ICYLUAR, Local Restaurant Week is the best thing that’s ever happened to us. Like, ever. Hundreds of local independent restaurants all over Western New York put out amazing dishes, trios of dishes, and meals for two all starting at just $20.16. It’s ~the best week of the year~.
Of course, there are tried and true seasoned vets among the list of participating restaurants who have been consistently serving us the meals and deals that dreams are made of season after season. We’ve compiled a list of all these great restaurants who have been in the Local Restaurant Week game for at least ten -count ‘em, TEN- seasons…and folks trust us when we say these are the ones you wanna put at the top of your list. Looking to try a restaurant thats brand new to LRW? More on that here. Happy eating!
