From 11 am to 3 pm people who live and work downtown are encouraged to enjoy a meal or happy hour at one of these spots. Even if you don't reside in the area, you're still welcome to check out these restaurants and support Buy Black Buffalo.

Steven Butler, the owner of one of the participating restaurants said,

“Ike and BG’s Restaurant is happy to open a second location in downtown Buffalo. We have been serving Western NY barbecue and soul food since 1998. Soul food is part of our culture and we are delighted to share that with downtown residents and workers. Buffalo is evolving and so is our business. We invite everyone to celebrate that growth by ordering from our delicious downtown menu.”
