The excitement for summer in Saratoga is gearing up at The Porch, the outdoor pop-up seasonal restaurant opening for lunch and dinner at the Saratoga National Golf Club. 

Mazzone Hospitality is operating at the casual restaurant overlooking the course’s 18th green from May to October this year. 

Guests are invited to enjoy lunch and dinner while taking in the surrounding scenery in a relaxed atmosphere that accommodates 125 with simple wrought iron bistro-style seating and televisions broadcasting sports from the outdoor bar area. Walk-ins are welcome (reservations required for parties of more than eight).

Communal Outdoor Eating

Honoring the communal food gatherings that are a staple of warmer weather, The Porch is debuting a variety of shareable seafood steam pots and tiered platters. 

Prepared by Chef Brandon Johnson (formally of 15 Church and others) the growing menu also includes classic mains; such as the wagyu smash burger, and avocado tartine; as well as creative appetizers and salads made from fresh herbs and produce picked on-site from the micro-farm garden beds prepared by Tracy Kwiecien, a former chef and the founder of the Green Bed Project. 

Dining in the New Age

Adjacent to the Prime fine dining experience, this new venture is just the latest in a series of changes that Mazzone Hospitality has implemented since the pandemic began reshaping the world. 

“The pandemic devastated everybody and everybody in the restaurant business, but we’re stronger than most. When we were down, we didn’t just stop,” said founder Angelo Mazzone. 

In addition to opening The Porch, the 50’ x 100’ tent on the Saratoga National grounds has been replaced by a 60’ x 110’ one that adds another two feet to the ceiling height (raising it to a noble 10 feet). The cobblestone floor inside was also replaced with solid wood. 

Doing it Together

Like the new age of hospitality that we’re entering into, Mazzone has simplified and unified the way they do business. 

They have polished their Mazzone classics catering menu and reexamined their PRIME dining services to ensure they are on par with the brand’s exacting reputation. 

“We’ve made a commitment to aligning services into creating one team with one unifying vision,” said Sean Willcoxon, Mazzone’s Vice President of Catering. 

Symbolized by a refreshed website, and a simplified blue and white logo designed locally by Cox Marketing Solutions, Mazzone Hospitality is looking forward to an exciting summer season.
