Daniel's Restaurant Is Still Among The Best

Daniel's Restaurant Is Still Among The Best

I’m not sure how this happened, but we’ve never had a meal at Daniel’s. Alli and I have wanted to visit this quiet restaurant in the village of Hamburg for years but we usually got distracted by something new. When Alli’s parents suggested taking us to Daniel’s to celebrate our two year anniversary, we were really excited. Since we started the blog, we’ve had plenty of friends and fans telling us how great the food and service is.

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.
