New Owners, Same ‘Cuisine Délicieuse’ at Ravenous

By | Business

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Crepe and frites lovers rejoice! You’re in good hands with David Zuka and Julie Raymond, the brand new owners of Ravenous (21 Phila St, Saratoga Springs). 

 

Not only do they have the experience and expertise to continue the heritage of wonderful meals and traditional French favorites which has made Ravenous an instant favorite among many since it’s arrivée on the local cuisine scene in 1999, but a cultivated love for this restaurant specifically. 

David and Julie, who closed on the restaurant on January 2, had become regular Ravenous customers since they moved to the region in 2003. “It became one of our favorite places to eat. For the last two years we worked in New York City made the decision to come back to Saratoga Springs in hopes of running our own company. The restaurant business is a natural choice since we both have experience, and passion for the business.” 

 

Indeed,David, who hails from the mid-Atlantic region, holds a degree in hospitality management and has worked in the restaurant business for 28 years in both operations and distribution. Julie, who is French Canadian, also holds a degree in hotel and restaurant management.  She worked for about 10 years in the hospitality industry, studied at Le Cordon Bleu and had been working in manufacturing for the last 15 years before returning to food, her true passion.

 

In order to assure a smooth transition, the original owners, Lauren Wickizer and Francesco D’Amico are working side-by-side with David and Julie. No major menu changes are planned. “This is a very good, healthy business,” Julie said. “We don’t need to fix something or tinker with anything.” 

 

So breathe a sigh of relief. All your favorites will remain. They are probably the new owner’s favorites as well.

“We were delighted when the opportunity to become a part of Ravenous presented itself since we loved the food and the friendly atmosphere.” Julie said. “It is an honor to own such a great place and we intend to proudly continue to serve the Saratoga community and our loyal customers for many years to come serving delicious crepes and amazing frites.”
