Brother's Is Serving Homemade Buffalo Comfort Food

Brother's Is Serving Homemade Buffalo Comfort Food

For the last month my in-laws have been raving about how awesome the food was at Brothers Restaurant and Pub in East Aurora.  I was skeptical, what exactly was going to be different about this place? I love pub food like most Buffalo-ians and trust their opinion on restaurants, but how good/different can a pizza roll really be?  Last week, Alli and I made the trip into our favorite suburb to see what the fuss was all about.  The best part about going out to eat with family is being able to get a little sample of everything, which is exactly what we did on this trip.

Woody's Beach Club is a Hidden Gem on Lake Erie

Woody's Beach Club is a Hidden Gem on Lake Erie

When I found out Woody’s Beach Club had made the top 10 list for WGRZ’s Favorite Restaurants or WNY, I was shocked just like many of the viewers.  I had actually never heard of the restaurant before watching Chef Krista Van Wagner talk about their fresh queso fresco and guacamole and dining out on the beach.  But after learning it was owned and operated by the Curtain Family (Dug’s Dive, The Steer, Lake Effect Diner), I’m even more surprised that it took me this long to hear about the restaurant.  They just opened in 2011 and just started up for the summer a few weeks ago so Alli and I decided to head down on a lazy evening last week.

Mike A's Raises the Bar for Fine Dining in Buffalo

I’ve had over 300 meals in Western New York and while several were very good this meal was excellent and convinced me that a change is coming.  What Mike Andrzejewski and Chef Edward Forster have brought to Buffalo is a true fine dining experience that stands alone and will hopefully set the bar for the area’s best restaurants.

George's Has Good Food, Great Memories

George's Has Good Food, Great Memories

I grew up only a couple miles away from George’s Hot Dog Stand and have fond memories of the place from my childhood.  Even though I haven’t been back in a while, I am well aware of their menu and how diehard their fans are.  I know many people who look forward to the first day they open their doors for the season.  Since I’ve moved into the city, our dining in the Southtowns in general has dropped off and I’ve been wondering when I’d get another chance to go back to George’s.

Buffalo Bites Food Tours is the brainchild of Buffalo native Laura Reed, who discovered the uniqueness and excitement of a great food tour almost by accident.
