Here you have it folks, the new owners of The Stadium Cafe on Broadway have officially been announced.
According to a press release I just received, the owners of Saratoga Hospitality LLC, aka Max London’s and Mrs. London’s, purchased the property from Dave Harmon (previous owner) for an undisclosed amount.
The deal just closed last week, and the new owners have plans to revamp the menu, are currently renovating the kitchen, and have plans for the interior and exterior as well.
The kitchen will be run by Kyle Lewis under the guidance of Chef Cutler. Kyle Lewis was previously a sous chef at Max London’s and worked at the Brook Tavern also in Saratoga Springs.
Okay so they have plans to open for outdoor dining soon, which could really mean anywhere from a month to several months. Let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
Can I just say that I’m super pumped about this change? The Stadium has always been a great spot for watching sports, but the food itself has been meh for years. In high school I didn’t care, but now that I appreciate food, I totally care.
This is great news everyone! Stay tuned for updates (as I get them).

Saratoga Springs, N.Y. – Saratoga Hospitality, LLC, the owner of Max London’s Restaurant and Mrs. London’s Bakery and Café, has purchased The Stadium Café, now called Saratoga Stadium, for an undisclosed amount from Dave Harmon. The deal closed on Tuesday, March 8, 2016. The new owners will revamp the menu and have already started to make significant renovations to the Pub’s kitchen, interior and exterior.

This is the third downtown Saratoga Springs restaurant to be operated by Saratoga Hospitality, LLC who took over Max London’s and Mrs. London’s in September of 2014. Saratoga Stadium has been a part of the Broadway landscape since 2002. Saratoga Hospitality closed Saratoga Stadium for a week so that immediate repairs could be made to the facade, kitchen and the replacement of televisions throughout the bar and dining area. Additional updates and upgrades will be done to the interior throughout the course of the year including the dining room and restrooms.
“Our plan is to continue with the concept, but revamp the menu to reflect highest quality products for our customers,” said Zach Cutler, corporate executive chef.
