Buffalo Without Borders TO GO

Mon, Nov 1
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Prices starting at: 250
International Institute of Buffalo • 864 Delaware Ave, Buffalo 14209


Our Buffalo Without Borders carry-out event will take place over three Monday evenings, 10/18, 10/25, and 11/1 from 5pm-7pm. This season’s featured restaurants are Lime House (Burmese), Khoshmazeh Afghan Cuisine (Afghan), and Garden of Eden (South Sudan). As with our prior seasons, the re-imagined event will consist of three carry-out cuisines for two, local goodies, and a multi-page cultural information and activity packet that features each of the countries.

A Buffalo Without Borders ticket is so much more than a dinner for two, each ticket sale directly uplifts our clients, connecting them with local resources and empowering them to establish their own security and independence. 

Every ticket also supports the local chefs who craft the traditional dinners and the local businesses who are filling up our carry-out bags. AND every bag purchased, every cultural packet read, every story shared is an act to embrace our new neighbors who come to live and thrive in our city!

Buffalo Without Borders TO GO is a series showcasing refugee and immigrant restaurateurs featuring festive evenings of carry-out cuisine, cultural activities and much more!

Buffalo Without Borders TO GO will occur in Fall 2021 as a three-night series, 10/18, 10/25, and 11/1.


Fall 2021 Restaurant Line-up:

Monday, October 18th – Lime House: Our season openers are a colorful Williamsville favorite, offering Burmese specialties joined by dishes like sushi, edamame, and dumplings.
