The DZ Farm Meet the Chefs Event took place this past Sunday, October 12th, and I had the pleasure of attending on behalf of Saratoga.com.

After reviewing the invitation, I had a good idea of what to expect when I arrived at the farm, but reality blew out my prior expectations. The beauty of the property was completely overwhelming at first, initially making you forget where you were.

Saratoga is well-known for drawing legions of sophisticates from all over the country who flock to the city for its cultural events, fine dining establishments, and shopping boutiques. Everyone knows about the Racetrack, the New York City Ballet at SPAC, and golfing at Saratoga National, but there are a whole host of other events that sophisticates might not be aware of that are right up their alley! To help out well-cultured locals and visitors alike, we've compiled the following list of 7 things sophisticates will love, but may not know about.

Saratoga is recognized for a variety of reasons, from horse races to spas to fine arts and music. Yet, what about a round of applause for 'toga and its vast ethnic cuisine?

This summer, we are fortunate to be hosting the New York City Ballet at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center from July 8th through July 12th. But next summer we are even luckier to host them for a full two weeks! Don't miss either performance!
