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.

... as somebody who is interested in developing downtown and possibly starting a business there, but isn't Columbia development, what message do those tax breaks send to me? The smaller players who will do the type of infill, mixed use development that we really need get discouraged when they see that only the big guys get any support from the city and that the playing field is tilted against them ...
