BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — It’s the week that Buffalo’s diehard foodies always look forward to. Two hundred WNY restaurants are offering dining deals for $20.15, $30.15, or $40.15 through Sunday as part of Local Restaurant Week. The biannual event launched in 2009 as a way to encourage and support locally owned establishments. This time around, the theme is “Think Social. Eat Local.”
“We’re inviting western New Yorkers to come on out and eat and grab their grandmas, their moms, their families, their friends, and come on out and enjoy local this week,” Organizer Christa Hobart said.
News 4 cameras visited Milo’s in Williamsville as one of the first meals of Local Restaurant Week Spring 2015 was served. Milo’s and its sister restaurant, Family Tree, are the only two restaurants to offer breakfast deals. Owner Ray Kollidas looks at the week as a time to give back to his regular customers.
“We do breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day, and we just wanted to give customers an opportunity to capitalize on breakfast items,” Kollidas said.
