The Otsego County Chamber has moved to office space above Main Street in downtown Oneonta.

The address is Suite 201, 189 Main St., and offices are on the second floor. Entrances are on Main and Dietz streets, Rob Robinson, president and chief executive officer, said Tuesday.

The Chamber had been at Carbon Street for about 19 years, Robinson said, and quarters were becoming cramped. He said the Main Street location is more accessible and better known than Carbon Street, which is near the entrance to Neahwa Park at River and Main streets.

Robinson said he found the Chamber's original incorporation papers from 1907 at the Carbon Street office during the move.

The Chamber has four full-time employees, Robinson said, and its telephone number remains 432-4500. An open house is planned from 2 to 6 p.m. March 12, he said.

Pizza's just part of the menu

Sonny's Pizzeria, a family-owned and -operated restaurant, has opened at Price Chopper Plaza in Oneonta.

Edwin and Debra Grigsby own the restaurant, which is co-owned and managed by Jason Grigsby as "Sonny." The restaurant serves Italian-style pizza, subs, salads and dinners, and it will feature daily specials, including homemade soups from Grigsby family recipes.

Jason Grigsby has been in the restaurant business for 12 years, most of those years at local pizzerias, according to a media release. The pizzeria's first day was Feb. 4.

Sonny's Pizzeria hours are from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and the restaurant is closed Sundays. For more information, call 432-6300.

The plaza is on state Route 7 in the town of Oneonta.

Downtown eatery changes hours

In downtown Oneonta, the Night Kitchen features a menu of hot dogs, hamburgers and other sandwiches and snack foods.

Sheila Serbay said her husband, Michael, oversee the restaurant at 3 Clinton Plaza, on the parking lot side. She said her husband, a licensed plumber, has had a passion for opening a restaurant, and will be running the eatery, which employs four part-timers.

The emphasis is on good food prepared quickly, she said, and the hours are set to reach college students at night and local business workers during lunch time.

``We're really trying to develop a lunch trade,'' she said.

Deliveries are available by calling 432-0666.

Prices range from $2 for a Sabrett hot dog to $6.50 for a hamburger with fries, according to a menu, and fries and gravy and sweet-potato fries are available.

Night Kitchen opened Jan. 10, she said. Recently, hours were changed to be from noon to 9 p.m. Wednesday; noon to 2 a.m. Thursday; noon to 3 a.m. Friday; and 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. Saturday. The store plans undesignated hours on some Sundays during special events.

Downtown developer working without an office

Jeff House, Oneonta city's downtown developer, is on the move since he no longer has an office on Main Street downtown.

House said Wilber National Bank, owner of 250 Main St., wanted to use the space on the second floor, and his office was among those displaced.

House is working out of City Hall and his home. At City Hall, 258 Main St., he uses conference rooms to meet with developers and other visitors, he said, and he does paperwork at home. His contract with the city expires in May, he said, and another office site depends in part on what happens with the job.

House can be reached by cell phone at 643-2726 and e-mail at
