  • Coco


    Coco Bar and Bistro is one of my new favorite places in Buffalo, and it’s all thanks to Local Restaurant Week. Coco first got on my radar when they featured their first Vegan Prix Fixe dinner.

    Lloyd Taco Factory

    Lloyd Tacos find a permanent home on Hertel and the neighborhood is oh-so-happy. (*Featured Image is from our friends at Buffalo Rising because it’s hard to beat) Alright, it’s me who is oh-so-happy, but Hertel is my neighborhood, so I’m not technically wrong. I went to the soft opening of Lloyd Taco Factory at 1503 Hertel Ave(…)

  • Buffalo’s Broken Yolk

    Buffalo’s Broken Yolk

    West Seneca always surprises me with some really great food, and Buffalo’s Broken Yolk has kept that tradition going! You’ve probably heard about Broken Yolk already from some of its outstanding write-ups in reviews in Step Out Buffalo, Gusto, and the gazillion pictures and raving recommendations posted on Yelp.  Those reviews definitely turned me on(…)

    The Lodge Bar + Grill

I’d heard of Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery through word-of-mouth, and no wonder: it’s too good not to be talking about! Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery on 807 Millersport Hwy in Amherst, NY isn’t too far from where I work during the day, so I placed a to-go order during lunch as I looked through Urbanspoon.com.
