But, in addition to its four restaurants it also encompasses a company farm in this rural Saratoga County community.
DZ Farm, located at 2023 Hermance Road, will be the venue for an event involving chefs from all four DZ Restaurants at 3 p.m. Sunday, October 12. Tickets, available by calling 518-583-1142, are $150 each, and cover food and drink samples from multiple tasting stations, plus an open bar, valet parking, farm tours, fire pits and other amenities.
Proceeds will go to The Adult and Senior Center of Saratoga, a nonprofit serving adults 50 and older.
The DZ Restaurants are Chianti Ristorante, Forno Bistro and Boca Bistro in Saratoga Springs, and Pasta Pane in Clifton Park. The 65-acre farm is dedicated to sustainable agricultural practices. Like the restaurant, it is owned by David and Roslyn Zecchini, who purchased it in January.
The Adult and Senior Center is a non-profit, non-residential community center located in downtown Saratoga Springs. Adults age 50 and over can join for only $20 a year and participate in programs, trips and social activities tailored to adults and seniors. Those striving to maintain an independent lifestyle can make new friends, share in a meal, play a game, exercise, take a class or learn a new skill. The social interaction provided at the Center is essential to physical and mental health.
