'Entourage' Stars Help Launch NY Restaurant

Two stars of the HBO series “Entourage” are backing the new owners of a popular restaurant next door to a racetrack in eastern New York.

Kevin Connolly, who plays Eric “E’’ Murphy on “Entourage,” and Kevin Dillon, who portrays Johnny “Drama” Chase, are among the investors in Siro’s in Saratoga Springs.

Both actors are from New York.

Mortgage banker Keith Kantrowitz said Monday that his group bought the restaurant. He says the investors all have personal relationships with at least one of the owners.

The restaurant had been purchased from a group that had owned it since the early 1980s. A sale price wasn’t disclosed.
