Ballistic Shrimp Steamed Seafood serves a menu of fresh, quickly prepared seafood with a healthy twist. Instead of deep-frying their fare like typical fast food restaurants, they steam or boil shrimp, crab legs, and fish to serve alongside fresh vegetables or homemade chowders and bisques. Combo meals allow diners to sample a variety of seafaring delicacies at once including Canadian salmon, Brazilian lobster tail, and American shrimp that spent a semester abroad. The ocean-blue dining room features starfish and seashell accents and offers limited seating at round, high-top tables.

As locks click and fluorescents dim at most conventional restaurants, the night owls at Café 217 hurl howls at the moon: their night's just getting started. Open nonstop from Friday at 5 p.m. to Sunday at 3 p.m. and with late hours throughout the rest of the week, Café 217 centers itself as Albany's nocturnal hideout for party prowlers, third-shifters, and Nosferatu's roommates. Prepared fresh to order, the breakfast menu draws inspiration from the French, though Italian influences pervade the lunch menu, which includes a grilled portobello-mushroom sandwich with roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, mozzarella, and a balsamic reduction. Available at all hours, the dinner menu aims for upscale, as does the interior, where metal trellises with floral designs stud the walls and bright-yellow tablecloths swathe tables. Patrons can dab their faces with bright-purple napkins, which ably conceal blots of wine or Rorschach tests of grape jelly.
