Do you watch No Reservations?
Watch it on monday the 7th of Spetember. ?
Do like Tony...go explore the city you live it. Fcuk Applebees, Olive Garden(never been there by the way or Red Slobster) and check out the smaller home town places and support them...
some say Panos(last time i ate there it was terrible)
SeaBar( I adore Mike Andrzejewski ..in my mind one of Buffalo's best)
Hutch's(have not been there in years but been around for ages and Hutch is another great guy)
There is an indian place up on Niagara Falls Blvd near UB that i cant remember the name of that is fantastic.
Any place Koni is at...he is the master and makes the best Asian food.
Wegmans in Rochester(Pittsford Store) This place makes the other Wegmans look like the red headed step child. Best what i cal QSR or pick up and go section. Sushi here is KILLER.
The Old Pink...3am steak sandwich
Old Man River
John and Marys
Asa Ramson House
Butterwood(desserts...i actually know the owner)
and you have to go to Fanny's once in your life ..just for the the decor alone
Thats all i can remember off the top of my head.....
