Brick Oven Bistro & Deli Adds Outdoor Dining to Menu

Brick Oven Bistro & Deli Adds Outdoor Dining to Menu

Diners visiting the Brick Oven Bistro & Deli have a big decision to make — and it has nothing to do with the delicious items on the menu. With the addition of a new and spacious patio, customers are now faced with the question of dining inside or out?

The patio features six tables surrounded by colorful planters and offers the same menu offered to diners who choose to dine indoors. South Buffalo Alive, a nonprofit organization involved in the preservation and beautification of the neighborhood, provided planters and landscaping assistance.

60 Years Later, Red Top is Still Great

60 Years Later, Red Top is Still Great

The restaurant is 67 years old and there haven’t been a lot of updates. There is no dining room, just a covered outdoor dining area with a couple picnic tables and their cash register definitely shows some age. They only take cash and their menu is hand written on a dry erase board and nothing on the menu costs more then $5.15. We arrived on a rainy Saturday afternoon, and aside from being a little chilly from the wind, the outdoor dining was dry and clean (ish).
