The Beehive has changed ownership but stays local. The new owners are siblings Sue Gray, Carol Ganim, and Bill Zipp. The sisters have lived in the Village for five years and their brother is newly arrived.
The solstice on Friday the 20th of June ushered in both summer and dinners at the Beehive. Dining is Friday and Saturday from 5 to 9 pm, reservations suggested. And the day now starts earlier, with breakfasts and lunches from 6 am to 2 pm, Tuesdays to Fridays and brunches from 8 am to 2 pm, Saturday and Sunday. Weekdays, there is an early bird special before 8 am. Patio seating is an option for brunch and dining.
The new chef is Jim Carey from the Delhi Culinary Academy. Menu features international cuisine and hometown fare. Local and organic ingredients are used where possible. Breads are baked on site and desserts are from a local baker who used all local and organic ingredients.
At present the Beehive can not serve beer or wine nor can you bring your own. A second petition drive for amending Franklin Local Law to allow serving of beer and wine with meals may again put the issue before the voter this November.
