The journey began with Joseph Bonura Sr. in 1972 with a Perkins Pancake House in Newburgh, NY. In five short years, there were a total of six Perkins that were shortly followed by Mr. B’s, a steak and seafood restaurant. In 1982 the success continued with opening of Anthony’s Pier 9, the largest event facility in the Hudson Valley.
After attending college, Joe’s children began taking principal roles in the company and began building what is now the Bonura Hospitality Group. Joseph Bonura Sr. along with his two sons, Joseph Bonura Jr. and Michael Bonura, and daughter Mary Caster Bonura expanded the business into luxury catering and social events with the addition of The Grandview, The Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel, West Hills Country Club, and Shadows on the Hudson.
In 2014, Joseph Bonura Sr. took over the restaurant property known as Torches on the Hudson with a vision to create a concept that harmoniously married the core values of Bonura Hospitality along with his passion for market fresh fish. After meticulous research and development, Blu Pointe opened in April of 2015. Now led by General Manager Jeffrey Greene and his culinary team, Blu Pointe offers a farm-to-table menu featuring fresh seafood, prime beef, a raw bar station in our cocktail lounge, private dining rooms, local craft beers & spirits, and a riverside outdoor bar.
