Today's ride on the Capital Region foodie-go-round
Anker's Fish Fry even though its sign says Ankers Fish & Chicken House, was created in the early 1950s by Lew Anker. He sold it in 1992 to Bob Servidone. Nothing had been done to upgrade the building over the years, and, as Servidone tells Times Union columnist Marv Cermak, "We've been holding parts of it together with duct tape." The venue is getting a new kitchen and refrigeration units, and an inside dining area, something it does not have since its essentially is a takeout operation. A covered patio also will be added for warm-weather service. Anker's is located at 420 Altamont Avenue and Avenue M. Phone: 382-8842.
