Food Porn: Merge Restaurant

A couple of months ago, Alli and I tried Merge, a newer restaurant on Delaware Ave (near Allen) that caters to the vegetarians, vegans, and anyone who wants a healthy lunch or dinner.  It appears that the place is getting a great word of mouth and I’m optimistic about their future.  They’ve since acquired their liquor license, […]

Food Porn: Manhattan Pizza and Pasta

UPDATE: Since writing this article, Manhattan Pizza has since closed. I’ve been working at my job downtown now for almost 9 months, and the number of places that I can go to on a lunch break and have it be a new experience is becoming harder to accomplish.  Not too long ago a new pizzeria opened in downtown […]

Food Porn: Mister Pizza

Going forward for the summer of 2009, I am going to try and focus on my 2009: A Food Odyssey List.   I’ve noticed that I can get distracted very easily, and those nights where Alli and I want to go out to eat I should try to look at this list and not go […]

Food Porn: Taffy’s Charbroiled Red Hots

I was recently having a discussion with a friend about how there is nothing cool in the Southtowns, and for the most part it’s true. (Alli edit: I disagree..have you been to East Aurora?).  But if you look hard enough, you can find those hidden gems.  Taffy’s is one of those gems located in Orchard […]

Food Porn: Mother’s

For years my friends have told me to go to Mother’s.  However, for one reason or another I have not had the chance to try it.  Finally, when Alli asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday dinner, I knew it was time.  Located on Virginia street (off of Allen) Mother’s is easy […]

Food Porn: Gino & Joe’s Pizza

I love working in Allentown just as much as the next guy.  I love the hippie atmosphere, the culture, and the diversity.  I love being able to walk to great restaurants.  That being said, being able to walk to Gino & Jino’s Pizza for lunch would be a reason to work in the heart of […]

Food Porn: Falafel Bar

UPDATE: Since this article was posted, the Allentown location has closed.  Falafel Bar still has their Sheridan location open in Amherst. Today (May 21st) for lunch I decided to get something new but to also try to be healthy.  Falafel Bar has both of those options, even though Mike and I have visited and splurged […]

Food Porn: Mode Urban Bistro

For those of you who don’t know about Mode Urban Bistro.…it used to be called Le Metro and is located on the corner of Elmwood and W. Utica in the Elmwood Village (the other Le Metro is located on Main St. in Williamsville).  Before this meal, my only experience with Mode/Le Metro was in the […]

Food Porn: Avenue Pizza & Sub

UPDATE: After this post, Avenue Pizza moved down Elmwood and then closed. The best part of my new job is working near almost endless food options for lunch.  Within a 3 mils radius of my office on Delaware & Allen there are countless possibilities.  The worst part of my job is that my coworkers aren’t […]

Food Porn: Cole’s

I will forever consider Cole’s as one my favorite bars in Buffalo.  Located on the beginning of the “Elmwood Strip”, across from Pano’s and right down from Buff State….it’s really a prime location.  And while finding a parking spot might be a headache, in my opinion they have the best selection of draft beer in […]
