“We’re excited to go back to the Taste of Buffalo, it’s one of our favorite events,” said Devon Perri, who’s the part-owner of Pizza Amore. “It’s exciting that something is happening because a lot of events last year were canceled so going back to normal is nice, whether it’s somewhat normal, half normal we’re still excited to do something.”

“It’s pretty awesome and we have to do it, because typically, other than covid, it’s so crowded down there that otherwise our regular customers can’t get to us anyways so we’re all in on the taste,” said Osteria 166 owner Nick Pitillo. “Frankly it’s a sign of progress that we’re able to do it. It’s just one more step closer to whatever normal may be.”

“The restaurants in this year’s Taste are some of western New York’s favorites and we couldn’t
be happier to be able to provide a venue for them to reunite with the public. It’s been a long time since we’ve all been together as a community and Buffalonians are ready and willing to throw a party that supports the local businesses that have gone through so much over the past year.”

Amber Hartman, Taste of Buffalo Chairwoman

Again this year, each restaurant will offer a “Healthy Option” menu item. Additionally, restaurants have the option to offer “taste portions” of one of their menu options in order to allow more flexibility in menu planning and portioning.

The list of individual menu items will be shared next month in the Taste of Buffalo’s virtual event guide.
