For as long as the pandemic remains unfinished, we must continue to be Stronger Together. That’s absolutely the case with the Saratoga County Chamber and Discover Saratoga.

So as Discover contemplated moving its Chowderfest from February to March 26, we prepared to move our Saratoga County Restaurant Week in the reverse, from March to February. Making this switch would help our local restaurants with cash flow and staffing shortages. 

To make it even better for local restaurants, the Chamber once again modified restaurant week to make it more flexible and affordable than ever. We did this after consulting with several local restaurants. They mentioned that supply chain issues continue to cause seemingly random food price spikes and that menu prices for take out don’t always compensate for the cost of the take-out packaging. 

Given these variables, the Chamber decided it would be free for restaurants to participate. We could do this thanks to support from several sponsors; Driscoll Foods, Saratoga Eagle along with Kona Brewing, and US Foods. Our Saratoga County Restaurant Week began on Thursday, February 17, 2022, and will run to Thursday, February 24, 2022.

This year’s restaurant week includes a dash of Save Our Locals flavor. Like years past, participating restaurants will offer special menus for the week, which patrons will have a chance to enjoy with both takeout and dine-in options. As an added cherry on top, and in Save Our Locals fashion, patrons can submit their receipts via email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Chamber has been spearheading this annual event for the last five years. Most recently, during the height of COVID-19, the Chamber reimagined Restaurant Week as Takeout Month, transforming the traditional event into a month-long opportunity for residents to support local restaurants across the county while also remaining socially distant and staying safe with take-out options.

When we dine and take out locally, we’re directly supporting our neighbors and fellow community members who own restaurants here in Saratoga County. We have a great line-up of restaurants from all over Saratoga County this year with options for all different types of culinary cravings. 

The list includes: 30 Park; Morton’s; Nove; The Merc; Taverna Novo; Front Street Social Club; Wheatfield’s; Prime at Saratoga National; Chez Pierre; Kelly’s Kitchen; The Mouzon House; Brasserie Benelux; Panza’s; Powers Inn and Pub; Bookmakers; Forno Bistro; Boca Bistro; Morrissey’s; Salt & Char; Jacob & Anthony’s; The Wine Bar; Brook Tavern; Cardona’s Market; Circa 21; Basin Grill; Sweet Lou’s Bistro; Nanola; Esperanto’s; Hattie’s; Bowled; Chianti; Spring Street Deli; Diamond Club at Embassy Suites; Mom and Pop’s Rockin Table; Thirsty Owl; The Local Pub; Ribbon Café; Dizzy Chicken; Dunning Street Station; Lake Ridge Restaurant; PJ’s Bar-B-QSA; the Hideaway; Fat Paulie’s; Raffaele’s Italian Deli; and more who signed up this week.

You can help us to help save our local restaurants. Take part in restaurant week. Visit your favorite participating restaurant and/or try a new one. Bring family and friends with you. Send us a receipt to win prizes. Take a photo of you and your group enjoying restaurant week and urge your friends and followers on social media to participate as well. Write a positive review of the restaurants you visit. Tip big to support the staff whether you dine in or do take out. Remember, we’re all in this together. Be kind, positive, and have some fun even if service is a little slow.

Because there is no set price and there are some unique hours when some restaurants are open and offering specials, we strongly urge everyone to check out each menu and to make reservations where allowed. Menus and links can be found on the Chamber’s website at www.saratoga.org when you click Saratoga County Restaurant Week.
