I mentioned in a previous post that I intended to take some friends to The Wine Bar On Broadway in Saratoga Springs. I had never been there but heard some decent things about it and most recently read a very positive review on another blog.
Five of us went and we had a great experience. The food was great and the service equaled the cuisine. In fact many days later we were talking about what a great server we had. One thing I liked about The Wine Bar is that they offered half portions at, stay with me here, half price. Why do I make such a big deal out of that fact? Because so many restaurants seem to offer half portions at what seems close to three-quarters price. What's the sense of ordering a half dish at such an inflated price when for a few more bucks you can order the whole entree and take the rest with you? The Wine Bar seems to understand that logic and I commend them for it.
I don't have all the details from our dinner, but suffice to say it is worth your time and money to go there and the atmosphere is excellent as well. I hope to be back soon.
One more thing - The Wine Bar chef/owner has a blog which you can find here.
