I am not a great fan of restaurant weeks, but they can on occasion be a nice chance to try a new place. Schenectady is having one next week – the details are here:
I am a big fan of Cella Bistro, and I think Parisi’s, Glen Sanders and the Stockade Inn also offer top-notch food. The Parker Inn menu looks good but my understanding is that they have a very limited kitchen, so I am leery of the execution. I have only ever had drinks and nibbles there. Taj Mahal offers tasty, generic Indian, though it is quite inexpensive normally, so the deal is not so great. Same w/ Morrette’s (known for its steak sandwiches,) Moon and River (vegetarian) and Chez Daisie (crepes.) Clinton’s Ditch, Pinhead Susan’s, Union Inn and Katie O’Byrnes offer pretty standard but tasty enough bar food generally, if you’re in the mood for that sort of thing. We went to Manhattan Exchange once w/ friends and were underwhelmed. The others are new to me.
