Former Lombardo’s

Here’s the Story

Lombardo’s Restaurant was a cornerstone business in Albany’s South End for nearly 100 years. Its closure left a service and employment gap in an already economically challenged neighborhood, and the legacy of the iconic restaurant was left in question.

Giving Back

Business for Good purchased and began renovations on the historic building in 2021. This transformation is exciting for the locals, who have been waiting intently to see what will fill the hole in the community.

Moving Forward

Hattie’s Restaurants will occupy this building, which will reinvigorate the spirit of the community following the loss of Lombardo’s. When renovations are complete, Hattie’s Restaurants will employ locally and donate all profits to local charities.
