New, modern steakhouse to open on Delaware Avenue’s Avant

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A local restaurateur announced Tuesday detailed plans to bring a modern steakhouse to the heart of the Queen City.

Dave Schutte revealed he’ll be opening a new steakhouse called “SEAR” to replace the Della Terra restaurant and Avant Lounge on 200 Delaware Avenue.

The menu will feature options built around locally-sourced ingredients, with fresh seafood offerings and a full dessert menu. In addition to the food, the experienced restaurateur plans to offer a full bar area with high-quality wine and spirits.

Although contractors will need to undertake renovations, Schutte said he expects to open the steakhouse in the early fall of 2016. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
