Wine Bar Chef Moving to Thirsty Owl

January 31, 2014

Very exciting news in the Saratoga restaurant scene today. The word is finally out as Deanna Fox of Times Union reported this morning, Chef Dominic Colose of The Wine Bar is moving to Thirsty Owl, effective February 3rd.

The sous chef from The Wine Bar, Cameron Nealy, will be stepping up in Colose’s absence. I’m pretty excited for this change of pace, because I think Chef Colose is a rockstar in the kitchen, and I can’t wait to see what type of flair he brings to Thirsty Owl. FYI – Dominic will be the 4th Chef Thirsty Owl has had since opening in July 2013.

Also – I’m looking forward to seeing how Chef Nealy takes over the kitchen at The Wine Bar.

If you want a last taste of Colose’s touch at The Wine Bar, you better get over there in the next two days. Saturday, February 1st is his last night.

    I really liked the food at Thirsty Owl previously, especially the tapas. I’m wondering why the change and hoping it’s for the better.
