Chef John LaPosta has had a long and exciting career path which has landed him in Saratoga Springs. Along with Tina Kruger he has created a wonderful Fine American Bistro full of great energy, fine hospitality and of course outstanding food. Recently the N.Y. Times stated that on a day trip to Saratoga ".head back up to Broadway for lunch at Maestro's. The pumpkin-colored walls, jazz pulsing in the background and diners enjoying a crisp glass of wine with lunch give the place the feel of a Parisian café.". It is his passion for excellence, beaming hospitality, and tireless work which have been the hallmarks of John's 20 plus years as one of the Capital Regions most popular Chef's. He is known for his outstanding food which he serves for "real" people in a fun and unassuming style. His simple philosophy has always been "put the love on plate". In doing this people feel comfortable when reading his menus and do not feel as if they need be a Chef themselves to understand it. John spent 4 years as the Executive Chef at the legendary Jack's Oyster House in Albany and attributes much of his "just say yes to the customer" attitude with that experience. He was the creative and culinary force behind the highly successful Conservatory Grille in Clifton Park which was voted the "Best New Restaurant" by both The New York State Restaurant Association and Metroland Magazine. Before opening Maestro's he spend almost 5 years as the Executive Chef and Innkeeper at the Cambridge Hotel, a hidden jewel in Washington County. He is focused and driven to grow the highly successful Maestro's into a culinary experience by which all others will be judged.
