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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Authentic Chinese food in the inner villages of Buffalo, served in the traditional style.
In Orchard Park New York, just down the street from the stadium of the Buffalo Bills, is a fabulous family style restaurant serving all the local favorites.
If Buffalo is known for one thing (other than snow and the Bills), it is chicken wings. There are many places throughout the city where you can get good wings. Truly great wings, on the other hand, is much harder to find. Hidden away in a Knights of Columbus hall in Kenmore, you will find a place that serves the best.
