Wheatfields is a unique fresh pasta restaurant. A variety of fresh pasta products are made daily in their own pasta lab. The pasta lab is located in the front of the restaurant where you can often observe the pasta being made. The sauces and bread are also made fresh daily at Wheatfields.
This place is busy and family friendly. The serivce is prompt and polite.
Favorite Dish: Scrimp Scampi, or Grilled Chicken with Angel Hair You just can not beat the taste of freshness in the pasta and sauces.
Set in the hotel bar area the feeling is casual yet classy. My husband ordered a crab cake meal, which was terrific. I had a turkey sandwich which was also good.
Favorite Dish: The crab cake which I tasted, not too spicy and just plain crabby.
I had done some research on Saratoga Springs via the web before we left. I found a few bakerys but Mrs. London's had such a great reputation, we couldn't pass it up for a good breakfast. The small space was crammed full(even in the snow) but we managed to grab a seat.
Favorite Dish: We shared a ham and cheese croque and some granola, fresh berries and yogurt. Both were recommended by Mrs. London herself! In addition we had fresh squeezed orange juice and bought a loaf of their famous bread to bring home.
On our way out of the Auto Museum in Saratoga Springs State Park, we decided to take a tip from the Food Channel's Rachel Ray and her "$40 a day" show and "ask a local" for some advice on the best place to grab some lunch. We asked the museum curator who directed us to the Olde Bryan Inn on Maple Street. It was a bitterly cold snowy day and we were lucky enough to be given the best seat in the house-right next to the fireplace!. The resturant is an old historical building with rustic flare. It has even been rumored to be haunted! Read the stories on the website for the full tale.
Favorite Dish: We had some wonderful drinks to warm up, I got a hot cocoa with Bailey's and Chambord, Lou got a Hot Cider with Butterscotch Schnapps. Yummy! Our dinner consisted of a couple great sandwiches. For Lou a Prime Rib with Onion Soup, for me the complete Turkey Dinner Sandwich. Both were out of this world!
Breakfast at the Race Track durning the thoroughbred racing season.
Get there early an really enjoy the morning workouts by some of the best thoroughbred horses in the country. Some mornings there will be a Saratoga Mist (Fog) hanging over the track and you can hear the horses as they head for home and come bursting out of the fog and into sight.
Favorite Dish: Anything pertaining to breakfast. Eggs, bacon, ham,pancakes,etc.,etc., but be prepared for the check. It's not cheap.
Actually there are quite a few . . . reasonably priced -- although you can find the hoity-toity ones that apparently think they're serving a Manhattan crowd. Again, go to the Visitor's Center and get the guide -- with restaurants broken down by location. Many downtown are located on either Caroline or Phila.
I think we had our best meal at Sperry's -- can't remember now if it's on Caroline or Phila. Old-fashioned bar/restaurant that serves lunch and dinner -- AND, you can smoke! I had an excellent crabcake(s) appetizer which was more like a small mea with a salad and pilaf. The dessert selection was unusual -- and unusually good . . . we loved the warm gingerbread ala mode. Definitely worth a return . . .
Sperry's -- as well as all the others -- makes provision for smokers . . . crucial in my determination of a good restaurant . . . especially since I daily suffer under the second-hand smoke prissiness which runs rampant in NYC (. . . except, of course, if you're rich or famous -- then, smoking laws be damned)
Favorite Dish: . . . we had other good meals at the Inn at Saratoga, Saratoga Brewing Co., the Saratoga Restaurant/Diner (out toward the Spa SP), Professor Moriarity's, Lillian's, and Bookmakers (at the Holiday Inn) . . . we also tried Porecca's -- which is touted for its ribs, which were unfortunately too spicy for my sweetie -- but, it's a decent quiet tavern (and the Italian food looked good -- and the chicken finger appetizer was good).
