The Spa City’s Restaurant Scene Continues to Grow
It’s always exciting when a new restaurant opens, and here in Saratoga Springs, a new dining spot named The District has been serving food at 43 Phila Street. As noted by the Times Union, details are limited at the moment, but the online menu features a mix of New American cuisine with some Mediterranean infused flavors. The restaurant has a large outdoor patio, which is a plus as the weather warms up this summer.
