Former J. Dominick's Trattoria spot in Poughkeepsie will be home to a burger joint.

A popular burger restaurant is set to open a second location at the former spot of J. Dominick's Trattoria on Rt. 44 in Poughkeepsie, NY. J. Dominck's was consistently listed as one of the top 5 Italian restaurants for almost a decade, before closing their doors in April of 2023.

Now, almost a year later, the beautiful Dutch Colonial at 779 Dutchess Tpk (Rt. 44) will be empty no more.

A banner 21 Burgers & Wings hangs over the former J. Dominick's sign on Rt 44 in Poughkeepsie. The banner shows the 21 Burgers & Wings logo along with the Hudson Valley Magazine Best of the Hudson Valley logo and reads "Voted Best Burger Joint in the Hudson Valley".

The banner doesn't have any other information as to details about the restaurant moving into the spot, but one would assume by the placement of the sign, that something is up.
