Pump Station Revamps Menus

Have you seen the new items on the Albany Pump Station's Menus? 

Maybe I'm a little more excited about this than the "Average Joe" because I work about a step away from this iconic Albany restaurant, but the new menus that Executive Chef Todd Cutler and his team have put together are simply mouthwatering!
Don't worry! If you have a favorite dish that you can only get at 19 Quackenbush Square, it's probably still available, like their one-of-a-kind Calamari, tossed with cherry peppers over marinara drizzled with balsamic reduction. 

But you should be excited to see they've added an artisan cheese sampler with local farm cheeses, a pear and goat cheese salad, and something I'm very excited about, fried pickles! 

See for yourself what they've added by clicking here or head over for lunch or dinner. Enjoy!
