Are you like me? Most of the time you always want to try a new place but for some reason, you go with the tried and true? These eateries will break that habit.

I think the above describes my love affair with Browns in Troy. I always want to venture out, but I have never had a bad plate at Browns and their menu is always changing!

For 2019, I want to try new things. New Cuisines and new places. NYUP created a list of the 22 best new restaurants in Upstate New York. 6 of those are right here in the Capital Region. And here they are.

  • #20 - Caskade Kitchen and Bar in Cohoes
  • #19 - Marrakesh in Clifton Park
  • #12 - Malcolms in Schenectady
  • #9 - Mexican Restaurant El Cilantro in Ballston Spa
  • #4 - Iron Gate Cafe in Albany
  • #3 - Mazadar Mediterranian Kitchen in Albany

There is the list, I myself will be trying all of the above in the not too distant future. Have you been to any of these?
