              The Bayou Cafe in Downtown Albany will receive a full transformation over the next month according to the Times Union. Included in the changes will be a new name for the venue, The Hollow Bar and Kitchen. The new name reportedly comes from the restaurants location at the foot of the Sheridan Hollow neighborhood.
                Updates to the restaurant will also include be a newly renovated, more relaxed atmosphere, as well as kitchen updates to offer a heartier menu. The new focus of the restaurant will be providing a stronger menu to patrons. The new menu is set to premier at Downtown Albany Restaurant Week April 20-26. French onion soup with Guinness, wild mushroom risotto, grass-fed beef short ribs, and creme brulee will be among the items offered during Restaurant Week.
