Farmers Hardware is a new brunch dining restaurant expected to open in June on Maple Avenue in Saratoga Springs.
For owner Julia Sanzen, the restaurant is about combining her love of cooking, health and nutrition.
Sanzen was born and raised in Saratoga Springs. She later moved out of the city, graduating from American University and receiving professional training at the National Gourmet Institute. She has worked alongside celebrity chefs and opened her own catering service.
Now Sanzen is ready to come back home.
“I delved into the Saratoga food scene. The word is that good quality breakfast is needed,” she said.
Farmers Hardware will be located at 35 Maple Ave.
The venue itself contains three floors. The first floor contains a communal dining area. There will also be patio seating outdoors. Before sitting down, guests can walk upstairs to the second floor, where they place their orders. The third floor is available for additional seating. There is also private event space available on the third floor.
