The Crown Grill has announced the launch of their new summer menu which debuts on Thursday June 30. The menu features classic Crown Grill favorites including Maryland Crab Cakes and Rack of Lamb along with new delicious offerings including: Roasted Zucchini Flatbread, Cajun Penne Alfredo, Shrimp Milanese, New York Strip Steak Four Ways (your choice of Traditional, Coffee Rub, Cognac/Dijon Cream or Au Poivre), Chicken Piccata and more. The bar menu features new cocktails like the Fig Martini, Lemon Basil Martini, Honey Crush as well as a robust selection of craft beers and wines.
The Crown Grill will be open for dinner service from 5pm until 10pm every day except Tuesday. Happy Hour will be offered at the bar weekdays from 4:30pm-6:30pm and will feature $5 signature martinis, wines and well drinks plus $4 drafts. Buy one, get one free appetizers will also be available to pair with their menu of signature hand crafted cocktails. The Crown Grill won the 2016 designation of Best Martini and Best Atmosphere in the Saratogian Readers Choice Awards.
Kitchen improvements over the past few weeks have included making the Crown Grill kitchen completely separate from that of their adjacent sister restaurant, Circus Café. “We are happy to have two separate Chef’s and two separate kitchens to allow for more creativity, a distinct, separate identity and enhanced guest accommodation in each restaurant”, says co-owner Christel MacLean. Chef Brian Maxwell is running The Crown Grill kitchen. A seasoned Chef, Brian has spent the last 13 years at award winning Villago and Village Pizzeria.
“As previously reported, with the opportunities presented to us by our other business, Saratoga Juice Bar, we found ourselves with limited time and put The Crown Grill on the market. When a suitable buyer did not materialize by late spring we decided to have some fun and make this a really wonderful summer with a terrific full dinner menu, new bar additions and entertainment twice a week,” says co-owner Colin MacLean. Starting July 20, entertainment will be every Wednesday at 7pm featuring Azzaam and Roosevelt (R&B, Soul and a little Jazz) as well as Sundays at 9pm featuring the Legendary Al Bruno.
On Thursday June 30 and Friday July 1, The Crown Grill will be offering complimentary samples of their new signature cocktails and appetizers to celebrate the launch of their summer menu. Featured will be the Fig Martini, Blue Hawaiian, and Lemon Basil Martini. An assortment of complimentary specialty flatbread samples will also be available.
The Crown Grill is located at 390 Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs. For more information or to make a reservation, please call 518.583.1105.
