Rivers Casino continues restaurant reopenings


SCHENECTADY — As Rivers Casino & Resort looks toward later hours next week after the 11 p.m. curfew on casinos is  lifted by the state, it is reopening another of its dining options.

Mian, the pan-Asian concept at Rivers, will reopen Friday after being closed since the pandemic began last March. Hour will be 4 to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 4 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday, closed Wednesday and Thursday.

Three of its Rivers siblings have been serving customers since casinos were allowed by the state to reopen in September. Dukes Chophouse offers dinner in its dining room Wednesday through Sunday and has a bar menu available daily, the diner-style Flipt is open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, as is Villa Italia for cafe fare. The casino’s pizza concept, Johnny’s To-Go, and Van Slyck’s bar remain closed. Food service at the casino is managed by the Mallozzi Group, which owns the original Villa Italia, founded in 1968, and the Italian restaurant Johnny’s, both downtown in the Electric City.

The state announced two weeks ago that as of Monday it would lift the 11 p.m. mandated closing time for casinos, cinemas, bowling alleys and gyms. Rivers plans to expand its hours next week, a spokesman said, but details are not yet finalized.

Because the state still requires restaurants to close at 11 p.m., dining options will be unavailable later despite the casino being open, the spokesman said. The governor’s office said it is reviewing restaurant regulations and the midnight curfew for catered events. An announcement about extending them is expected in mid-April.
