As you all know, I have been on the road with my daughter visiting colleges. During our travels we have been very lucky and have stumbled upon some culinary gems.
I don’t know about you, but I love to eat small or share big plates with someone. After visiting Skidmore College, we decided to go into town for a bite before we leave to visit the next college.
If you have never been to Saratoga Springs, I suggest next time you are close enough – stop by and take a gander.
I asked everyone for recommendation – Director of Admissions, tour guides, hotel concierge . . . whomever I spoke to!
On this particular day, the general consensus was that “Ravenous” is the place to have a wonderful lunch — consistent, convenient and they specialize in crepes!
We searched and found this tiny crepe maker – once I looked at the menu, I knew we were in for a great lunch – some of the selections available:
• Upper West Sider, which features Nova Scotia Salmon
• Taj Mahal features Indian Curry
• Chile con crepe – yeah you get the idea
Not only do they serve savory crepes, they also make Belgian Pommes Frites. Have you ever had these? I will admit, they are one of my weaknesses and here they serve it with your choice of 12 dipping sauces . . . Culinary Heaven!
And, they also make sweet crepes filled with all sorts of ingredients like Nutella, lemon curd, caramel and fresh fruits and with names like Strawberry Fields, Banana-Fo-Phana, and Crepe Antoinette.
It makes dessert even more fun —
The wait staff are knowledgeable about all their products and serve you with a smile on their face.
By the time you finish reading their clever menu, you are “Ravenous!”
