Sneak Peak: New Stadium Menu on Tap

By | Business

SARATOGA SPRINGS – How do you make a great thing better? Offer more of it. 

The two Stadium Cafés (389 Broadway and 112 Congress Street, Saratoga Springs) are doing just that by increasing their menu options and launching a new menu design which should be in place by next weekend. 

“We’ll have all your favorites from before – wings, crabcakes, kobe burgers are still on the menu,” Proprietress Chris Harmon said. “We’ve just increased the options.” 

Indeed. For instance, A popular item is calamari, and next week you can have it prepared three ways: tossed with balsamic and parmesan, buffalo style and salt and pepper with marinara sauce. The new arugula salad menu item would pair well with each, as would the new grilled salmon salad. 

But they really kick it up with the burger offerings: eight new options to try. “We would try some new burger combos and put them on a one-day special, and people went for them in a big way,” said Chef Joe Shea, “so we decided to offer all of them every day.” 

Included in the new burger options are the Stadium “hot mess” burger - complete with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, sweet potato fries bacon, jalapenos, pickles and Russian dressing; the breakfast burger with smoked bacon, red onion, cheddar cheese and topped with a fried egg; pulled pork and salmon burgers and four other similarly inventive combos. “We’ll be starting a new burger club card soon as well,” Chris said. “Buy eight burgers and get the next one free. Once we get the new menu rolling, we’ll have another round of daily specials – a ‘build your own burger, for instance.”  

That will be soon to come, but in effect on the day the new Stadium menu’s debut is an everyday, permanent 10 percent discount (with valid ID) for military, Skidmore and Empire State College personnel on all items. It’s even printed on the new menu’s cover.

“We’ll have a lot of other theme nights and promotions planned,” said Chris. For more information visit thestadiumcafes.com
