A popular restaurant and tourist destination in west Kentucky is breaking ground next month on a new building after a destructive fire in February temporarily halted operations. Patti's is an iconic attraction in the lakeside town of Grand Rivers, featuring decorative restaurants and shopping. Marketing Director Ann Martin says the new building will be more handicap accessible.
“With the old building, there were so many different levels. When you built on from 1977 until it burnt, that will be one facet: that we will be more handicap accessible. We’re excited about that," she said.
“It has been a great thing for the community as far as boaters coming in that may just want a quick bite to eat. It has been asked if we would keep it there and I think we’re going to.”
Patti’s has been operating a food truck and may keep it going after the new building is complete. “With the old building, there were so many different levels.
The groundbreaking is on Aug. 2nd at 6 p.m. and will include a picture of the new building.
