Dobutsu, no matter how you pronounce it, comes out sounding like "yummmm!" Chef/owner James Roberts has that unique combination of training, talent and creativity that works in all walks of life. The food from start to finish is "innovative and delicious". We LOVE the daily change up on their steamed bun appetizer (the official food of SOB). The menu is heavily Asian influenced and long on seafood, but do not overlook the steak and pork chop if they are available. The restaurant decor is modern, "fresh" and comfortable. The fact that they have a beautiful, full-sized bar, great cocktails, and a nice beer selection really puts this place on the top of everyone's list in WNY.
This often overlooked fine dining establishment is one of the nicest setups downtown and a great place to get your fill of the great American steak if you are at the casino, Key Bank Center or any where downtown. They put on a mighty fine brunch as well, complete with bottomless mimosas.
Hot Mama's Canteen is the new Headquarters for HeadStone Heat Hot Sauce. We are a kitchen and bar featuring menu items ranging from classic pub food to some Buffalo and American favorites all with a HeadStone Heat twist.
Curly's has undergone a lot of transformation over the years. Famous for their Jerk Chicken and Black Bean soup for years, they have grown to include many new items that mix with old and this is now a great venue for all occasions - perfect for family, weekday lunch, romantic dinner, or a quick cocktail. Don't forget about their newish banquet facilities.
