As our final departure date approached, John and I decided to get some signature Buffalo food before leaving. We had always wanted to try out Left Bank but had trouble getting a reservation in the past (no surprise there, the food was FANTASTIC!), so back in January, (yes, January!), john and I made a reservation, just to be sure we could eat there before we left. Aside from an amazing dinner of ravioli and lobster pasta, I had one of my new favorite things in the world – an appetizer specifically made for Melissa – a tower of delectable fresh mozzarella, perfectly ripe and juicy tomatoes, basil, roasted red peppers, and the best part – crunchy, breaded and deep fried artichoke hearts! Oh my goodness, it was so good, I wish I could have more right now!
During my last week of work, I met up with the ladies I played pinochle with for another delicious meal at My Burger Bar on Sheridan – I had always wanted to try it because they have spiked milkshakes and floats, which are sooo good! Lisa and I got the mudslide milkshake, while Sue got the Snickers – all were yummy!
On my very last day of work, Kayla, Cathryn and I all went on a final sushi date. Sushi Fridays were a tradition for us while working at Citi, and it was great to finish at Citi with one last memorable sushi date – complete with tiny cups of sparkling Sake to celebrate.
Aside from those delicious meals, John and I got some food at some of our true Buffalo favorites – Jim’s Steakout, Salsaritas, Duffs, and Paula’s Donuts! I will definitely miss some of Buffalo’s greatest food spots once we’re gone. (And I know John is really going to miss Wegmans!)
