  • Osteria 166

    Osteria 166

    Osteria 166 is a sexy and sleek place in Downtown Buffalo that offers an excellent bite to eat. Osteria 166 reminds me of that ever popular Frank Sinatra song: “Nice work if you can get it, and if you get it, won’t you tell me how!” During a pasta craving on a Friday night, I(…)

  • Aguacates Mexican Bar and Grill

    Aguacates Mexican Bar and Grill

    Elmwood Village Vegetarian El Agave was one of my favorite restaurants in the Village. It was cheap, the servers were nice, the food was good, and the setting was intimate. We don’t need to go into details as to why it’s not here anymore, but its replacement, Aguacates Mexican Bar and Grill, is a great(…)

    Essex St. Pub

    Elmwood Village Vegetarian My husband and I drove into Buffalo after nearly a two-year hiatus. We were tired, we were stressed, but damnit we were happy to be home! We celebrated with dinner at a Buffalo restaurant. Essex St. Pub has been around since before I left, yet I never made it in. While chatting(…)

    Allen Burger Venture

    Allentown Vegetarian Vegans and vegetarians don’t have to shy away from Allen Burger Venture as the menu is prepared for alternative eaters. Vegetarian burgers are always tricky for me. So many restaurants cop out by throwing a frozen soy bean patty in the microwave and calling that good. That doesn’t work for me as I(…)

  • Lloyd Taco Factory

    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(…)
