Allen Street Poutine Company has announced that it is opening a second location on Hertel Avenue. The restaurant first opened in Allentown in March of 2015. Since that time, hundreds of people have had a chance to eat at this unique restaurant. Now, poutine lovers in North Buffalo will not have to make the trek to find their favorite menu items.
The new restaurant, slated to open in early spring of 2017, will be called Hertel Avenue Poutine & Cream. The restaurant will occupy 1,395 square feet of space (attached to Family Video) at 1488 Hertel Avenue – corner of Sterling Avenue.
Opening this new location is Jake Fraser, COO for Allen Street Poutine Company, along with partners Konstantine Kentros and Marc Adler. Customers can expect to find many of their signature poutine items, along with homemade ice cream concoctions. The homemade ice cream idea was inspired by a couple of visits to a few ice cream shops in Toronto.
“The reception we have received from the public has been fabulous,” stated Fraser. “In a large part, due to the demand of our customers, we have decided that it is time to expand our local footprint. North Buffalo seemed like the next best step, especially with the increased restaurant activity on Hertel, the proximity to an active residential population, and the number of young professionals and families moving into the area.’
The team that brought you the first dedicated poutinerie in Buffalo, is now embarking upon its second poutine-laden adventure. Once again, Hertel is doing a fine job of attracting popular shops and restaurants into its midst.
