A restaurant at the Chappaqua Train Station has been delayed.

The opening of a new restaurant inside the municipally-owned building at the Chappaqua Metro-North station has been delayed as the New Castle Town Board was forced to find a new engineering firm to oversee improvements to the structure.

The board recently withdrew the original bid award to Grossfield Macri PC because it failed to meet town specifications of obtaining proper insurance coverage, said Town Administrator Penelle Paderewski. The bid, which remained at $27,000, was granted to Crowley Engineering at the last town board meeting on July 24.

Engineering work will center around improvements needed to the floor inside the 110-year-old landmark building.

As a result of the change in engineering firms, the expected eight weeks to complete the work, Paderewski said.

It is now anticipated the engineers work will be done by late September.

In May, a group headed by former Flying Pig chef Lesley Sutter, presented plans to the town board for a 60-seat restaurant. At the time, Sutter said there would be similarities between the restaurant, which will be called Sutter’s Track 32 and the Flying Pig, with emphasis on seasonal farm fresh products to use in the preparation of its dishes.

Originally, Sutter had hoped to have operation running by the end of the summer.
