Eat, Drink & be Merry!

We've had 4 new businesses open on Lark Street in the past couple of weeks.

Crisan Bakery & Edible Art Gallery- Delish desserts, fine pastries and to-die-for gelato. This is the proverbial "kid in a candy shop" because you won't know what to start with. YUMMY!

Al-Baraki II- opening in the old Peas & Beans restaurant, serving the finest Lebanese food this side of Hudson (the first location is in Troy). They have some of the best falafel in town!

Good Leaf Gourmet Tea Co.- in the old Lark Tattoo spot, this is the second location for the Co with the first At The Warehouse. I only have two words- BUBBLE TEA!

Capital Wine & Spirits- your favorite neighborhood wine shop is back open and under new management. It's been sorely missed all these months but it's back, better than ever and building up their selection.

So, eat, drink and be merry!
