Today's ride on the Capital Region Foodie-Go-Round


Latham's Galleria 7 Market -- yes, the Capital Region actually is creating a shopping area with a California-style name --  has just announced its fourth tenant. Schenectady's Napoli Bakery will open a satellite in the Plaza 7 Commons on Route 7. It will sell cakes, pastries, breads, prepared pastas and sauces, and other products. The Innovo Kitchen,  a venture by the controversial duo of chef John LaPosta and partner Tina Kruger, already has opened there, as have Anna's Wood Fired Pizza and the Hooked Seafood Company market. (LaPosta and Kruger are under indictment by a Saratoga County grand jury on felony charges of stealing from their association with the former restaurant Maestro's At the Van Dam in Saratoga Springs. The case is pending.)


The Local, 142 Grand Avenue, Saratoga Springs, is planning to donate 10% of the price of all food purchases to The Children's Museum at Saratoga. The fundraiser is scheduled for 5 to 9 p.m. next Tuesday (December 5), and covers both eat-in and take-out purchases. The Local, which bills itself as a "pub and teahouse," serves brunch, lunch, and dinner. Phone: 587-7256.


• The Sweet Leaf Tea Company announced today it is voluntarily recalling Sweet Leaf Tea in 16-ounce glass bottles due to "an abundance of caution because of the possible presence of glass fragments" caused by breakage during the filling process. The recall is limited to specific production codes on this chart.
