Nickel City Cheese Offers Sandwiches and Gourmet Goodies

Nickel City Cheese Offers Sandwiches and Gourmet Goodies

A few months ago Nickel City Cheese & Mercantile moved onto Elmwood, taking over the building that was former home to Tabree. Run by Jill Forster (Steve Gedra’s (Bistro Europa) sister), its given the city of Buffalo a gourmet grocery store offering a large variety of premium cheese from all over the world, charcuterie, olives and other delicious foodie delights. Jill is fantastic and came over to the Buffalo Eats studio last week and talked about her shop, her background and how she made her way into the world of cheese. That podcast will debut next Tuesday (Aug 21st) and I highly suggest you take a listen to it.

Founding Fathers Serves Drinks and History Lessons

Founding Fathers Serves Drinks and History Lessons

Two months into starting Buffalo Eats, I wrote a post about having lunch at Founding Fathers and vaguely mentioned how much I enjoy the bar. The post was brief and over the three years since writing that article, my feelings for this bar have grown. I now consider it one of my favorite bars in the city (on par with the Pink), it’s the bar I chose to drink at the night before my wedding and the first place I took my brother when he turned 21. When I became the mayor on foursquare last month I was genuinely excited.

The new menu options will cater to individuals who must adhere to a strict gluten-free diet due to Celiac Disease and other medical conditions.

“While our menu has always included some gluten-free breads and brick oven pizzas, we have several diners who have expressed an interest in more gluten-free options, and we are happy to accommodate their dining needs,” said Chef Andrew Murtha. “Our kitchen has equipment dedicated to our gluten-free menu options, with absolutely no cross-contamination with gluten foods.”

Mike A's Raises the Bar for Fine Dining in Buffalo

I’ve had over 300 meals in Western New York and while several were very good this meal was excellent and convinced me that a change is coming.  What Mike Andrzejewski and Chef Edward Forster have brought to Buffalo is a true fine dining experience that stands alone and will hopefully set the bar for the area’s best restaurants.
