Executive Chef Displaced by Saratoga Restaurant Fire Finds New Home at The Century House

When an early morning fire on Thanksgiving forced several restaurants and bars on Putnam St. in Saratoga to close during one of the busiest times of the year, the community responded. The Century House in Latham welcomed staff from two of the restaurants affected by the fire. If you walked through the kitchens of The Century House on any given day in December and looked down the banquet line, you would have noticed Chad Posey from Mio Posto while Colin Murphy from Hamlet & Ghost found a home at every station on the a la carte line.

Also, it is with great pleasure that we announce Mio Posto’s Executive Chef and Owner, Dan Urschel has taken the reins of the a la carte line at The Century House, Tuesday through Saturday starting January 14 and ending sometime in late March. The Century House’s current menu will be enhanced by featuring a “Mio Posto Special of the Day.” Mio Posto regulars take note - private chef table dinners will be available with pre-booking!

Managing Partner and CEO, Colin DeMers remarked, “When asked by our culinary team if the House could bring on these talented guys, it was a very easy ‘Yes.’ My partners and I believe in giving back to the community which has supported us for generation after generation, and quite honestly, it has been a pleasure to watch the visiting chefs work. Each has a unique culinary profile and we’ve enjoyed having these professionals in our kitchens. We’re excited and honored to have Chef Urschel with us for the winter.”

The Century House restaurant is located at 997 New Loudon Rd. (Rt. 9) in Latham and is open Monday through Friday for lunch, Monday through Saturday for dinner, and closed Sundays.
