BFG OWNED

Former Lombardo's Restaurant

Albany, New York

FIRST YEAR OF INVESTMENT

2021

The Challenge

Lombardo’s Restaurant was a cornerstone business on lower Madison Ave in Albany for nearly 100 years. Its closure left a service and employment gap in an already economically challenged neighborhood.

The Opportunity

A chance to preserve local history and invigorate Albany’s South End.

The Impact

By renovating the building and installing a business that will employ locally, and return all profits to local charities, we hope this piece of Albany history will be a positive contributor to the South End community for years to come.
