Olmstedville eatery rises from the ashes, looks to the future

OLMSTEDVILLE Following a devastating kitchen fire last summer that closed the Lucky Leprechaun Restaurant for several months, owners Scott and Teresa Morrison have rebuilt and reopened with new and improved facilities. We would like to thank everyone who helped and gave words of encouragement while we went through the remodel. Scott Morrison said. Now fully renovated, and with enhanced kitchen facilities, it is back in operation serving light fare, pizza, and full dinners. While we rebuilt our professionally designed state of the art stainless steel kitchen, we took time to revamp our menu, Morrison said. We've added things like Country Fried Steak, roasted Pork Loin, Signature Desserts and much more. In addition, Morrison said, theyve added a couple new pizzas to their menu including the Loaded Potato, which is a baked potato pizza complete with sour cream; and the Twister, which is a bleu cheese, chicken, bacon and pepper jack cheese pizza. We have also entered four pizzas in the International Pizza Expo coming up on April 1st in Las Vegas, Morrison added. The restaurant is located in a historic 1860s building at the intersection of Church Road and Olmstedville Road in the hamlet of Olmstedville, better known as the Olmstedville 4-Corners. The Morrisons were greeted with a ceremonial ribbon cutting by officers of the Gore Mountain Region/Town of Johnsburg Chamber of Commerce upon the reopening of the Lucky Leprechaun Restaurant following its renovation. The restaurant had been closed following a fire last summer. The restaurant will be serving the public from 4 to 9 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. The cuisine is eclectic, ranging from Cajun specialties to Italian dishes, steaks to seafood, and of course, breakfast dishes on Sundays. Breads are all home baked. If a recent Sunday is any indication, the Morrisons are back on track. Sunday breakfast was a huge success with our new Crab Cake Eggs Benedict being the top seller, the crab cakes replace the ham in a traditional Eggs Benedict, Morrison said. With our new hours we now accept private parties and groups at lunch and dinner on days we are not open, and have already reserved several events.
