Ahhh Local Restaurant Week… a wonderful, delicious time that comes around twice a year and let’s us try some of the best restaurants in Western New York for $20 and change. It’s amazing. It’s glorious. It’s a lot of food. Wear elastic-waist pants.
Each season more and more great restaurants are added to the pot of participants. Meaning our our must-try checklists get longer and longer. Lucky for you, we’ve got the full list of participating restaurants that are brand new this year right here… alphabetically…with their addresses AND general areas. Because we like you. If you’re looking for a restaurant that’s been around the LRW block a time or to check out our Tried & True Guide. Happy Local Restaurant Week!
