Just the other day, I was talking to a friend about how unfortunate it was that Rowhouse Bakery & Restaurant had closed, but at the same time, the owners put a ton of work into the place, including moving an entire staircase for enhanced restaurant flow. That means that future owners will have access to a venue that has great bones. Hopefully someone will step up and purchase these properties, and get 483 Delaware Avenue (the former Rowhouse) back up and running, as it is one of the greatest venues in all of Buffalo. The right owner could get the right operation in there, that would be an attraction unlike anything else in the city.
