Food Porn: Fiddle Heads

NOTE: Since we wrote this article, Fiddleheads has closed.

I went to Fiddle Heads, a lovely restaurant in downtown Buffalo, in November of 2008.  The menu is unique and has some combination’s that aren’t on your normal menu (at least what I’m use to eating).  But the goal of my time working in the Allentown area is to try out new foods.

I met up with my Aunt and Uncle and we started out with a couple drinks.  Now being a beer guy, the first thing I look for is what is on tap.

At Fiddle Heads: Nothing.

However, they did have a decent selection of bottles and I had myself a delicious Anchor Steam.  One of San Fransisco’s finest treats (way better then Rice A Roni).

We started the meal with a bruschetta style appetizer: sun dried tomato paste, diced black olives with artichokes, and spicy chick peas (as seen above).

I followed this up, with a delicious Stove Oven Pizzette, which had tomato slices and italian sausage (no picture).  Along with some soup, in which i tried tripe for the first time.  I won’t lie, I was grossed out by the thought of what it was.  But what didn’t win me over was the texture, reminded me of the fat on the end of steak (not my favorite).  Then the meal, I ordered:

Bacon wrapped, chili mango coconut stuffed shrimp, with rice and espresso BBQ sauce.

Overall the meal was amazing, really different then what I’m use to.  But really good food, good atmosphere (it was dead though) and great getting to spend time with the fam.

    Is Fiddlehead’s closed. I tried to make a reservation for Sunday brunch but the phone is temporarily disconnected. I live in St. Catharines, Canada, so cannot just drop by to find out. If it is permanently closed or at least for the next week could you recommend another place that is more or less similar for Sunday brunch. I know about betty’s but there is at least an hour wait.
    Thanks,

      as far as I know I believe they are closed for good. I was told there is already a new sign up, I’m not sure if it’s new owners or what but it looks like they are no longer Fiddle heads either way. I’ll post when I find out whats going in there and when.

      The Blue Monk on Elmwood just started offering a Sunday Brunch recently and the 31 Club also on Elmwood (close to Chippewa) offers one as well. I personally haven’t been to either but I have read good things.
