This new addition to the business will serve food and cocktails to-go, which people can order online and pick up at the airstream. This offers a great option for people looking to take food and cocktails on the go to their homes or campsites or out on their boats.

At the one-year celebration guests enjoyed The Gem’s classic smokehouse offerings, and tasted new dishes including Smokehouse Chicken Wings and the Baltimore Pit Beef Sandwich. They also showcased their seasonal Summer 2023 cocktail menu — including the popular Ramos Gin Fizz — and unveiled brand new merch.

“The Gem has been a great addition to Bolton Landing because of the Boccato and Farmer’s curation of their food and beverage offerings.  Their bourbon collection is among the finest in the region and the dedication to craft cocktails makes for a fun dining experience. The new airstream food truck offers diners even more options to enjoy their food and drinks on the go,” said Gina Mintzer, Executive Director of the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB. 

The Gem has an exciting summer ahead, including events like the Saturday Night Blues Music Series featuring award-winning blues artists who will be playing in the garden.  “Smoked meats, Cocktails and Blues — it does not get more summer than that!”
