Arts District/Beekman Street Dining
These restaurants are all in very close walking distance to the apartment!
5 minute walk! This truly is a local gem... nicer pub style dining with a great selection of craft beers. Brunch (Boozy Brunch is also an option here) is very popular and I would suggest getting there before 10:30/11am to avoid a wait. Menu recommendations: Cannot go wrong with the Poutine. My favorite thing about this restaurant is that they can make any salad into a wrap!!

Italian restaurant right around the corner from the apartment. Wood Fired Pizza is definitely the way to go here!! They do have good pasta dishes and entrees but we personally think they have some of the best pizza in town.

Breweries in the Area
Walking distance, right downtown off of Broadway, the upstairs is actually a nice café/coffee shop and the downstairs is a spacious brewery with indoor & outdoor seating. They have a great selection of craft beers. As far as the menu goes... you cannot go wrong with the wings or Detroit style pizza!

15-20 minute drive... This is my favorite brewery around!! They change up their tap list often but they always have a great selection of IPA’s and at least one stout on tap.

Our Favorite Restaurants
Let me start off by saying there are SO many fantastic restaurants in Saratoga. Here are some of our personal favorites!
The menu is always changing but their Parker Rolls and Fried Chicken Deviled Eggs are usually always on the menu (seriously they are the best rolls we’ve ever had). They also have a fantastic cocktail list. Reservation is preferred but occasionally can walk in and be seated relatively soon.

A classic in Saratoga Springs! They have amazing Mac & Cheese and the beer cheese dip appetizer is to die for! Great beer list as well. They do not take reservations but sometimes you can join a waitlist on yelp.

No reservations and always a wait (but worth it!!) Cantina is my personal favorite... Mexican cuisine with great margaritas (my favorite is the “skinny marg”). Popular menu items are the wings, Mexican street corn, Taco salad (seriously so good...) and the tacos. Honestly though, you cannot go wrong here. They also opened up a rooftop bar... just check the hours before you go!

This is a very popular spot on Saratoga Lake with great views of the lake! They do not take reservations but they have a nice “beach” area where you can enjoy a drink or appetizer while you wait for your table. Highly recommend the Poke Bowl & Lobster Roll (in season).
