We're traveling from Montreal to the Hudson Valley and we have a stopover on a Friday night in Albany, NY. We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express - Western Ave. SUNY Area, and we are looking for a nearby restaurant (for dinner).
I have read a lot of threads on the board and it looks like my best bets are either Mangia or Provence in the Stuyvesant Plaza. Any other ideas? Which one of those two is your favorite? Bonus points if you have a recommendation on the menu!
I'm also looking for a place to have dinner near Salisbury Mills, NY on Saturday night if you have any recommendations.
