Good Sign: D’Avolio’s Kitchen Coming to 535 Main Street

D’Avolio’s Kitchen is heading downtown filling a key storefront in the resurgent 500 block of Main Street.  The oil, salt, and vinegar purveyor has taken the first floor of 535 Main Street with plans to open this spring.  D’Avolio’s will be bringing its kitchen concept into the heart of the city and will be offering soups, salads, pizza, and sandwiches along with its retail offerings.

Building owners Kevin Helfer and Paul Lamparelli are gutting four-story, circa-1851 building that has 6,800 sq.ft. of space.  Residential space will occupy the building’s upper floors. A second floor apartment will contain over 2,000 sq.ft. of living space. The third and fourth floors will house two, two-story loft units.

D’Avolio has five area locations including a retail store at 814 Elmwood Avenue.  Its only other ‘kitchen’ location is on Main Street in Williamsville.

    Let’s thank ‘cars’ returning to Main St.!

    Genesee and Main Streets will make a picture postcard impression on visitors to Buffalo once again. All building will for the most part be renovated to their turn of century brick facades, most with ground level eateries and apartments on upper floors. Hyatt diners will finally have a nice view lol. Keep the momentum going Buffalo.
    For a glimpse of what it once was like…

    john 501 jonny99 Make that 6…I believe the old Hot Dog place is planning a ground floor restaurant too.  Hope I don’t gain too much weight living on that corner!  🙂
