Bill Rapaport's Buffalo Restaurant Guide

SEND US A REVIEW!

Last Update: Monday, 14 September 2015

Note: NEW or UPDATED material is highlighted

[9/14/15]
It is with some sadness, but also some relief, that I announce the closing of my Buffalo Restaurant Guide.

I began it in 1988—long before the Web was a glimmer in anyone's eye—as a 2-page handout for an international conference that I hosted at UB.

I am gratified that it has grown to have a loyal following and many reviewers. But I have retired from UB, moved out of Buffalo, and now have other obligations to fulfill.

In addition, there are now many other Buffalo restaurant websites and Facebook pages.

To my readers and reviewers, many thanks! I apologize for a large backlog of as-yet-unpublished reviews. I will contact those reviewers privately and urge them to send their reviews elsewhere.

The guide will remain accessible on the Web unless its host, the UB Department of Computer Science & Engineering, decides otherwise.

Bon appetit!

-Bill

PLEASE SEND US A REVIEW!!

Just send email to Bill Rapaport at rapaport@buffalo.edu
with Subject = "RESTAURANT REVIEW"

(clicking on the button, or my name, or my email above will do this for you automatically;
but, if you omit that "Subject" line, your email will very likely disappear into my mailer's spam mailbox :-().


If possible, please include the following information:


REVIEWING POLICIES

  1. I regret that anonymous reviews cannot be accepted.

  2. I reserve the right to lightly edit all reviews.

    • I will publish as is, but flag, reviews that require more than a light editing!

  3. And I do not (knowingly) publish reviews that have appeared elsewhere (e.g., Urban Spoon, Yelp, etc.)

  4. Policy on negative reviews:

  5. Policy on old reviews:


GRAMMAR NOTES:

For general notes on grammar, spelling, and punctuation, see:

  1. "Some Rules of Thumb about Grammatical Issues" (§4 of my "How to Write").
  2. Paul Brians's "Common Errors in English Usage"

AND REMEMBER…

A "compliment" is something nice that you say about the restaurant.
A "complement" is food that goes well with other food. :-)

A "dessert" is a sweet food you eat at the end of a meal.
A "desert" is a hot, sandy geographical location. :-)

And please take this quick multiple-choice test:
Which of these is the correct spelling of "definitely"?
(Note: Each of these has appeared in a submitted review!)
(Hint:  The answer should be self-evident from the question :-)

  1. defenintely
  2. defiantly
  3. definately
  4. definatly
  5. definently
  6. definetly
  7. definietly
  8. definitely
  9. definitley
  10. defintely

And, although I still insist that ‘panini’ is the plural of ‘panino’
(‘panini’ means "sandwiches", so saying ‘paninis’ is exactly like saying ‘sandwicheses’),
I'm about ready to give up on trying to correct the mistaken American usage of it as a singular:
