The restaurant serves fresh, delivered-daily oysters, craft spirits and locally-sourced, chef-driven cuisine led by acclaimed Executive Chef Brandon Schatko. Knoblauch has put a great deal of work into the beautifully renovated space, and continues to expand around the growing customer base, while embracing the downtown community.
ESTABLISHED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR
Market Block Books
Managed by Stanley Hadsell, Market Block Books opened in November 2004 as an offspring of The Book House in Albany, and has proven to be an anchor of the downtown retail community. Open six days a week, the bookstore features a full line of adult and children's books, literature, travel, cooking and a large historic section. With a prominent location at the gateway to the downtown shopping district, MBB is a welcome reminder to shop local!
