Taste listed for sale

Currently listed for sale: Taste, the downtown Albany restaurant. From the listing: "Offering four distinct profit centers including the Bar, Restaurant with large patio (Seating Capacity - 52 restaurant, 40 bar, 125 patio), lobby kiosk, and the penthouse meeting and banquet facility (Seating capacity - 400 including rooftop deck for 300) with amazing views of the Albany skyline."

List price: $450,000.

As you might remember, this is the restaurant that started as Dale Miller and switched names in 2011 after the chef and the owners parted ways.

Update: Steve Barnes spoke with one of the owners, who said that any sale would require that gift cards or other commitments be met.

(Thanks, Elisabeth)

Taste has advertised with AOA in the past.

Wow, just today there is a Groupon for Taste! Maybe I'll hold off on that one...

Jessica R: For what it's worth, it seems to take a long time to sell something like this. And presumably whoever bought it would want to continue as a restaurant there. So there probably isn't much risk in buying the deal.

Update: See Steve Barnes' post.

When Stephanie's on the Park changed ownership they would not accept the previous owners coupons and eventually changed their name.

... I tend to ask questions that make the person think about what they just said. I ask it sweetly and in a tone that notes confusion on my part. I have been called honey in the office and asked the person, " Can I ask what you mean when you call me honey? Because you don't call John honey." It calls out that he's treating you differently for being a woman. If he still doesn't get it, you can be more direct: "I appreciate that you respect my work and treat me equally, but I wouldn't want others to think otherwise based on how you address me."
