Bridal Shower in Buffalo, NY

jackieparis Sep 30, 2008 01:29 PM

My best friend s getting married in Buffalo. We are trying to find a nice restaurant to have a bridal shower brunch. We are looking for something with excellent food and a nice atmosphere. Do you have any ideas of a place that could accommodate 30-40 ladies for brunch?

    Where are you all staying? Consult http://www.cse.buffalo.edu/restaurant... for reviews.
    Lots of places, it just depends on what you want to eat and where most of the people are from geographically.

      Thank you very much for the website. Most people live in the suburbs. The bride lives in Depew. Any suggestions?

        I'd recommend Sonoma Grill. They do that sort of thing very well.

          Thanks.I just looked at their website and it doesn't look very nice. We were actually thinking of the Left Bank for brunch but we may want to lower costs a little.

            Left Bank is very nice - parking is a problem and it isn't in the best of neighborhoods, but it certainly is a good place. I would wonder if they can accommodate a large group -which for the size of the restaurant - your group would be.
            Sonoma is located in the Lord Amherst complex and is very nice - go look.

      I have brunched at the Left Bank and found the food quite good. I have friends who have had events at Le Metro at the Walker Center mall in Williamsville and they were very happy with it.

        Thanks for the suggestion. Someone said that Le Metro closed. Is it still open?

            Le Metro's city location (formerly on Elmwood) is closed and has been for quite some time. Their suburban location is still open.

              FWIW, the Elmwood and Utica location is now called Mode and serves a similar menu to the former Le Metro. Haven't had a chance to try it yet....
