ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A popular restaurant that burned to the ground earlier this year could be back up and running in just a few months.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Thursday morning as crews work to rebuild Youell's Oyster House on West Walnut Street in Allentown.

The restaurant was gutted by a fire in January.

The owner said the new and improved Youell's will be one story with a mezzanine for private parties. He hopes to have it open sometime in January.
