September & October 2014

Our mission: Construct a monthly list of restaurants, food trucks, cafes, pubs and breweries, etc. that have opened in the previous month. Instead of undertaking the nearly impossible task of predicting which restaurants will actually open in the upcoming month, we decided this strategy would be more valuable for everyone involved. With bureaucrats, bankers and bean counters, unpredictable weather and contractors involved, it’s hard to say when a restaurant is opening until it is already, in fact open.

Disclaimer: We recommend you call ahead to be sure you’ll find an open restaurant upon your arrival. Good Luck! Drop us a line at if we missed any September/ or October openings/closings. 



Buffalo’s Broken Yolk

Neighborhood: West Seneca

3100 Transit Road, West Sene​ca, NY 14224  |  (716) 656-YOLK

Cuisine: Southwestern/American, Breakfast

Buffalo’s Broken Yolk offers a unique Southwestern taste to breakfast that you won’t find anywhere else, especially with their signature item: The Broken Yolk. It comes with home fries cooked with spicy chorizo, onions, green peppers, and melted cheddar jack cheese topped with two over easy eggs, yolks broken by request.


Dog é Style

Neighborhood: Downtown Business District

128 Genesee St, Buffalo, New York 14202 | (716) 256-1560

Cuisine: Gourmet Hot Dogs

“Designed to resemble an industrial shipping container, the restaurant’s modern, minimalist décor is also a switch from the greasy spoon feel of a Louie’s or Ted’s location. Upstairs, a garage door at the front-facing end of the restaurant opens up – allowing diners who still want to eat their dogs in the elements the chance to do so.”



Neighborhood: Cobblestone District

211 South Park Ave, Buffalo, New York 14204 

Cuisine: American, Sausages

Ballyhoo is keeping it simple with delicious homemade sausages, Jam sessions and Carbon-a-teas in a low key, fun bar atmosphere. You’ve got to try these links and drinks in the Cobblestone district!

Sadly, the pasta peddler has moved out of their former location at the Horsefeathers Market. On the plus side, they’ve opened a bigger location with Blackbird Sweets on Hertel Avenue. The two merchants are sharing the space, selling their delicious goodies side by side. The new spot has plenty of space to sit and have a cupcake or two after picking up some freshly made pasta.


Buffalo Supper Club

2179 Niagara Street, Buffalo, New York 14207 | (716) 875-2939

Cafe 59 on Allen has expanded it’s operation to Porter Ave. where a simple, to the point, delicious lunch spot awaits. The space is small and open, with a tiny outdoor seating area with a couple tables where we ate.
