Buffalo's restaurant scene may surprise visitors. While the city is known for its pub grub like beef on weck and chicken wings, a number of restaurants offer a more sophisticated dining experience and eclectic menus designed by well-known chefs.
Long-time favorites such as EB Green's and Oliver's continue to provide excellent service and cuisine that is perfectly prepared, with an impressive wine and cocktail list to match. With a rich Italian heritage, Buffalo has a wide variety of Italian food, including Salvatore's Italian Gardens and San Marco Ristorante, two elegant restaurants that are ideal for a night of fine dining.
Newcomer Mike A's is set in the jaw-dropping Hotel Lafayette, an architectural gem that features art-deco decor and a five-star dining experience.
