Construction crews were seen today digging in the back of Mory’s, the famed Yale eating club on York Street that has been closed since December 2008. When asked yesterday if renovations had started, Mory’s Board of Governors President Christopher Getman ’64 said: “Just about. Go over and look.”

Though Mory’s renovations have been on hold since the summer, Getman said last month that he was “optimistic” about the restaurant’s projected summer 2010 opening. The planned renovations include a new bar and an outside patio.
