COVID-19 – Restaurants Providing Takeout & Delivery

Updated as of 3/24/20. Please check the restaurant’s website or FaceBook for any updates.

In these uncertain times, it is important to support small businesses. You can show your support for local restaurants by continuing to order food for takeout or delivery, or by order gift certificates for use once this pandemic is defeated and we are back to business as usual…

Many locally-owned restaurants have had to pause their operations, but below is a list of restaurants that have modified their operations to still provide takeout and/or delivery. This too shall pass, but in the meantime, please stay safe and do everything you can to support the following:

Pano’s

I have been looking forward to checking out the remodeled Pano’s on Elmwood for a while now and all I can say is that I am so mad at myself for not going sooner! Upon first walking in, the atmosphere gave me some major modern Grecian vibes. The menu is casual Greek with options for everyone, including all-day breakfast.

With an impressive drink menu, I started with a Blood Orange Moscow Mule. It tastes like summer in a glass and had me reminiscing about sipping cocktails overlooking the Mediterranean in Santorini. Except on Elmwood Ave.

Panos Mezza PlateI highly recommend the Mezza Plate as an appetizer. It is the perfect trio of hummus, tyro kafteri (feta cheese pepper spread) and melitzanosalata (eggplant dip) served with pita. All three of the spreads were tasty but let me tell you, I will be dreaming about the creamy cheese pepper dip for a long time.

Pano's MoussakaFor entrees, I ordered the Moussaka, which is traditional Mediterranean vegetable lasagna. topped with bechamel sauce & panko. It had a surprising spice to it which was evened out by the creamy sauce. I would definitely order again. The Psari Plaki dish is a haddock broiled with tomatoes & olive oil served with sauteed spinach and Greek potatoes. The haddock had a fresh and peppery taste, but the real stand-out was the potatoes. SO. GOOD.

Panos HaddockOverall, the experience was enjoyable and the food and atmosphere were fresh and fun. Pano’s also has an awesome brunch menu that I plan on experiencing as soon as possible!

 

Pano’s is located at 1081 Elmwood Ave.

 

Misuta Chows

The infamous pink stairs. We’ve all seen the pictures flooding social media of friends posing on the sparkly steps. I needed to see what it was all about and if the restaurant-arcade lived up to the hype!

The first thing to note – the restaurant does not have a sign out front but you know you are at the right place because of the packed bar, LED lights, and fun neon signs inside! I definitely stood outside awkwardly for a minute before realizing I was in fact in the right place.

Even though we couldn’t pronounce the majority of the menu items, we wanted to be adventurous and try as many things as possible so we started out with a couple of appetizers. I’m a sucker for rice balls so the Age Onigiri was my favorite. These were deep fried and topped with sesame seeds, pickled plum & shiso mayo. Divine! You also can’t go wrong ordering the Pork Gyoza which are pan fried dumplings served with ponzu soy sauce.

For an entree, I ordered the Chicken Bao Buns which were to die for! The buns practically melted in my mouth and the chicken was fried to a perfect crisp. I would order them again in a heartbeat.

Lastly, the “Dunbari” Kushiyaki Bowl is sort of a choose your own adventure item where you pick your preferred skewered meat and veggies, either with steamed or fried rice. My friend picked the Japanese sweet and sour Meatballs and the Yakitori (Chicken Skewer) and was satisfied with that choice!

All in all, Misuta Chows has a fun, vibrant atmosphere that I would definitely recommend for both the food and experience. I didn’t get the chance to play the arcade games upstairs, but you better believe I got the pink stair pic! I look forward to heading back soon to check out the arcade and sample even more menu items.

 

 

Misuta Chows is located at 521 Main Street.

 

The Little Club

“Prosecco on tap? Yes, please!”

That was my first thought looking at the menu at The Little Club, the “Come as You Are Neighborhood Wine Bar” on Hertel Ave. They have about 5 different wines on tap and then a full wine list and a handful of cocktails and beer on draft.

For food, The Little Club provides a snackable menu of cured meats, cheeses, tinned seafood, and small plates inspired by the casual wine bars of Europe. Perfect for sharing and sampling multiple menu items!

I started simply with the House Pickles which were an assortment of pickled vegetables including cauliflower and red onions, along with the Sourdough Bread with farm butter and formage fort.

For entrees, the Short Rib Sliders were served with a horseradish gremolata on a potato bun. The meat was tender and delicious, but the real winner of the meal was the Spicy Albondigas, which are melt-in-your-mouth pork meatballs with a creamy tomato saffron sauce. We saved some of the sourdough bread to dip in the meatball sauce and all I can say is DO IT. It was heavenly and I could not stop talking about how good these were for the rest of the evening.

All in all, I would definitely recommend popping in to The Little Club for happy hour and appetizers. For a smaller location, they sure can pack a lot of people in! The service was friendly and knowledgeable, and my glass never stayed empty for long!

 

The Little Club is located at 1197 Hertel Ave.

D-Tour Martini Bar

martinisI have been so excited to go to D-Tour Martini Bar since the second I drove past it on Chippewa before it was even open. I FINALLY had the chance to go this summer with one of my girlfriends. This place has the perfect atmosphere for a girls get-together or date night! We went on a gorgeous night where we were able to sit out on the patio for happy hour, which provided free entertainment (people watching) overlooking Chippewa Street.

D-Tour has an awesome weekday happy hour special with 2-for-1 martinis and house wines from 4-7pm, along with some appetizer specials. The martinis are all named after a local Buffalo street which is a fun little detail. I tried the Tupper (Belvedere Vodka / Chambord / Pineapple Juice / Prosecco) and the Gates Circle (Stoli Blueberry Vodka / Chambord / Simple Syrup / Soda Water). Both were delicious and highly recommended.

foodFor food, they have a menu of small plates, salads, and a melt bar with a handful of classic sandwiches. I can vouch for the Margarita Flatbread Pizza and the Roasted Banana Pepper Dip with ricotta & parmesan cheese and marinara sauce. The dip is different from any others in the area because instead of the typical creamy base, it’s more of a red sauce which was a nice change from the usual. So yummy and perfect for soaking up those martinis!

Whether you are looking for a happy hour, a date, or girls night out, I highly recommend checking out D-Tour. I need to make my way through their martini menu, so I’ll make sure to pop in again soon…

D-Tour Martini Bar is located at 49 W. Chippewa St.
