Tosca in Troy

Arrived in Albany a couple of weeks back, a little worried about absence of high-end dining. Then we went to Tosca for one of our first meals, and my worries were greatly reduced: this place is *great*. Formal setting but friendly staff, and really _superb_ food: two of the standouts were a cold peach soup and my char-grilled lamb with chanterelles, but everything was reassuringly good - even as leftovers a few days later.

*Highly* recommended.

[Other experiences thus far not that great; the Ginger Man was decent, and Capital Q I had for lunch today but not overwhelmed (despite fantastic friendly service).] We'll keep looking, but good to know that there's at least one good place!

    Thanks for the report. You might want to do a search of this site and check out: TOP NY Capital Region - Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Troy. Tosca is mentioned there.

      Try McGuires in Albany... perhaps the best in the capitol region!

        we were going to go but were unprepared for those prices so we opted for brunch the next day instead.maybe we'll go for dinner after we get settled in the area later this year.we ended up at provance(?) i think it's called,and it was very good.
