Some uplifting news for fans of Morette's restaurant in Schenectady.

After nearly 70 years in business, they closed after the retiring owners failed to sell it.  But now, a buyer has emerged: Frank and Kathleen Martin of Scotia, who own a nearby used car lot on Erie Boulevard.

The Gazette reports the Martins will purchase the rights to Morette's name, recipes, and menu, and hope to once again offer steak sandwiches in September.
