SEAR is a modern steakhouse situated on the first floor of the Avant (Embassy Suites Hotel). The relaxed, upscale environs are sophisticated yet comfortable. They offer a bar scene with a great vibe, a robust wine list and an innovative menu. We love the salads, the sliders, Lobster Mac and, of course, the steaks.
In addition to good wine, clever cocktails, and craft beer, Billy Club also features good whiskey, like really really good whiskey. As for the food, its bold flavors are designed to match Billy Club’s bold whiskeys, beers, and cocktails.
A unique raclette menu will be the highlight of Raclettes, along with cheese and chocolate fondues, crepes – both sweet and savory, soups, salads, Mussels (of course) with pomme frites and French/European Provencal style specials.
In our opinion Toutant is among the best restaurants in the city, joining the Buffalo stalwarts and a few 2014 startups, shuffling in what we hope is a new era in WNY. The focus here is food, just one of the things we love about this place.
The Black Sheep Restaurant & Bar is truly a WNY stand out, not only in their uniquely fine cuisine, but their "unrelenting commitment to locally sourced produce & sustainably raised meats". Chef/owner Steve Gedra and his GM/Baker wife Ellen regularly push the envelope with new and different dishes. You have to sample the local pork, we love the beet salad when available, brunch is awesome as are Ellen's desserts.

Chef/owner Adam Getz is a brilliant craftsman, a work horse in the kitchen, and has cooked at the James Beard House - nuff said. Wife Jennifer works the front of the house where they serve up some of the finest cuisine in town. Everything is good and changing on a regular basis, but the last time we were in we had a Cavatelli with a Sweet Pea pesto about which we still dreaming.
Buffalo's Original Steak & Seafood: While BOSS might not be the most posh steak joint in town, it has a personality all its own. The longer I sat there the better I liked it. If I had to guess, and I do, I’d say BOSS may be starting to fire on all cylinders after an extended metamorphosis.
