The Adirondacks & the Lake Champlain
Valley of Upstate New York & Vermont have long been known for their truly
unique & varied cuisine ranging from fresh caught native brook trout cooked
over an open campfire to world class dining at five star resorts.
In the internationally acclaimed City of Saratoga Springs, diners can choose from
over fifty exciting restaurants with menus featuring everything from spicy Mexican
foods to hearty homecooked
meals. If romantic candle light dining in a Great Camp setting appeals to you,

have the opportunity to sample such native culinary delights as smoked
roast duck, and fresh rainbow trout.
