“There are not many casual dining restaurant options in the area,” said Hostig. “We’re local, so residents won’t have to travel far. We’re practically in their backyard.”
The country club will continue to hold brunches, but will change from once a week to once a month in order to provide a lager buffet and live entertainment.
New to Normanside, cooking demonstrations with a four-course meal and wine pairing will be held with the restaurant’s chef and are open to club members and the public for a fee. In addition, murder mystery dinners have already begun at Grille One Six Five and another one is scheduled for Jan. 28.
Hostig said the staff have also worked to spruce up the golf course. Improvements have been made to the course’s layout, tree work was done, and upkeep was done around the greens.
In thanks for the continued support from the community, Normanside’s management staff enjoys giving back locally. Already, the club’s owners donated sauce for a pizza sale held by fifth graders at Elsmere Elementary School and participated in Albany’s Wine and Dine for the Arts.
Hostig said he wants to make the restaurant and club’s presence known within the community.
“We care tremendously about our customers, and value their input,” he said. “We also like to work with local businesses and create valuable working relationships.”
