PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. - Daily Voice dropped in at Michael's Old Village Tavern in Pleasantville for the last night for the much-beloved area hot spot before it, and two sister restaurants - McArthur's American Grille on Washington Avenue and Oliver's in Katonah - closed their doors.
It seemed like the entire crowd in the popular family restaurant/bar was buzzing about the news, and no one was happy.
Al three are owned and operated by Doug Crossett of Katonah.
But customers who frequent the place - and a few we spoke with have done so for over 40 years (Michael's opened in 1976) - were sad to hear of the news.
"Michael's is Pleasantville," said one of the regulars interviewed by Daily Voice. "It's a staple."
Check out the video to see Daily Voice talk to patrons of Michael's about why the place was so special to them.
