BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — After an almost eight-year run on Hertel Avenue, The Empire Grill has gone out of business.
A message posted on the restaurant’s Facebook page says Sunday was the Empire Grill’s last day.
“Thank you for your support and patronage,” the post from the Kotrides family reads. “We believe we left it better than we found it and that the next stage will be even better. It will re-open when the new owners are finished with remodeling under a new name and concept.”
The Empire Grill opened to much fanfare at 1435 Hertel, at Norwalk, in the fall of 2006. The swanky two-level restaurant debuted at a site where another business had been destroyed by a fire six years earlier.
