​Mama Los was created in honor of my mother “Lorine Williams” who was born Savannah Georgia in 1943. She later moved to Albany, NY in 1963 bringing along with her a variety of southern secret seasonings that she used in her recipes for family gatherings in bringing everyone together in good times and in bad.
As a little girl, I spent a lot of time helping my mother cook in the kitchen and as a young adult I would help my parents out at their restaurant, “The Williams Restaurant” formally located on South Pearl Street in Albany. They were known for the signature “Fried Chicken Wings” and catered for different places around Albany like local bars, local baseball teams and church groups. In later years I learned the southern secret recipes by heart and wrote them all down to perfect them. In 2011, Lorine gracefully passed over and Mama Los Soul Food Kitchen was born in her honor. From that point, I picked up where she left off by bringing the family together through food and catering numerous community events, wedding receptions and church events.
Mama Los is best known for her southern recipes like potato salad, collard greens, BBQ beans, BBQ sticky wings and ribs, corn bread, red rice, candy yams and sweet potato pie.

The story of Table 41 Brewing began in 2015 in Latham NY the suburbs of the Capital District, with the essence of making beer personal. The name originated from knowing that personal style and personal taste was all very different for each person,  a table for one was created. Embracing  the differences and styles of our area creating small batches allowed to get to know our customers and community on a greater and deeper level. It was taking something personal from each and crafting a beer specific to their individuality.
 With a deep passion for healthcare and providing for our community for over two decades, made it impossible  to ignore all of those that have given to our community keeping us safe, healthy,  and less vulnerable. These are our first responders, healthcare community, military and good samaritans. All of which should be appreciated and celebrated for all they do. And that’s what Table 41 does on a deeper and personal level.

We truly are the small guy, the grassrooted company that supports community and first responders as well as families in need in the area through creative foods and beers.

Proprietary sauces range in heat from mild to nuclear, with flavor profiles including Jerk BBQ, Thai Chili and Garlic Parmesan. In addition to the Classic wings selection, each location features regional favorites and twists on iconic dishes. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diners have terrific choices as well.

Atomic Wings Albany Franchise Owner Munir Tahir chose the Western Avenue location due to his roots in the region. "I went to college in the area, and of course, classic Buffalo Wings are an iconic New York dish. We could think of no better place to expand this New York brand than in the state capital, and so close to major universities."​
