A while back, I posted a list of restaurants I hadn’t been to, looking for suggestions what to hit during our Saratoga Springs staycation. (As an aside, Saratoga is an amazing resort for a staycation. We enjoyed our time so much that we’re considering buying our next batch of points there.)
Anyhow, on the list was Liberty Tree Tavern, which we booked for lunch. Our server was exceptional, and the food was outstanding. (I had the salad, my husband had the pork belly sandwich, and our kiddo had the pasta with no sauce…but hey, it’s vacation.) My husband and I split the ooey gooey toffee cake, and I can see why it is so highly recommended. It is absolutely a dessert to split, but incredibly plate-licking good. So yep, thank you all for the recommendation!
The other restaurants we ate at during our stay were Artist’s Palette (eh, it was okay), Cape May for dinner (yummy as always), The Wave for breakfast (outstanding as always), Trattoria al Forno for breakfast (which I live tweeted on the TouringPlans twitter account if you want the full recap), and Kona Cafe for dinner.
To say that Kona was a disappointment was an understatement. It has now gone from a favorite, must-do restaurant to “not recommended” for my family. The only thing that was much improved is the noise level in the restaurant, which is a lot better thanks to the lobby redo. Aside from that… egads, it has become a 2-star restaurant.
So, got any question about any of the above, let me know.
