Jillian’s to Close; Bayou Cafe to Be Sold
“The party never stops at Jillian’s of Albany.”
At least that’s what is says on Jillian’s website.
But the fact is that the party will indeed be over at the end of business on Saturday night (August 11), when owner Ralph Spillinger shutters the doors for good.
Spillenger had put the business on the block back in June with a $1.6 million asking price. But alas, there have been no takers.
Spillenger also plans on selling the Bayou Cafe (just down North Pearl Street from Jillian’s) – leaving downtown Albany behind to concentrate solely on the Bayou Cafe in Glenville, which he also owns.
