Thanksgiving is a foodie's holiday and Buffalo Niagara is a foodie's region! Now that the turkey has been eaten and your kitchen has been cleaned, it's time to avoid the hastle and go out to dinner tonight.

So, which restaurants around town are the favorite go-to spots of our InBN team?

Alexandra Williams – Executive Assistant/Investor Relations Coordinator

Break'N Eggs Creperie is a locally owned family restaurant located on Main Street in Williamsville. Your food is prepared in front of your eyes. The food is delicious, and the protion sizes are perfect. This place is my favorite breakfast restaurant! Shango Bistro and Wine Bar -  inspired by the soulful cuisine of New Orleans. Shango embodies the spirit of a true neighborhood bistro – offering a fun atmosphere paired with delicious food & drinks.

Sarah Larson – Marketing Manager

Lake Effect Diner for breakfast, This Little Pig for lunch, and Mahony's for dinner.

Greg Pokriki – Content and Digital Marketing Associate

Lake Effect Diner for breakfast (Sarah showed me—thanks!). Kentucky Greg’s has incredible barbeque. Good Tymes South is a great dive with all homemade food and one of the best burgers in Buffalo. My favorite is Italian food, so I’ll go with Casa Antica in that category.

Tom Kucharski – President and CEO

Hutch’s for some fine dining!

Jenna Kavanaugh – COO

Dina’s in Ellicottville for breakfast, Taffy’s for lunch, Left Bank for dinner…and Lake Effect Ice Cream for dessert!

Carolyn Powell – Business Development Manager

My favorite Buffalo Niagara eatery is The Old Orchard.  It is a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere that you can enjoy a delicious dinner in a quaint setting. 

Casi Hall – Graphic Designer

This is a tough one... Buffalo Niagara is definitely a food-lovers region! I would say one of my favorite spots to go with family is Bar Bill Tavern in East Aurora for crispy delicious wings and a cold beer. If I could choose a #2 it would be The Grange in Hamburg. Every time I go there I'm blown away by how delicious and flavorful the brick oven pizzas are!

Lorrie Abounader – Business Development Manager

Tough one…too many choices.  I’ll go with my standby, Left Bank.  Close behind is Trattoria Aroma. 

Alan Rosenhoch – Director of Business Development

Amy’s Place for breakfast and Left Bank for date night.

Anthony Ciccarelli – Research Associate

Arriba Tortilla, East Aurora NY.

Matthew Hubacher – Research Manager

Bacchus: Fine dining in the heart of the entertainment district.  Equally good for a pre-game drink and appetizer or a full-blown celebration of a special occasion.  Bacchus is certainly my “go-to” upscale restaurant and it has yet to disappoint!
