Nick Adie and Bill Donovan, owners of Harvey’s
and Maestro’s restaurants in Saratoga
Springs, have partnered with their executive
chef, Danny Petrosino, to form Symphony
“This new entity is a natural progression
of our efforts to provide for Saratoga’s
dining and event needs,” said Adie.
“On the one hand we offer fine dining at
Maestro’s and casual dining at Harvey’s on the
other. Now, we can provide catering service
to our guests who are hosting larger parties.”
Maestro’s, 353 Broadway, recently introduced
its new banquet space christened the
Empire Room. This 2,000-square-foot space
sits above Starbucks and overlooks Broadway
and was specially designed to offer the flexibility
and comfort for a wedding of 100 guests
or a business meeting of up to 120 people.
Said Adie, “with the opening of the Empire
Room, we now have three on-sight venues to
accommodate celebrations by our guests. The
Opus Room in Maestro’s provides an elegant
setting for dinner parties of up to 14 people.
The Library at Harvey’s has become a very
popular spot for larger parties of up to 32.
Now we can offer the Empire Room for larger
Harvey’s is located at 14 Phila St.
Under Petrosino’s guiding hand, the partners are looking to expand their catering
services beyond their restaurants to the
many popular venues in the Capital region.
Petrosino, has gained much experience in the
catering end of the hospitality industry in his
former positions at the Glen Sanders Mansion
in Scotia and Saratoga National Golf Club.
Joining Petrosino in the kitchen is chef
Jonathan Quinn, formerly the banquet chef
at Taste in Albany.
Maestro’s employees Becky Harbour and
Raymond Boyce Jr. have left their positions
in the restaurant to assist in the management
of Symphony as event sales coordinator and
banquet manager, respectively. Both Harbour
and Boyce have extensive backgrounds in
“We believe there is a demand in the
marketplace for greater choices of caterers
when clients are planning an event. Our
goal at Symphony is to be that alternative; to
give our clients a level of quality and service
unmatched by the competition. We will do
that by creating amazing dishes, through an
unending attention to detail and by working
with the host in fulfilling their requests
thereby creating an unforgettable event”,
Currently housed within the Maestro’s facility
on Broadway, Petrosino said Symphony
is searching for space in the area to house a
larger kitchen dedicated to catering services
“We have been humbled by the early response
and number of event bookings already
secured,” he said. “It is clear the majority of
events we serve will be larger celebrations
and fundraisers held in other venues. Thus
it’s important we plan for and dedicate the
resources our future business will demand.”
