A contemporary restaurant with a large bar space, New American cuisine and the game on TV at the bar.
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.
Banchetti by Rizzo's

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.
Cole's Restaurant & Bar
One of Buffalo's favorite taverns, Cole's has some of the best wings in town and always serves up a great selection of local craft beers.
SOB Says: I had a hard time finding the words to describe the type of menu Betty’s offers. It’s a bit of [...]
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.
Resurrected from the charred remains of an old shot and beer tavern popular after the war, the phoenix took flight [...]

The Dapper Goose
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.
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.
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.
The opportunity to check out the magnificent Richardson Olmsted building is reason enough to dine here. The good news is the food is spot on and the cocktails most excellent. Get here earl, grab a bevy and enjoy some top notch lounging or go exploring. The dining areas a laid out throughout various rooms, hallways and vibes on one floor.

The food and service at 800 Maple are consistently good and the traffic consistently strong. Sure and steady is the program here where customers know what to expect and come back often.
Soho Burger Bar
Located in the heart of downtown Buffalo the Soho Burger Bar offers great burgers and so much more. Sure they grind their own ground beef and have awesome burgers, including a special burger a day on locally baked fresh rolls. For the none carnivores they also have a veggie burger and an Ahi Tuna burger. Not if the mood for a burger? Don't fret. Soho Burger Bar also offers great salads, fish tacos, and a fish fry every Friday. On top of all that this is one of the hottest bars in town and definitely the premier roof-top bar on the strip.
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 bar-restaurant has a “big city” feel to it, with its high ceilings, large lounge area, minimalist artwork, modern furnishings, and open kitchen. It’s a grand stage, to be sure. The perfect spot to relax with a beverage and people watch the hotel clientele or indulge in a great meal- breakfast, lunch or dinner. The menu is best described as New American with a Buffalo flair. Experience dishes like crispy cauliflower, Buffalo popcorn, housemade pierogi, a poke bowl, local Flat #12 Mushrooms, Wood-fired entrees and more.

The Black Sheep Restaurant & Bar
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".

You have to sample the local pork, we love the beet salad when available, brunch is awesome as are Ellen's desserts.
