An Evening With Nelson Starr and TrueBlueBuffalo…


Me, Dino and Nelson

In late May I had the privilege of bringing Nelson Starr and his friend Nate Peracciny (from True Blue Buffalo) to do a piece on my favorite place to eat in Buffalo, Charlie O’Briens.  Now, its no secret that I am good friends with one of the owners, Dino, and that probably makes me incredibly biased.  But I don’t care.  Everyone that I have introduced to Charlie’s has loved the food and came back (or has wanted to) for more.  Well the same happened when Nelson and Nate tried out their first Charlie’s experience, we dinned and ate all night (thanks to Dino’s generosity).  Please check out Nelson’s review he just posted a couple days ago on their blog, and if you haven’t been swayed into trying Charlie’s, check out these gorgeous pictures they took that night.

And once again, please remember that Nelson will be showing Anthony Bourdain around Buffalo on July 27th on No Reservations, found on the Travel Channel.
