Award-winning on-site dining

This October 6-15, we are painting the Capital Region PINK to help save lives from breast cancer by participating in the 2nd Annual Pink Restaurant Week in association with the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program.  Starting October 6 three “pink” items will be available in both Simpson’s and The Tavern for purchase, with a portion of all proceeds going to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Albany.  Dine out for a good cause, and help us support the American Cancer Society.

For over 40 years dining at The Desmond has captured the elegance and sophistication in Albany restaurants. From our English-style pub The Tavern, to the casual atmosphere of Simpson’s – dining at The Desmond is always a delicious and memorable experience, with award-winning food and service from our culinary and waitstaff teams.  We are proud to have received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for Simpson’s since 2013.
