So there I was..at the BMW dealer in Albany… at lunch time, and someone’s stomach decided it was time to eat! So I set about asking for lunch recommendations other than the fast food places that seemed to be everywhere. CREO was the word that simultaneously came from the mouths of three – so we decided that was good enough for us. Located in a strip mall, CREO touts an ambiance that is hip, modern, warm and inviting– whisking you away from questionable thoughts of dining in a mall. The staff was very attentive and the service quite good. We shared three items: Lobster Bisque (very good), Fried Oysters (excellent) and a Steak Salad (not that great). As we were dining several enticing aromas passed by as waiters delivered gourmet pizzas all around us. This seemed to be their sweet-spot; we vowed to try that on our next visit.
