Alone in Buffalo

I will be in Buffalo one weeknight on business. When I travel alone, I like to eat where I can sit at the bar and get good food. I will be staying close to downtown. Any kind of food at any price, as long as it's good. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. I'd be glad to help out if you can give me an idea of cuisine preferences and where you'll be staying.

    1. It does kind of depend on what you're looking for.

      Great food and good wine? I'd go to Hutch's (Delaware Ave). The food is always great, and there's usually a friendly crowd eating and/or drinking at the bar in the separate back room. Mother's (Virginia Place) is another upscale spot with an upbeat bar area, and the food is generally very good.

      If you're a serious beer drinker, Cole's (Elmwood Ave) has some incredible offerings on tap and a really good burger (though I wouldn't venture too far from the standard bar fare on their menu).

      If you really want to try good Buffalo wings, Gabriel's Gate (Allen St) or Ulrich's (Carlton St) have solid offerings in the downtown area, with decent bars you can eat at.

        I've had some excellent solo meals sitting at the bar at Bacchus, which is right downtown on Chippewa.
