Buffalo, New York

HI, all,

Any suggestions for dining in Buffalo? Will be going for a week for business and have never been.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Both of these sites will be useful to you...
    This one has been around a long time. It's pretty comprehensive and includes reviews from everyday people.
    This site (which I happen to work for) focuses on restaurants that fall within the city limits. Please feel free to email me through my site, I give restaurant suggestions to visitors through email often.

    Just make sure you get to see a little of the real Buffalo, not just the mall/hotel/airport part!

      Can't find a way to search on the Buffalo rising website. A group of us are heading down to the Amherst area for a girls night out soon and are looking for a well prepared meal, not deep fried or gigantic portions or things like burgers and wings. I passed Le Metro bakery cafe in Williamsville the last time we were there and it looks like our kind of place. Has anyone eaten there? We always end up in Carraba's because the food is okay (just way too much) and the staff is very friendly but we would like to try somewhere else. One of us has a gluten allergy too. Any suggestions?

        Are you into sushi and Asian-inspired food? If so, you should head to SeaBar on Main St. in Williamsville, just down the street from LeMetro. They have more than sushi (I had incredible ceviche served with fresh tortilla chips), and it would be a good choice for someone with a gluten allergy.

          Thanks for the suggestion. I love seafood, sushi and asian but I'm not sure that everyone in our group does. The ceviche sounds yummy.
          Any other suggestions? And is Le Metro any good?

    2. Are you on an expense account for the visit?

      1. Had a terrific time at Toro recently
        The pappardelle dish with olives was nice but seems to be off the menu.

        1. Daniel' s is the best restaurant in the area. Other than that, it depends on what type of food you want.

          1. If you feel like you have to get chicken wings, don't go to the Anchor Bar. Go to Duff's, in Amherst, at the intersection of Millersport Hwy and Sheridan Drive.
