FORT LEE, N.J.– Ida Castrianni – the matriarch of Fort Lee's Callahan's – grabbed the oversized scissors Saturday and cut the blue ribbon to officially celebrate the eatery's return to the borough.

"I'm very happy with what we're doing here," she said.

Mayor Mark Sokolich said Callahan's is synonymous with Fort Lee, having been in the borough for 50 years prior to closing.

After a 10-year hiatus, the heir to the hot dog restaurant, Leonard Castrianni, and business partner Greg Pappas, an Edgewater urologis t , opened up shop on Anderson Avenue.

"We're very happy to welcome you back," said Hope Rothenberg, executive director of the Fort Lee Regional Chamber of Commerce.
