Oshun

If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll know that we’ve been tracking the progress of Chef Jim Guarino’s new restaurant, Oshun for a while now. It’s been a long journey.

Artisan Kitchens and Bath had a big crowd throughout the entire event, as the attendees ate as many tacos as they could while enjoying some local craft beer.

Dick and Jenny’s August Wine Dinner

It’s been over five years and we still have an embarrassingly long list of restaurants that we need to try. One of the restaurants near the top of the list is Dick and Jenny’s, probably the only restaurant on Grand Island that’s worth the toll. I knew the restaurant served cajun food but that was...

Peking Quick One

It sounds weird, but moving from Allentown to Cheektowaga has brought us closer to really good Chinese food. We live less then 10 minutes away from arguably the three best Homestyle Chinese restaurants in Western New York; China Star, Miss Hot Cafe and Peking Quick One. Lately, Miss Hot Cafe has been our jam and...

Lobster Rolls, Farm to Table and Duckfat

Alli and I spent last week driving around New England and eating as much food as we possibly could. Our first stop was Portland (Maine), a city and state that neither of us have ever visited.

Antoinette’s Sweets

There are plenty of restaurants in Western New York that feel like they are stuck in time and haven’t changed in years. There is a fine line between a restaurant that creates nostalgia and feels charming and another that feels sad and outdated. The major difference is usually the quality of the food and luckily...
