Bristol Harbour Resort plans to shutter the popular Restaurant at Bristol Harbour.
Situated on the eastern shore of Canandaigua Lake, the resort includes a private 18-hole golf course, a 31-room boutique hotel, a marina and event spaces.
Closed for the winter since October, the restaurant is to be repurposed to add to the resort’s 4,475-square-foot wedding venue, resort owners Todd and Laura Cook advised patrons in a letter recently posted on Bristol Harbour’s website.
Food and drinks will be available for Bristol Harbour patrons during the summer season at the resort’s café, the post states. The resort also plans in June to begin a cocktail hour, twice a week, at which a selection of chef’s hors d’oeuvres will be served.
The Cooks, who purchased the resort in 2016, also are developers of the Everwilde Inn and Spa, a proposed year-around resort with restaurant, 50-room hotel, banquet rooms, and spa and fitness facility planned to rise on a now-vacant 45.7-acre site across Seneca Pointe Road from Bristol Harbour.
In development since 2014, Everwilde awaits approvals from state and local agencies including the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation and the Town of South Bristol.
In their post announcing the Restaurant at Bristol Harbour shutdown, the Cooks urge Bristol Harbour patrons to contact the South Bristol Town Board to urge it to green light the Everwilde project.
