    Younger generation looking to restore Falls landmark to former glory

    No Comments

    From the Tonawanda News:

    A Niagara Falls landmark that has sat largely dormant for years is getting some love from a pair of 20-somethings.

    Nirel Patel and Matt Green have big plans for the Niagara Club, the building that housed a private social club that had a list of members — Whitney, Scheollkopf — that reads like a history book about the city. They hope to soon find a restaurateur or executive chef to partner with in opening a fine dining restaurant and eventually hope to convert the second and third floors into a boutique hotel with up to 10 rooms.

    Savor: A touch of class in downtown Niagara Falls, N.Y.

    From the Buffalo News:

    Ten years ago, when my job included reporting developments – or lack thereof – in downtown Niagara Falls, I was often asked where to find the best meal within a walk of the famed cataracts. My answers made hungry people sad.

    Three weeks ago, I found myself eating at a fine dining, white-tablecloth place two blocks from the park. A restaurant with a chef’s table and a tasting menu and a polite young sommelier with a French accent.

    This is Niagara Falls, N.Y., now.

    I’d read the stories about the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute opening in the former Rainbow Mall, home to state-of-the-art classrooms for the culinary students of Niagara County Community College plus restaurants, a pastry shop and a wine boutique. (See accompanying Cheap Eats review on Page 17.) But it didn’t really hit me until we sat down at Savor.

    Delicious, cheap eats at Niagara Falls’ Casa D’Oro

    From Niagara This Week:

    Casa D’Oro proves affordable and delicious Italian food can be found in the heart of Nargara Falls’ entertainment district.

    Located at 5875 Victoria Ave., the fine dining yet comfortable restaurant was mere steps away from Clifton Hill, and the décor didn’t let us forget it. The large, artistically detailed front doors, red velvet booths, murals and Sinatra soundtrack fit in with the district’s elaborate entertainment theme, but those elements were mixed with knowledgeable and attentive service, a surprisingly comfortable atmosphere and fantastic food.
