Did you love the delicious treats from The Cupcake Lab located inside the Roohan Realty Building in Saratoga? I know that I have been missing the mouth-watering “Lab Breakfast Burrito,” since The Lab closed in October. But dry your tears Lab fans because owners, Mike and Liz Phillips are starting anew and opening up Elizabeth’s Table, which will set up shop in the historic Algonquin Building, located at 510 Broadway, formally 80 West Boutique.
How will Elizabeth’s Table be different than The Cupcake Lab? Instead of focusing on baked goods, Elizabeth’s Table will be more of a dinner spot, although they will continue to take special bakery orders, for those with a sweet tooth.
The Phillips’ want Elizabeth’s Table to be a local hang out with a large community reach. The restaurant will feature long community tables to encourage people to talk to each other–a great way to meet your neighbors! The new space is 1,700 square feet, almost half the size of The Cupcake Lab’s space. Elizabeth’s Table isn’t small by any means though, and has a relaxing and intimate setting.
One of the best aspects of the new location is that there will be bar seating by the store window, so customers can order a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and look out onto Broadway. What a prime people watching spot! Convenient parking is also a perk, with a parking lot located to the right of the building.
Having locally produced foods is important to the Phillips family, so Elizabeth’s Table will also have local produce incorporated onto the menu. The dinner menu will be written on a blackboard and will have about five to ten entrees that will change–keeping the menu fresh and exciting. The cuisine at Elizabeth’s Table will include an eclectic mix of sweet and savory treats, as well as homemade soups, sandwiches, salads, breads and unique dinners.
A major attraction of Elizabeth’s Table will be the “Grab and Go” section. If you’re in a hurry and need a food fast or don’t feel like cooking, the restaurant will have delicious packaged meals ready for you when you’re in a pinch. The “Grab and Go” section is a healthier and tastier alternative to fast food.
Elizabeth’s Table will support the community by donating all of their day old goods to the Saratoga Economic Opportunity Council (EOC). The Phillips family has donated $1,000 of product and gift cards to support local charities.
You can expect exciting events to be hosted at Elizabeth’s Table. The Phillips’ will have a “Meet the Farmer” dinner yearly, introducing the people who grow the food to Elizabeth’s Table customers. Wine tasting, cooking classes, baking classes and coffee making and tasting classes will also be given at the restaurant so you can expand your palette and improve your culinary skills!
I am so excited that there will be a new downtown Saratoga restaurant. Elizabeth’s Table is expected to open this week, so check out Liz and Mike’s new digs and try an item from the unique menu! You can expect me to be there for sure!
