The Venetian Cafe on Route 42 in South Fallsburg was destroyed by a fire overnight.
The fire started at around 3:00AM, and numerous fire departments from around Sullivan County were called to assist in extinguishing the blaze.
At 4:30AM, firefighters were still trying to bring the fire under control.
The restaurant is a dairy establishment, and is frequented by many people. Fire investigators were requested to the scene to determine what caused the blaze.
Catskills Hatzolah was on the scene assisting, but thankfully, there were no injuries reported.
The well-known Bordeaux Steakhouse in Flatbush is the same owner as the Venetian Cafe.

Wasn’t there also a huge fire at the just completed Bais Yaakov building in South Fallsburg?
They are the best people! I wish them much Hatzlacha!
This is really sad. Hopefully they had insurance and will be able to rebuild and reopen.
@Tnewman: The Bais Yaakov building fire was in January. BH they have restarted construction there and the building is going up pretty quickly. Looks like it may be ready by September…
As for this fire – It is very sad… The owners are the sweetest ppl. They work so hard and they have a great product! Hopefully they can recover and get back quick.
