15 Church is a beautifully restored historic building located in the heart of Saratoga Springs, NY. A collaboration between Thomas Burke and Paul McCullough, each with an all consuming devotion to both food and guest. Seafood flown in fresh daily and the very best USDA prime aged beef are highlighted in an imaginative menu artfully mixing the classic and exotic, served with style in a comfortable yet elegant dining room.
Originally from Albany NY, Paul moved to Atlanta GA. in the early 1980’s and began working for the now nationally acclaimed team of Pano Karatassos and Paul Albrecht. After a 12 year working relationship which included key roles at The Fish Market, Pano’s and Paul’s, Buckhead diner and Chop’s lobster bar, Paul opened his own highly successful restaurant, Gastronomia in Sarasota Fl. Upon returning to upstate NY, Paul met his wife Susan as well as his new business partner Tom Burke to form the group which now humbly offers for your dining pleasure, 15 Church. We look forward to serving you!
