Restaurant Week 2010

October 4th through October 10th is Local Restaurant Week here in WNY.   

(There is a direct link below to some of the menus of participating restaurants)

The locally, owned independent operator is the backbone of our community, and provides an essential element to the quality of life here. When we talk about what makes Western New York a great place to live, food and restaurants are often mentioned at the forefront. Before Art, Architecture, Music, our local Food culture is deeply embedded in our psyche. Many of the legacy food service operations in our area have family roots that continue today.

Money spent with an independent operators stays in our community. It is a reinvestment in what sustains our identity and we are grateful for you patronage.
