Those visiting Saratoga Springs may be surprised to find that a restaurant listed in the Hudson Valley guidebooks, even those that name only a dozen restaurants in this area, would be so utterly indifferent in the quality of its food. The "famous" seafood chowder was gloppy and tasteless, the other dishes were what you'd expect in a 4 out of 10 diner in New York City. The service was middling to poor. If this is among the best Saratoga Springs can do out of season, it's no wonder the racing season brings loads of temporary restaurants. Certainly it's a disappointment to find how little joy in food seems to abound generally in this town in June. Ripe Tomato was one of the few that even looked clean enough to eat in.
