The Trestle Restaurant and Pub

Located at the corner of Cohoes Road/Route 32 and Alden Street, the Trestle takes its name from a nearby rail bridge. Mindful of the property’s working-class history and location, the menu will be pub fare and comfort food but executed with the high culinary standards for which Cobblestone Lunch is known, including house-roasted and -smoked meats, and homemade breads, salad dressings and soups, Richards said.
“Our goal is to put out the best quality food we can and serve it at an affordable price,” he said. “With the capabilities of (the Trestle’s) kitchen, we’ll be able to increase what we do (at Cobblestone), too.”
