As New York State's capital, Albany's restaurant line-up embraces the world, from Asian delights and European delicacies to down-home Southern cooking. Restaurants themselves are also diverse from Daniel's at Ogdens, with its global cuisine served in century-old architectural charm, to trendy chains such as the family-style Buca di Beppo, offering immigrant southern Italian fare amid �40s decor. At the Altamonte Old Stone House Inn, patrons dine within 18th century pleasantry. Jack's Oyster House, established in 1913, is Albany's oldest restaurant continuously run by the same family. The Evans Brewing Company-Albany, New York Pump Station, original site for the Albany Water Works, doubles as a microbrewery and restaurant with a 120-year family brewing heritage. Albany also brims with options for dining via river cruise. The sleek dinner yacht Captain J.P. II sails on the scenic Hudson from Troy past the Port of Albany, and the Lake George Steamboat Company offers lunch, Sunday brunch, and dinner cruises with live entertainment. The State Room, in the former circa 1929 DeWitt Clinton Hotel Ballroom, accommodates up to 400 patrons amid magnificent pillars and high ceilings for grand affairs. While the Albany lunch scene is typically for office workers and other regulars, the 112 State Street Deli and Restaurant has been hailed as worth a special trip downtown.
