You won't believe how many new eateries will be available for your gorging pleasure around these parts if they haven't opened already.  Here's just a few-

The Spicy Mint Indian Cuisine on Wolf Road in Colonie.  This one caught my interest.  Love, love, love Indian food.  You?

Checkers Burgers.  Yes - another burger joint. (Named "Hot Again" by Nation's Restaurant News in 2005)

Koni's Broadway Cafe on 357 Broadway in Troy- looks like a nice, cozy locally owned spot.


Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches in downtown Schenectady

Lots of choices, and I haven't even gotten started.  I got this material from  and you can find the whole list there.
