All in the Family

With the introduction of a new Albany supper club, the Serroukas clan continues to expand their restaurant empire

The Standard is the family’s vision for a supper club-like restaurant. “We want our guests to step back into early Las Vegas, to the Rat Pack days,” says Serroukas. “We wanted something electric and high-energy, with that whole 1940s mod design where everything is really futuristic-looking.” With tile, stone and wood accents, intricate stained glass art, and huge multicolored panels with era-appropriate prints, it seems they’ve succeeded. A bit more upscale than its mid-Valley cousins, the Crossgates Mall’s newest addition has 350 seats and features a menu with a selection ranging from burgers and steaks to seafood. Notable cocktails include the Lychee Martini and the Frozen Bellini, and with entrées like savory bouillabaisse (shellfish and sea bass simmered in a tomato saffron stock with garlic and fresh herbs) and horseradish-crusted filet mignon wrapped in bacon, there are certainly enough dining choices to pair with them.
