Kick off the summer season with BBBSCR and the greatest culinary talent Saratoga has to offer!

Sample signature dishes from the best local chefs, sip custom-paired cocktails, dance to music, and finish the night watching an Iron Chef style battle in the middle of the room!

Grab your hungriest friends and wander the room as you visit all competitors deciding which dish and which cocktail is your favorite. Once you've gone back two or three (or ten!) times to your top choice, cast your vote for the People's Choice Food and People's Choice Beverage competitions. Have a sweet tooth? We've got you covered! Local pastry chefs will also be competing for the People's Choice Dessert.

End the night watching last year's People's Choice winner Harvey's Restaurant and Bar face off against the 4 year champion, Chef Gulbrandson from Excelsior Springs. Will Harvey's be the ones to finally take down Chef Gulbrandson?!

Last years winner of the Cocktail Competition was Upstate Distilling will battle Fish at 30 Lake! Watch as these two winners shake in up in the battle arena!
