SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — What a time to open a restaurant.

With their industry still heavily impacted by limitations imposed to control the spread of COVID-19, a Guilderland couple are making final preparations to open the doors to their new establishment in downtown Schenectady.

The Nest occupies the two-story storefront of the old Schenectady Railway headquarters at 512 State St., formerly home to Slidin’ Dirty. Owners Devin and Kaytrin Ziemann will begin serving the public Oct. 16.

The timing is far from ideal, given how hard the restaurant industry has been hit this year, but the Ziemanns have been able to keep their two Albany restaurants — Crave and Cuckoo’s Nest — running and profitable with a nearly full staff all through the pandemic and think they can make this one fly as well.
