We here at saratoga living hope you’re still not too full from last weekend’s Corks, Forks & Brews, because this week’s Editor’s Pick is another face-stuffing celebration of food and wine. Saratoga Restaurant Week kicked off on November 5, and will continue all week, through Sunday, November 11, with nearly 50 participating restaurants throughout Saratoga and the surrounding area. All week, select restaurants will be serving up an $10 lunch plates and $20-$30 three-course dinners. Enjoy an affordable but delicious lunch at Esperanto, Falafel Den, Gaffney’s Restaurant, BurgerFi and Pig N’ Whistle on Broadway, among others—or sit back and enjoy a full dinner with an appetizer (or soup), entrée and dessert at Salt & Char, Olde Bryan Inn, Hattie’s Restaurant, Mouzon House, Boca Bistro or Chez Pierre. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
All participating restaurants also function as donation centers for Toys for Toga!, a toy drive sponsored by Discover Saratoga, Druthers Brewing Company and DeCrescente.
