Old location, new flavor

MT. UPTON – Although the outside scenery has not changed all that much, new owners of the Kornerstone Restaurant on Rt. 8 say they’re cooking up something a little different inside.

What was once called The Mint on the corner of Rt. 8 and State Rt. 51 has been remodeled, upgraded and has a new menu to offer. New owner Barb Odell, along with four out of five of her children, opened what they call The Kornerstone restaurant in November of last year.

Odell says everything is homemade including soups, main dishes, and breads. There are daily specials and Thursdays are chicken and biscuit night.

Before opening in November, six months of work was put into getting the restaurant the way the family had imagined it. Previous owners had maintained a renaissance theme and served more costly food, whereas Odell says she wanted to give the restaurant a country feel.

“I wanted to open a restaurant where families could come eat good food and not pay a fortune,” said Odell. “ I also wanted to give it the casual comfortable dining atmosphere so we could get back to the old-fashioned way of things.”
