Laurina, Dan and Ralph Ecobelli.
Ann Hauprich, area publicist and author, became involved with the book early on and said, “It is near and dear to my heart because Ecobelli’s Tam O’Shanter was the very first place my parents and all 10 of their children went out to eat as a family when we moved from Latham to Ballston Spa in1968…it was considered one of the village’s finest dining establishments.”
Hauprich added that she has never forgotten the hospitality ofthe Ecobelli family and returned many times over the years that followed.
According to the Ecobellis, many who have responded to them to submit their memories (they’re still seeking more) also remembered the generosity and warm hospitality of her grandparents.
