As I reported earlier this month in a a major news roundup of new-venue developments, it is an offshoot off the popular Ballston Spa restaurant Augie’s Family Style Restaurant.
Augie's To Go is located at 223 Lake Avenue, former home of Mario's Pizzeria. Owner Augie Vitiello conceived it as a spot for ready-to-heat-and-eat meals (the sort of thing onetime local "celeb" chef Carmine Sprio tried in Latham with no success some years ago), and he'll be accepting call-in orders. Phone: 580-8646.
Vitiello, a native of the Bronx, was a Westchester County restaurateur for 13 years before opening Augie's on Church Avenue in Ballston Spa in 2004. After a fire there in 2013, he reopened the business at its current venue, 17 Low Street.
