Walking into Roost, you might doubt that you’re in Buffalo, or on Niagara St. You’re reminded of the raw beauty of our post-industrial city and, seriously, how f*%^ing cool Buffalo is becoming through these developments in areas that were abandoned for years. Your fellow bougies are already sitting at their tables getting day drunk, and the servers and cooks are hustling around like our badass restaurant folk do in this city of movers and shakers. All that is reason alone to visit Roost. And then there's the food.
We were sad to see Black Rock kitchen & Bar close, but The Dapper Goose has done a great job in softening the blow. This Black Rock gem offers one of the premier craft cocktail programs in town. The understated elegance gives off the perfect vibe for a romantic getaway dinner and the wines and cuisine to match.
Treat yourself to some of the best dishes in WNY at the hands of Chef Andrew Murtha at this nine plate designee. Carte Blanche cuisine is New American with a lean toward French. The modest building exterior opens up to a comfortable, creative interior. A well trained kitchen and bar staff serves up delicious chow and delectable drinks with equal integrity. We'd throw some recommendation at you but the menu changes up so fast it's hard to keep up.
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.
Conventiently located in the heart of downtown Buffalo, NY, adjacent to Canalside, William K's is one of Buffalo's premier dining destinations. William K's Restaurant offers a warm and inviting atmosphere that compliments our view of Buffalo's greatest assets- our view.

Lushly decorated with original 1900's decor, the Pan-American Grill & Brewery is a restaurant brewery with seating for 300-plus and a new mezzanine-level bar evoking the rich history of the former Lafayette Tap Room.

This old barn turned bakery has grown to a premier pizza stop, restaurant and store serving up fine foods all day long. The breakfast sandwiches are awesome, salads, sammies on house made bread, brick oven pizza and great diner options round off the can't miss menu. Make sure you sample some local beer and grab a loaf of bread and some pastries to go.
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.
Enjoy a comfortable, casual atmosphere, with great food and drinks. We have a full menu Thanksgiving Day plus daily specials, along with an assortment of handcrafted beers and great boutique bottled wine. Join us for happy hour daily from 3pm-7pm, with drink & appetizers.
Shango New Orleans Bistro/Wine Bar introduced many a Buffalonian to top notch southern cuisine with a pinch of imagination. This laid back University Heights mainstay has both fine wine and beer lists, and dishes out creative down-home grub with plenty of soul. Don't be afraid to go funky, but I wouldn't pass up the gumbo.
I’ll just come right out and say it, Trattoria Aroma is one of our favorite spots in the city. The food is consistently good or great. The menu is broad but well managed, with enough creativity to make it a fun read.
