Finally a great wood fired pizza near Albany!
Max London's Restaurant + Bar
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866
The new restaurant of Max London, former chef at Eartha's and son of bread and pastry legends Michael and Wendy London, is a wonderful place.
The space is great albeit noisy. The food is contemporary Mediterranean with a mix of incredible tapas, wood fired Neapolitan style pizza and a changing array of main courses. Many of the ingredients are local. They are doing in-house charcuterie with Flying Pigs Farm pork.
Michael London, arguably the nation's best baker according to Saveur Magazine, is making breads for the restaurant, while Mrs. London's provides many of the decadent desserts.
Make a reservation well in advance as it's only been open a couple of months and is very popular.
I've only been once as it's about an hour from where I live. It was so busy I did not dare to attempt to converse with the chef. Maybe next time.
