A Broome County man acquired the famous Red Robin Diner in downtown Johnson City more than six decades ago.
The restaurant, located at 268 Main Street, closed in January 2021. The property had been on the market for nearly a year with an initial asking price of $269,000.
The site was once owned by the Anagnostakos family of Binghamton. The property records show that it was sold to Taimoor Management Incorporated of Vestal on June 16, for $210,000.
The new owner, who asked not to be identified, said he plans to keep the historic dinner building in its current location at the corner of Main and Broad Streets. The building was moved there from Conklin Street on the south side of Binghamton on June 30, 1959.
Plans call for a “renovation of the old restaurant as a dining venue” after its renovation.
The owner has been living in Broome County for nearly a decade. He said he’s eaten at Red Robin in the past and that he’s a “dinner fan”. He said he was “excited” about the opportunity to have dinner in a Johnson City department with ongoing development projects for Binghamton University and United Health Services.
The new owner said he hopes to begin work on remodeling the restaurant by the end of the year.
