The English pub-style restaurant Cyrus Place was set to open on East Main Street in November of last year, but due to undisclosed reasons the doors never opened.
The real estate agent with knowledge of the property said the eatery could open in 2013.
According to Realty Connect USA agent Sahra Mansouri Afati, Cyrus Place owner Cyrus Kabir is still paying rent on the location since starting construction in 2011 and has indicated that the eatery "will open after the new year."
Kabir did not respond to calls or emails before time of publication.
Cyrus Place garnered lots of attention from locals while the restaurant build-out was taking place, many of which were excited to have a different style of cuisine on Main Street to choose from.
"I am looking forward to some good fish and chips. I saw the sign on store front on Smithtown Day," commented Smithtown Patch reader Camille.
