About Buffalo, NY Restaurants

In the midst of Buffalo's snowy winters, the city's eateries provide respite and hot, comforting eats to hungry travelers. When the weather warms up, many restaurateurs extend their dining space to outdoor patios and sidewalks that allow patrons to soak up the sights and sounds of the city. Regardless of the season, Buffalo's hungry population and steady stream of tourists create a need for serviceable sandwich shops and notable spots for fine dining. Buffalo's restaurant scene rises to the occasion and combines the best of homespun tradition with International flare and cutting edge culinary technique. Its premier steakhouse, E.B. Green's has received national recognition in recent years. Meanwhile, the city's specialty sandwich, "beef on weck," is served in numerous eateries and bars – it's another can't miss. Stop by Charlie the Butcher's Main Street lunch counter for this local delicacy. Popular Italian kitchens, ranging from homestyle spaghetti joints such as Chef's in downtown Buffalo to high-end dining rooms like Ristorante Lombardo, dominate the market for ethnic food. However, opportunities for sampling other cuisines abound, whether it's Polish, German, Indian or Thai you're craving.
