A new eatery will be opening in the old Noodles and Co.location at Crossgates Commons.

I was totally bummed when Noodles and Company closed last year, but the good news a new eatery will take its place opening next month!

According to a Times Union report, Zaitoon Kitchen will open there 2nd Capital Region location at Crossgates Commons in mid-November. Zaitoon specializes in dishes from Afghanistan and the middle east. Owners tell the Times Union they chose the old Noodles and Co. spot because of it's central location and proximity to Crossgates Mall and all the area shopping destinations. Zaitoon currently has a restaurant in Latham on Schenectady Road, right near the Latham Circle.

Crossgates is one of the areas go to destinations for so many activities, so the food options, the better right?
