Restaurateurs Buddy and Jennifer Foy operate a pair of establishments in two different states. The Chateau On The Lake is located in Bolton Landing, New York on Lake George and the Chateau Anna Maria (launched in late December of 2020) is at the Waterline Villas and Marina Resort (An Autograph Collection property) on Anna Maria Island, FL.
“The Chateau On The Lake sits on lakefront property on Lake George in Bolton Landing, NY and serves seafood, organic meats and lamb. The restored 1800s private home now serves as the site of one of the Top Hundred Restaurants in America.”
“The Foy’s second location on picturesque Anna Maria Island is an interpretation of the Chateau brand with a Southern twist. Chateau Anna Maria’s cuisine is “French Inspired with Italian portions.” Jennifer Foy is first-generation Italian, which means everyone must have enough portions. Chateau Anna Maria serves fresh fish, Colorado and Iowa Beef, and other chef selections. The Foys invite you to explore your palette and indulge in their fresh ingredients, attention to detail, cleanliness, and atmosphere.”
“Buddy is French and Irish, which means having a great wine collection which is a pleasant distraction for Buddy.” Chateau Anna Maria is open for breakfast, a small lunch menu, weekend brunch and full dinner service.
“The Foys travel often visiting Jen’s family in Italy. They also love traveling domestically. The Foys know how much it means to have great food plus a great experience during traveling and bring that goal of hospitality to their Chateau guests.”
The newest Florida effort, Chateau Sarasota, is aiming for a November opening.
