ADDED December 2010: Click here to read about my impressions of Jacob and Anthony's after I had dinner there.
Jacob & Anthony's American Grille, which was previously set to open in 2009, has a web site up and running which announces a May 2010 opening and also has a link for on line employment applications. The restaurant, which will be run by the Marrello family of Bellini's Restaurants and the Houlihan's chain restaurant location in Crossgates Mall, will be located at 38 High Rock in the Hampton Inn & Suites. The web site also has what could be described as draft menu with both restaurant and catering options. Their Facebook page projects a degree of confidence by proclaiming "J&A's will be rooted in American and family traditions. With a look that is pure Americana and dishes featuring classic recipes with a modern presentation, we hold this truth to be self-evident: not all menus are created equal." Joe Marrello, in an article in the Spotlight News, said a grand opening of the Saratoga restaurant will likely benefit the Epilepsy Foundation and Saratoga Bridges.
Good economy or bad, the Saratoga Springs restaurant scene is always on the move and never dull! I will be happy to see this restaurant open and hopefully it will be a sign of good things to come for the Saratoga Springs business community.
