In the land of chicken wings, the New York Times found love in a hopeless place.

Er, well, they found something. On a recent trip to Buffalo, writer Charu Suri wound up at one of Buffalo’s newest restaurants, Root & Bloom. “Tucked at the back of a brick building between a barber parlor and an art gallery, it has a casual, hippie-ish vibe” Suri wrote, describing the current seating situation on the outdoor gazebo.

Among the items Suri was impressed with, the cauliflower florets and nachos made with “quinoa meat”, cashew cream cheese, and guacamole topped the list.
