Buffalo - early NYE dinner and Jan 1 brunch with baby?

bunnylicious Dec 14, 2012 08:14 AM

Hi everyone,

Hubby, baby (10 mos) and I will be heading to Buffalo from Toronto for NYE. We decided we needed a mini getaway and some good shopping too :) Any suggestions of places for a yummy, early NYE dinner for the three of us, and a nice brunch the next day? We like pretty much any cuisine, and anything goes as long as it's not too fancy.

I've perused the boards and Shango and Left Bank seem interesting, but I'm open to any sugestions!

    Shango is definitely good choice for dinner and I have heard good things about their brunch though I have never been.

    We just saw in the paper that The Irishman on Main Street is having "New Year's in Dublin." They do champagne, etc. at 7, when it's midnight in Dublin. A fun idea, I think.

        Did you go? Would love to hear a report. We went elsewhere, but might think about doing the Dublin thing next year.

          Saly, we didn't end up going, had to cancel our little getaway. But we will probably be going down in February, so I will make sure to try then :) Happy new year!
