An Albany favorite has been recognized as one of the best restaurants in the state that New Yorkers must add to their bucket-list.

When you think of the best restaurants in the Capital Region, you probably have several that come to mind. I know I have my personal list too - but I have a feeling there is one Capital Region spot we all have in our personal best-of collection of eateries. This is the same restaurant that was recently called a place " have to visit before you die." This Albany restaurant you should actually visit as much as humanly possible before heading to the great beyond.


Now, before we reveal this supreme eatery, let me share what Only In Your State had to say about this Albany favorite:

"Found right in Downtown, this local favorite is located right by some of Albany's major sources of entertainment. Often stopping here before their night out on the town, New York's residents can enjoy an assortment of delicious seafood and unforgettable steaks. It's a great place to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or other special occasion."

I think you know which restaurant we are talking about! Only In Your State put 677 Prime in Albany at #5 on their list of the "...15 restaurants you have to visit in New York before you die" in their list of the best in the Empire State for foodies. A bucket-list-worthy restaurant? Now that is pretty high praise. Considering all the amazing eateries from New York City to Buffalo, it's super high praise!

Only In Your State nailed this one on the head: 677 Prime is a must before heading out to downtown Albany for a show, concert, or sporting event. Their steaks are second to none in the Capital Region and the atmosphere and service are just as stellar.
