O'Connell's Wows During Restaurant Week

O'Connell's Wows During Restaurant Week

Our final meal of Local Restaurant week was a weekend dinner at O’Connell’s American Bistro, a long overdue visit to a restaurant that has been on our wishlist for years.  Both Alli and I were looking for an offering that was something really creative.  Normally the restaurants will offer a small selection of their normal menu but what stood out about O’Connell’s offering was how they really tried something different.

Brick Oven’s French-trained Chef Brings a New Flavor to Buffalo’s Irish District

Brick Oven’s French-trained Chef Brings a New Flavor to Buffalo’s Irish District

Open less than two months, Brick Oven Bistro & Deli has already made an impact on Buffalo’s vibrant dining scene. The restaurant, located at 904 Abbott Road in South Buffalo, has quickly become known for its comfortable atmosphere, extensive craft beer and wine selection, and an incredible mix of tempting menu options.

Chef Andrew Murtha, who learned the trade under some of the best chefs in Buffalo and Philadelphia, is the man behind the menu. “Everything we do, we do well,” said Chef Murtha. “Everything is made from scratch and no one is going to be scared away by odd flavor combos. I encourage everyone to come in and try something new!”

Lagerhaus 95 Brings Good Food and Beer to the Arena District

Lagerhaus 95 Brings Good Food and Beer to the Arena District

If you are planning on going to an event at First Niagara Center, there is unfortunately a lack of good dining options within walking distance.  On top of that, the restaurants that we do enjoy (Swannie House, WJ Morrisey’s) are usually insanely packed in the time leading up to any event.  So when we first heard about Lagerhaus 95 and their gastro-pub style menu was opening right off Cobblestone on Perry St, we were pretty excited.  Everyone knows there are plenty of good restaurants in Allentown, North Buffalo and the Elmwood Village, but in this area of downtown Buffalo there is definitely a lack of quality.

Kung Food is a Welcome Addition to Main Street

Kung Food is a Welcome Addition to Main Street

Last weekend some friends and I went out to lunch on a mission for some fried chicken.  We originally were planning on going to Nette’s Fried Chicken but unfortunately they were closed, so we had to make a change of plans at the last minute.  So after a quick audible, we went down the street to the newly opened Kung Food (in-between Shango and Ming Cafe), a Japanese/Thai restaurant that’s also serving Bubble Tea.  We walked into the cafe on a Sunday afternoon and found a nice sized crowd.  The owner greeted us immediately and was very friendly throughout our entire meal.  They were excited to see some new faces and were excited to talk about their new restaurant and what they are trying to offer to the downtown area.  They also offered a $1 discount for our orders if we
