A popular Rensselaer restaurant is reopening Saturday under new ownership.

Owner Jimmy Casey sold Casey’s Restaurant on Washington Avenue in November, announcing his retirement.

The new owner, former Rensselaer Police Officer Danny Fumarola, bought the business and agreed to keep the name.

Fumarola isn’t a total stranger. His first job was as a dishwasher at Casey’s East in Troy, owned by Jimmy Casey’s father.

He told NewsChannel 13 this has been a lifelong dream of his.
