"Dinner was exceptional, probably the best meal I had since dining at the acclaimed Next in Chicago last summer." -Steve Jermanok
Buffalo just got some good press
by travel writer Steve Jermanok (on assignment for The Boston Globe
) who not only hyped up the city's architecture, but also highly praised the food scene - most notably Mike A's Steakhouse, stating that it was the best meal that he had had since last dining at a well known restaurant in Chicago the previous summer. Check out the major kudos he gives to downtown's newest hotspot:
"Saved by Buffalo's favorite son, developer Rocco Termini, the circa-1904 Lafayette Hotel has reclaimed its French Renaissance and Art Deco glamour and is now a boutique hotel with a vintage bar. Dinner was exceptional, probably the best meal I had since dining at the acclaimed Next in Chicago last summer. Mike Andrzejewski is one of the city's best loved chefs and he finally has a high-end restaurant that matches his talent. One taste of his wagyu beef tartare, spiced with pine nuts, capers, watercress, red onions, olive oil, truffled dijon mustard, and egg yolk, and you realize this dude's destined for a James Beard Award."
