Buffalo for Graduation Dinner

Looking for a suggestion in Buffalo to celebrate son's college grad from UB. We will be a group of about 10 people and none of us are drinkers. Son likes steak, seafood, or italian. Don't want to spend a fortune and would like something unique to Buffalo, so not a chain.

I guess somewhere where the entress fun about $20 - 30 per person.

While I have time, its always best to plan ahead.

  1. I see that you're not getting a lot of help on this one.

    Assuming you're willing to drive into the city, I'd recommend:

    Tempo (French I believe they call it - look at the menu - on Delaware Ave)
    Lombardo's (Italian on Hertel Ave)
    Fiamma Steak (Steaks on Hertel Ave - might be slightly above your price range)
    Prime 490 (Steaks on Rhode Island - slightly cheaper than Fiamma)

    Mulberry's Cafe in Lackawanna would be a somewhat farther drive - maybe 25 minutes from UB North Campus - but it has fantastic, truly homemade and authentic Italian food that's very reasonably priced, and they do take reservations for parties of 6 or more.

    There are some posts on this site about all of these places, I believe.
