BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Be sure to have your appetites ready once the weekend is over. A week full of celebrating hundreds of independent restaurants in Western New York is quickly approaching.
You've probably guessed it, Local Restaurant Week starts Monday, April 22 and goes until Sunday, April 28th.
This upcoming week not only provides great deals on food at local eateries, but also promotes WNY's cultural scene. Take a day or the week to dive into the scenery or businesses in the Buffalo area including Shea's Performing Arts Center or the Albright-Knox Art Gallery to name a few.
Go ahead, be adventurous and try going to a new restaurant you've never been to before. Dining features start at just $20.13. All profits spent at the locally-owned independent restaurants stay in WNY and are used to help make the community stronger.
