With just a few days remaining before the upcoming Saratoga Race Course season, there's big news about one of Saratoga's most popular restaurants. A venerable trackside Saratoga staple and place to 'see and be seen' has been sold.

According to the Times Union, the legendary Siro's Restaurant was sold last week by the Manhattan-based investment banker group who ran it since 2010.  The Times Union article states that Siro's will be leased to Scott Soloman, a partner who has plenty of experience operating restaurants here locally for many years.

Siro's has had a longstanding tradition as of the more popular Saratoga Springs restaurants over the years with it's close proximity to the track.  It has established itself as a 'must visit' for out of town celebrities who galavant prominently when racing season is at it's peak.

According to the Times Union, Siro's, unique in that they only operate regular business hours during the racing season, will  still hold their annual Siro's Cup on Wednesday (the day before the racing season begins) and will be open Wednesday through Sunday . They are closed on Monday and Tuesdays, which are the two days of the week that there in no thoroughbred racing.
