While we love to look back on the past year’s opening, closings, best new restaurants, and most popular events, nothing compares to the excitement of what’s to come.

Well get excited Buffalo, because there’s already a stacked list of bars, restaurants, bakeries, breweries and much more working on opening in 2022. From Orchard Park (like a lot of them) to Amherst and Buffalo, there are tons of new openings to look forward to. Here’s a list of exciting WNY restaurants opening in 2022!
