KAMEL RETURNS — Last year, Kamel Jamal sold Angelina’s in Cold Spring to concentrate on his four restaurants in Beacon. Under its new owners, the venture lasted only eight months, closing on Sept. 1, and Jamal stepped in to reclaim the business he founded in 2007. “I’m thrilled to be back,” he said. “We want to get things back to where they were, but with improvements.” (Photo by Michael Turton)
