KPOT coming to Wappinger, Newburgh; see what restaurant offers

The Mid Hudson Valley will soon have a new all-you-can-eat option, with a unique concept and multiple locations.

KPOT, a small chain of Korean barbecue and Asian hot pot cooking restaurants, has plans to open in Wappinger Plaza on Route 9 and the Newburgh Mall on Route 300. 

In Wappinger, KPOT will become the latest restaurant to fill a storefront that for years housed Hometown Buffet and, up until roughly a year ago, Chen Young chinese buffet. Scott Meshil, of Royal Properties retail brokerage company, confirmed KPOT signed a lease on the spot recently, and the company is in the process of designing the interior to apply for the proper permits from the town.

Representatives from the Newburgh Mall could not immediately specify where KPOT will go in its facility, though its address is listed on KPOT’s site. Representatives from KPOT also did not return inquiries.
