Five Questions: Yvonne McEachron

1. What is your favorite local restaurant (and what do you always order)?

I have a few, so it’s hard to pick just one! If I must…one of my favorite local spots is Capriccio. It’s consistent, quaint, and delicious. I always splurge on their brick oven pizza. The Carcerato is my go-to. I mean it has ricotta hidden in the crust, yes please?!? If I’m feeling something lighter, their beet salad is to die for.

2. Favorite local Saratoga event?

I would have to say Chowderfest. There are so many exciting things happening during the Summer months in Saratoga, which keep our calendars full! As for Winters in Upstate New York, we need some chowda to get us through! I love to get bundled up and walk around, sample the local goodies, while people watching.

3. What is one thing you have always wanted to do in Saratoga but still have not done?

I have never gone to a Saratoga polo match! I am making it my mission to attend a match this Summer.

4. Your perfect weekend would always include…?

My weekends usually revolve around (good) food, and a cocktail, or two. So my perfect weekend would be dinner and drinks at a downtown eatery. Live music is a plus.

A Sunday involving brunch at Max London’s or Sweet Mimi’s followed by a walk downtown, popping into some of my favorite spots; Silverwood, Homessence, Paper dolls, and Encounter to name a few.

5. If you were a cocktail you would be?   

A vodka tonic, slice of lime - clean, a tad sweet, with a little twist.
Simple and gets the job done.
