Many people were upset when Kunis closed a while ago, but it is reopening on lexington st where the CO OP use to be. They have the best sushi around here with good prices. Much cheaper than getting the far inferior sushi made at Wegmans. It will now be take out only, but with the seating being so limited before it shouldn't make much of a difference.
PROS: good sushi for a decent price
CONS: take out only
New World Records is obviously first and foremost a music store. There is a good selection of cds, but they also sell other items such as novelty books and toys. You can find great gifts for people here that are truly unique. Anything from Sushi wrapping paper to the worst case scenario handbooks. If you're parched after shopping you can go to Spot coffee that is connected to it.
I recently saw Thank You for Smoking here. It was my first time and I was surprised at how nice it has been kept up. It is nice and big. In the back of the theater is the concession stand so you don't even have to leave the room to go get something to eat or drink. It was nice because it was the only place in town showing the movie. One thing that might be bad for some people is that the mens room is up three flights of stairs for some reason. It had a nice atmosphere, which was very different then going to a regal or amc.
PROS: great atmosphere, gets some movies other theaters dont
I have attended parties catered by Olivers Restaurant. The food is extremely good. The waiters and waitresses all seemed to work really hard to make sure the party went smoothly and were ready to help you get whatever it is you wanted. I'm sure it was really expensive, but if you have the money I think it is worth it.
PROS: great food, service
This is by far my favorite pizza place in buffalo. They have many different kinds of pizza to choose from- my favorite being BBQ chicken. Not only do they have the most varied menu you are able to choose what you want on your pizza crust. You can choose between things like seasme seeds, garlic, etc. It is a little more expensive then some other places, but it is pretty good. The biggest complaint I have is that they cut the pizza in squares. You can ask for slices, but they sometimes will forget. Once my pizza came without sauce.
PROS: Many different kinds of pizza
CONS: They have messed up a few times.
I had to take a friend here once because her pet rat had a tumor. She was able to get an appointment right away and the tumor was removed that day. It was expensive because it was a real surgery, but it is nice to know that people who care about there pets that much have a place to go. The pet was home that day and recovered nicely. They even did a test to see if it was cancer or not.
I have brought both my pet rats here and a dog. They specialize in exotic pets so pretty much any kind of pet you have you can bring them here. The waiting room is nice with a bunny in there. They are friendly and explain everything to you so you know what's happening. When our dog got neutered the vet was helpful and answered additional questions we had later on. They also sent home a get well card after we brought a sick pet in.
PROS: friendly people that know animals
Bullfeathers is a place you can go anytime of day. They have outside seating, which is nice on a sunny day. The food is on the expensive side and the service is not the fastest, but it is good. The owner has a nice little dog that is usually there and will come up to you. One of the better bars on elmwood
PROS: nice atmosphere
Goodbar is mainly for college students to go. It is usually packed and has a cover charge. It doesn't have as nice an environment as some other bars on elmwood, but if you go here you are bound to see people you know. If you want to go hang out with people from buffstate it is the place to go. Other wise I would go to someplace nicer.
PROS: Popular place for people to go
CONS: Not that nice a place
Being on the elmwood strip it is impossible not to stop in here from time to time. They have a good selection of books and prices are not bad. I have had to go here to buy a few text books for classes. They were always helpful in finding them for me. It is a nice little shop that has a lot of character compared to big bookstores I am use to.
