The temperatures are dropping in Western New York, but we've never let a little cold keep us from enjoying a good meal with friends and family. Just like last year, igloo dining is all the rage in Buffalo. So far, these four restaurants and Canalside (which doesn't have food) are offering igloo experiences. There's something very VIP about having your own private dining space, especially since they are heated. As more restaurants start accepting reservations, I'll be adding to this list. Bone apple tea!

Buffalo, NY 14203
