Albany rarea recommedations - I90 vicinity with parking

We'll be passing through Albany on Sunday on our way from Syracuse back to Connecticut.
Looking for a late afternoon/early evening dinner recommendation
We usually stop at Orchard Tavern but we will have our travel trailer with us this time and the parking there isn't the best.
Any recommendations for something that is close to the highway, has parking (the trailer's 20 ft long so somewhere (strip mall) were we can get a double length space would work well).
Any cuisine works - just something good and open


Orchard Tavern
68 N Manning Blvd, Albany, NY 12206

  1. Grappa '72, the new restaurant where Carmine's used to be, would fit your specifications perfectly. They're in a strip mall with plenty of parking less than a mile from I-90 at the Everett Rd exit. Here's the restaurant's web page:
    here's a link to the Times Union's review:
