The Garden Bar at Sperry's restaurant (30-1/2 Caroline St.), which is now under new ownership, will open tonight at 5 to kick off the holiday weekend.
The bar will be open Fridays through Sundays from 5 p.m., and a grand opening party is planned for 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 14. Look for complimentary hors d'oeuvres, champagne and a Sperry's signature cocktail.
Dinner service will begin that evening at 7 p.m., after the opening party; by reservation. The menu will feature signature dishes from former owner Ridge Qua's tenure — house pate, Sperry's crab cakes, wasabi shrimp, malt Dover sole, Sperry's jambalaya, pasta bolognese — and new items created by new executive chef, Dale Miller, a certified master chef.
Sperry’s opened in the 1930s and has been a family-owned business for about 25 years.
Colin and Christel MacLean, who own the Circus Cafe, have taken over the business as part of a group of investors that includes Saratoga Springs Mayor Scott Johnson.
