Funk ‘N Waffles to close original location on the SU Hill

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - After 10 years in business, Funk ‘N Waffles is closing its original location on the SU Hill.

In a post on its Facebook page, the restaurant says it was left no choice after the Syracuse Planning Commission approved a developer's plans to demolish the building behind Marshall Street for an eight-story apartment and retail complex.

The restaurant said, in part:

“The original Funk 'n Waffles location gave us all a place to feel at home. It was the site of first dates, graduation celebrations, comedians and musicians' first time with an audience, children growing up, open mic night, Sunday brunch with friends, and many other completely routine and sometimes totally extraordinary moments. Thank you to all of our customers throughout the years. We had the pleasure of serving up celebrities as they came to town, and musicians of all skill sets took the stage. We opened our doors wide in January of 2007, prepared to receive whatever and whomever would decide to come inside and create with us.”

Funk ‘N Waffles will close this Wednesday after an open mic night.

Their location in Armory Square will remain open.
