I grew up in Altamont, NY, a small village west of Albany. In my high school and college years I worked weekends at a restaurant called the Altamont Manor, first as a busboy, then as a waiter. It was a formative chowhoundish experience; at the time (early 80s), the restaurant was ahead of its time, certainly for that part of the country. People from around the world knew of it and would make a point to go there if they were within driving distance.
I am going to have lunch soon with the former owners, who have been retired for some time now. Does anyone know of the place and can share some memories?
