Day trips are the best. And Ellicottville is the perfect day trip in WNY. Between the cute town center, hills of Holiday Valley, and the sweetest of restaurants like West Rose, it's always a good time in Ellicottville.
One of my favorite days from 2020 concluded with dinner at Britesmith Brewing.
One of the few places I went out to eat this year was to Lafayette Brewing Co., pre-winter 2020 shutdown. It felt like a split second of normalcy sitting at their high top tables, sharing a beer with friends, enjoying the banter with the waitress, and taking in the historic brewery's energy.
You ever had a pizza where you've said, "It's not bad, but it's not good." Well, here we are. But you know what, that's better than saying it's not bad! Especially if you are trying a new place out for the first time and wish to avoid buyer's remorse.
Every time I order a pizza, one of my favorite parts of my experience is scoping out their establishment. It gives me such an insight into what makes a pizza place so special. Their culture, their people, their aesthetic, everything! Even if it's a dingy hole in the wall - those places can sometimes be … Continue reading LaPorta’s Pizzeria: More Than Meets The Eye
Buffalo chicken pizza in Buffalo, NY? Legendary. This venture to New York Beer Project is actually a pretty pathetic story. I won a giveaway contest on Instagram for free mozzarella sticks. Yes, mozzarella sticks. Hahaha. It gets more pathetic every time I say it. What's even better, is that NYBP calls them "mozzarella logs." The … Continue reading New York Beer Project: Buffalo Chicken Bombshell
I'm still very unsure how I have just made it to Picasso's Pizza this year - and a little embarrassed as well! Picasso's Pizza deserves all the hype and Buffalove it gets - it is truly a one-of-kind establishment. I am such a newbie to Picasso's still, but that ended up being the best part … Continue reading Picasso’s Pizza: A Treasured Work of Art
We're always looking for new date night options—and when they have pizza it's a particularly good find. I've been meaning to pay a visit to The Grange Community Kitchen for quite some time, as many of you have recommended it to me. Hamburg is a bit of hike for me, so it was nice to … Continue reading The Grange Community Kitchen: Local Flavor
We all have our drunk pizza, right? Allentown Pizza is this. After a fun night out at the bars on Allen St., there's literally no other way to end the night than with a slice (or two). It's so clutch that Allentown Pizza is open until 4am on Friday and Saturday. Sometimes the line can … Continue reading Allentown Pizza: Pairs Well With Intoxication
Serving the North Buffalo area, Daddio's Pizza is one of the few pizzerias actually on Hertel Ave. There are Just Pizza and Franco Pizza locations nearby surrounding the area, and a few sit-down restaurants with pizza too, like one of my favs, La Tavola Trattoria. Been recommended to Daddio's a few times now, so I … Continue reading Daddio’s Pizza: Daringly Dense
