

SOMERS, N.Y. – If you have been waiting for Lincolndale’s former Michael’s Tavern to reopen, the wait is almost over. The Lovell Street Grill and Ale House will have its grand opening on Monday, March 5 on Lovell Street in Somers.

“It’s going to be a fun, casual, family-style restaurant, where you can have a couple of pints and watch the game,” said Nick DeVito, the general manager. “We’ve got nine high definition flat-screen TVs with sports packages and a game room with six arcades games for the kids. And there are monitors in the dining room so you can keep an eye on the kids.”

“Our logo is ‘Food, Family, Sports and Spirits,” added Cathy Carducci, director of development.

“We’ll have 14 draft beers, half traditional brews and half from independent breweries like Captain Lawrence and IPA Kelso of Brooklyn,” said DeVito. “Entrees are priced at $20 and less. And we’ll have happy hour specials.”

“We’re also going to have sports memorabilia on consignment,” DeVito continued. “Like game-worn autographed jerseys, helmets, balls, bats, autographed hockey sticks, Yankees, Mets, Jets, Giants, Rangers and Knicks. We’ve got a photo of Don Larsen and Yogi Berra, taken the day Larsen pitched the perfect game in 1955. Everything is available for sale.”

The owner of the Lovell Street Grill is Somers resident Scott Pires. “I’ve worked in every restaurant position,” said Pires. “I started when I was 12. Our neighbors owned Vinny’s in Pleasantville. They needed a dishwasher.” Later on he worked at Michael’s in Pleasantville, “for a mere 17 years,” he said. He ended up as a part owner. He also owned American Pie, a pizzeria and deli in Mamaroneck.

Pires and his wife, Theresa, are partners in the new enterprise. “We really wanted to open something in our own town,” he explained. “We love the community. We wanted to be close to home.”

The chef is Joe D’Agostino, formerly of the Pound Ridge Country Club. “Everything is fresh and homemade,” said Pires. “Joe even makes his own mozzarella. I was drawn to him by his passion for food.

“When we renovated, we used carpenters and plumbers from Somers. Our staff is mostly from Somers, too. I want this to be a place to relax in. I tell my staff, ‘You’re inviting people into your living room.’”

The Lovell Street Grill and Ale House will serve food Mondays through Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. The bar will close at a later hour.
