Schenectady restaurants celebrate Travers Stakes with special pricing

Nearly 40 Capital District restaurants and eateries are offering a special pricing on selected three-course meals for the first Travers 1864 Restaurant Week, which takes place Sunday, Aug. 22, through Thursday, Aug. 26. The menu offerings lead into the 141st running of the Travers Stakes on Saturday, Aug. 28, at Saratoga Race Course.

During the five-day event, diners can chose a three-course meal at a number of participating restaurants for a fixed price of $18.64, the same year as the inaugural Travers. The fixed price might not include tax, gratuity and beverage.
