Food Porn: Buffalo Sports Garden (BSG)

For years, the location that now holds BSG in Orchard Park would change every year or 2 into a new pizza place.  The previous establishments couldn’t find a way to make it work (including Buffalo’s famous John & Mary’s).  A couple years ago, a complete renovation (pictures available at website below) occurred and they turned…

Food Porn: The Boston Hotel

Before a tragic fire (that luckily ended with no injuries) this winter destroyed the following restaurant.  Alli and I had visited Boston, NY’s staple The Boston Hotel several times.  They have some great dining deals, in particular Monday’s were amazing for beer and lobster dantie/clam specials.  For those in the greater Buffalo area, you might…

Food Porn: Pearl Street Grill & Brewery

This weekend (August 31s, 2008 ) Alli and I went to Pearl Street Grill & Brewery and enjoyed another awesome dinner.  I was hesitant to go because I normally don’t like their dinner menu, although I do love their appetizers.  FYI: the cheese fries and cheddar beer soup are worth the trip alone.  So this…

Food Porn: WJ Morrissey’s Irish Pub

UPDATE: Check out our more detailed review from here (1/22/10) UPDATE #2: The restaurant has since closed. The Cobblestone area of Buffalo is awesome.

Food Porn: Antoinette’s On the Hill

UPDATE: Since writing this post, Nick Charlaps has bought the building. Some of my earliest memories come from going to my grandparent’s house in West Seneca and getting “treated” to going to Antoinette’s for some ice cream.  When I walk in still today, I feel like its for something special.  The style inside hasn’t changed…

Food Porn: Ricotta’s Pizza

Since I can remember, Ricotta’s Country Store in Orchard Park has been THE place to get pizza for my family.  Being only 1/2 a mile down the street from my house and my Dad working there for a year might have something to do with it, but the pizza has really been good. Since working…

Food Porn: Pearl Street Grill & Brewery

Buffalo’s own Pearl Street Grill & Brewery is gorgeous.  The building dates back to 1841 and the wood interior (along with the really cool looking fan system) is amazing for just the eye candy alone.  The building has a New Orleans style outdoor patio that circles around the entire building (and all 3 floors) which…

Their wings and beef…

Food Porn: Mulberry’s

This Monday, Alli and I had the privilege of going to dinner with my aunt and uncle at this hidden gem of Lackawanna, NY.  Mulberry’s is a lovely Italian restaurant that tries to make you feel like you’re in little Italy in NYC (hence the name, based off a street in said district). Now, this…

Food Porn: Saigon Cafe

Alli and I have talked about going to Saigon Cafe for a long time, since we started dating over 5 years ago.  It’s always been a restaurant we’ve driven by and said “we should go there”.  I had tried the restaurant almost 6 years ago but I didn’t remember much, and now that I have…
