Longtime Broome County restauranteur Jim McCoy is looking forward to developing the menu for the new eatery he plans to launch in Endicott's Union District in a few weeks.

McCoy shut down two of his restaurants - Number 5 in Binghamton and Lampy's in Endicott - in late May.

A glimpse inside the future McCoy's Chophouse was posted on the restaurant's Facebook page.

McCoy's Chophouse is being developed at the former Lampy's site on West Main Street.

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, McCoy set June 1 as an optimistic target date to open the new restaurant. Renovation work has taken longer than expected.

McCoy on Wednesday told WNBF News he hopes kitchen equipment can be installed starting next week. He said the opening could come in "three weeks - if we're lucky."

With renovation work nearing completion, McCoy now is prepared to turn his attention to finalizing what will be offered to diners. He envisions the place as "a delicious mix of Number 5 and Lampy's."
