O'Briens Bringing Great Meats to the Southtowns

O'Briens Bringing Great Meats to the Southtowns

Located in the village of Hamburg in between Tina’s Italian Kitchen and Coyote Cafe, O’Briens is part steakhouse and part butcher/deli/specialty shop.  All of their beef is hormone-free and from a local farm located in North Collins; the animals are all pasture raised and then finished with corn feed from a farm in Geneva.  They supervise the entire process, have their own butcher and ensure the quality of their product from start to finish.  Locavores are sure to be pleased and the shortened supply chain also helps them keep competitive with their prices.

Brick Oven’s French-trained Chef Brings a New Flavor to Buffalo’s Irish District

Open less than two months, Brick Oven Bistro & Deli has already made an impact on Buffalo’s vibrant dining scene. The restaurant, located at 904 Abbott Road in South Buffalo, has quickly become known for its comfortable atmosphere, extensive craft beer and wine selection, and an incredible mix of tempting menu options.

Chef Andrew Murtha, who learned the trade under some of the best chefs in Buffalo and Philadelphia, is the man behind the menu. “Everything we do, we do well,” said Chef Murtha. “Everything is made from scratch and no one is going to be scared away by odd flavor combos. I encourage everyone to come in and try something new!”

Elm Street Bakery is Worth the Drive

Elm Street Bakery is Worth the Drive

Alli and I really really love East Aurora….there I said it.  As city residents there’s an unnecessary shame in admitting that you really like the suburbs, or at least certain aspects of the suburbs.  No, were not planning on settling down and having 2.5 kids, but the small village of East Aurora is incredibly cozy with several restaurants and shops that we really enjoy, add bars within walking distance and we’re sold.  This last Saturday was our second visit to Elm Street Bakery, the first was an impromptu visit based on curiosity after hearing all the buzz about the place.  Unfortunately, we had dinner plans later in the day, so we limited our first trip to just two slices of their wood fire pizza but promised that we’d return the following week.  After we finished our second meal there this weekend, Alli and I realized we have found a new favorite place to eat.
