What's New in Albany, Schenectady & Troy

Druthers in Schenectady, New Burger Joints, and More Coming to the Capital Region

The Capital Region is getting a bunch of new restaurants in early 2017!

From new burger and fast casual restaurants to a third location of the area's favorite brewing company, Capital Region foodies should get excited for this spring and summer. 


Cafe Wasabi Opening in Crossgates Mall

Cafe Wasabi will be opening their first Capital Region location on the lower level of Crossgates Mall near Lord & Taylor in 2017. Their menu features traditional Japanese dishes, including sushi, sashimi, oden, udon, ramen, yakisoba, tonkatsu, bento, tempura, and gyoza.

Druthers Brewing Company in Schenectady

This Capital Region favorite will be opening their third restaurant in the new Mohawk Harbor mixed-use development near the casino in Schenectady. Their space in The Riverhouse will include an outdoor beer garden and feature the brewer's excellent beer and food menu that have made the company's restaurants favorites in Albany and Saratoga Springs.

Elevation Burger Open in Latham

The first Elevation Burger in the Capital Region has opened in Latham. The Falls Church, VA-based company is a fast-causal chain serving American classics. The chain focuses on "making the world a better place one bite at a time," and their menu includes grass-fed, free-range beef, organic produce, and healthy alternatives. 

Kraze Burgers Opening Soon in Crossgates Mall

Crossgates will be getting another new eatery in early 2017. The premium burger chain Kraze Burgers will be opening on the lower level near Lord & Taylor. 100% hormone free, grain-fed, top-quality beef patties are served on fresh baked buns. Other menu items include veggie burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, and salads.

Tara Kitchen Opens Second Location

The Schenectady Moroccan restaurant Tara Kitchen is expanding to another location in Troy. On the ground floor of the River Street Lofts, the Moroccan restaurant will be taking over the space formerly occupied by Infinity Cafe. Tara Kitchen is one of the few Moroccan restaurants in the area.
