I was in Clarence New York meeting a relative for brunch. One of the places suggested was the Campfire Grill. I liked what I saw on their menu and decided to give it a try. This was a great decision, as their food is phenomenal!
After doing some Christmas caroling, my friends and I had lunch at French Pub together, a favorite restaurant of one of the group. French Pub is a sports bar in the suburbs of Buffalo that my friend has been going to since the 90s. When asked for a dish recommendation, he said everything on the menu. Based on my experience, he was not exaggerating.
Lucia on the Lake
An Italian restaurant with exquisite food and scenic views can be found in south towns of Buffalo, right on the shores of Lake Erie. I know of people who go there every week for their Sunday brunch. I was not there on a Sunday, but I did enjoy a good evening meal at Lucia on the Lake.
Summer is for Ice Cream
I love ice cream. I’ll go out of my way to have it. Or make excuses to go out and get some. But sometimes, I'll just see a place while driving by and I'll stop to get some. I've written about my favorite places to get ice cream in DC. Here is a collection of other ice cream parlors I've visited in the past couple of years.
Experience great comfort food and the history of Buffalo in this lovely little pub right next across the street of the Buffalo Zoo, in Delaware Park.
Rosie’s Handcrafted Ice Cream
In East Aurora, New York there's a hot new ice cream parlor serving house made ice cream. I journeyed there, about 20 minutes south of Buffalo, to see if it lives up to the hype. It most certainly does.
Diners Across the U.S.
I love eating at diners. They are not only great places to get comfort food, but also a good way to experience a city's local culture. Over the years, I have been to many diners at many places throughout the US. Here are my favorites.
Connors Hot Dog Stand
For over 75 years, when Western New Yorkers go to the beach they get their food at Connors Hot Dog Stand. It is a Buffalo summer tradition.
Local Kitchen and Bar
High quality local cuisine can be found at this farm to table pub in the heart of Buffalo's theater district.
The place to go in Buffalo for wings, Duffs has been a local institution since 1946.
