    »Left Bank

    First things first, this West Side restaurant doesn't overlook the Seine River—it is not even near water. Nonetheless, this American bistro is quickly becoming one of Buffalo's most popular restaurants thanks to brisk word-of-mouth advertising from happy customers. It is dimly lit, with a small candle atop an intimate table covered in a white tablecloth. Bold fabrics drape the windows, and the walls are cloaked in artwork. Some samples on the ever-changing menu may include delights such as Gorgonzola Fondue for two, pork loin alongside a Grand Marnier cranberry sauce or something simple like Ahi tuna tartar.

    »Essex Pub

    At first glance, it seems as if almost every hip place in Buffalo is housed in a building that dates back to last century. This space has history galore, its various incarnations were once mob hangout, diner, brewery and deli until it opened up as a pub in 1986. On the menu diners will find 'sammiches' and 'snackatizers' like wings, Reubens, beef on weck, etc. in addition to much more. Inside guests will find a pool table, jukebox and usually local favorite Flying Bison on tap. Overall a great place to start or finish the night.

    »Allen Street Hardware Store Cafe

    This restaurant was once a hardware store and now it has been converted into a well-managed, neighborhood spot that serves American comfort food with a twist. On the menu diners will find sandwiches, burgers, panini and salads, however these are definitely not your mother's homemade meals. For instance, the meatloaf here is inside a panini filled with pesto, Swiss and tomato or the burger made with lamb and served with a schmear of mint pesto. There are other standard choices as well, so don't fret, not everything is so eclectic. On Monday nights, check out their 'Backroom', where guests can hear live jazz, acoustic, open-mic, etc. after dinner.

    Located in a restored 19th-century house, this popular restaurant is noted for its warm and welcoming atmosphere. the breakfast menu features inviting selections like breakfast tacos and blueberry pancakes, and they also host Sunday brunches.

    »The Hatch

    Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner overlooking the Buffalo lighthouse at the Hatch, which has long been a fixture on the Buffalo waterfront. Breakfast includes typical breakfast fare, like eggs, bacon, and sausage. Lunch and dinner fare is simple: burgers, hot dogs, Italian sausage, a grilled chicken sandwich, and one of the best fried bologna sandwiches in Buffalo. Make sure you save room for dessert, as they also have a great selection of ice cream. Of course, the real reason you eat here is to enjoy the view of the Buffalo waterfront and the Erie basin Marina. You can eat indoors if you want, but most folks eat outdoors or under the covered picnic pavilion. Just watch out for the aggressive, hungry seagulls! - Christine A. Smyczynski
