BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A new upscale restaurant is heading to downtown Buffalo this fall.
Owners of "Perfetto" have signed a lease with the city to open a restaurant and bar in a long vacant space at the historic Market Arcade complex. The restaurant will offer high quality meats, seafood, fine wines and craft beers.
Perfetto means "perfect" in Italian and the owner says its perfect timing with the re-opening of the 600 block of Main Street to vehicle traffic.
Jay Haynes said, "I think once the traffic does come here, this is going to be a hot commodity down here. I'm putting the investment in here now to embrace that and the changes that come this way."
Perfetto will open sometime this fall, but no specific date has been announced yet. It's moving into the old home of YaYa Brewhouse, which became the third restaurant in eight years to fail in that location when it closed back in 2005.
