New World Bistro Bar is owned by Scott Meyer and Annette Nanes.  They were also co-owners of the Spectrum 8 Theatres two doors down on Delaware Ave, in Albany’s newly energized entertainment and culinary arts district for 30 years.

Annette and Scott are long time Capital Region residents and support many local Arts endeavors.  After owning the Spectrum Theatres for over 25 years,  they saw a need for a compatible restaurant with a comfortable and casual atmosphere, serving creative cuisine.  Having been long time fans of Woodstock restaurateur, Chef Ric Orlando, they formed a partnership to create NWBB.
