If you got to this site because of a link that was once printed in The Buffalo News,
you should really begin at the homepage:

The Buffalo area has a large number of very good restaurants. This guide lists:


History.


Structure of the Guide.

The list has 3 parts:

  1. An alphabetical listing of all the restaurants, with details & reviews.

  2. A list by name only, organized into categories by cuisine.
  3. A list by name only, organized into categories by location.


Reservations and Hours.


Gourmet/Ethnic Food Stores.

The area has many excellent gourmet/ethnic food stores. One large one is: Premier Gourmet (supermarket-sized, with an adjoining wine and liquor store of equal size; 3904 Maple Rd. (in the North Bailey neighborhood), Amherst; 716-877-3574).

[WHN] recommends:

[BL, 5/08] recommends "BuffaloFoods.com" ("We ship Buffalo's favorite food items to anywhere in the USA").
I have also recently [4/10] learned of a similar service, "Made in Buffalo".

[MRT, 2/04] recommends Globe Market.

[CSC, 9/01] says: "I've been in the food service business for a while and discovered that ‘Chinatowns’ or their regional equivalents are not only a great source for hard to find produce and condiment, but the cheapest spices (I can get the same quantity/quality anise star at Lee's Oriental Gift and Food (3325 Bailey Ave., Buffalo; 836-7100) for $1 as I would get from McCormick for $15). Also great is Williams-Sonoma (Walden Galleria, Cheektowaga; 651-0057), if only for the Bourbon vanilla paste, and D'Artagnan (through mailorder). Still, my favorite is Guercio and Sons (250 Grant St., Buffalo; 882-7935)." [WHN, 2/10] supplies a link to the following articles discussing Guercio's: "WNY Italian, As Cooked At Santasiero's, Built At Guercio's" and "WNY Italian, Built At Guercio's, Or Cooked At Santasiero's". (Come to think of it, these may be nearly identical :-)


Feedback.

I hope this list contributes to the enjoyment of your stay in the area. Please send comments, corrections, suggestions, and reviews to me:
