Ginger Man is at the top of Greenwich Ave, almost to the intersection of the Old Post Road (Route 1). It is a pub style restaurant, w/ a long bar when you enter, 2 floors (although I've never seen anyone upstairs), a fireplace in the rear of the place which is cozy during winter nights. This is a chain bar - there is one in NYC and Norwalk, CT that I know of. Both are good. There are lots of beers on tap. Many seasonal beer offerings. The menu has the typical chicken wings and burgers (both good) but also some unusual dishes that are worth trying: the salmon BLT is really good, plus the Buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. There are locals who sit at the bar during the afternoon & you can read all the NYC papers while sipping a beer and munching on wings. Also, you'll see business peeps from around the area here especially for lunch. Also great for kids & family: the staff handles all of these groups well.

One of the best hotels in Albany...I would say the BEST hotel. I stayed for several days in the J Suite. It was fantastic. Great room, with a fire place, huge bathroom and the bed and decor was comfortable. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. The location is in the heart of Downtown Albany, making it very convenient. Parking is easy, but you have to get valet.
One of our favorite spots in Downtown Albany! This place has an amazing brunch and free pizza with a drink purchase. If you live in Albany or the surrounding area, or are in town for anything, definitely stop in for food and drink.
