It's almost the weekend and you're looking for where you should go to eat dinner. There are so many great restaurants in the Capital Region but if you want to step away from your standards, take a look at these options!

The Albany Business Journal broke it down by city and gave you the top 5 restaurants in each of Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga based on data they found on TripAdvisor. I was actually surprised by just how many of these I've been to. Some of my favorite restaurants are on this list but that's not to say that a few of these wouldn't make my top 10, let alone top 5. What do you think of these choices?
