The Como    Website Dinner Menu

The Como was a staple in our household for any large gatherings.  A first communion or graduation would always mean a large order from the Como.  The very large sheet pizza with thick crust and complete tomatoes was impossible for me not to have a piece on the way home.  Also multiple cartons of numerous Itlaian goodies.  I think I liked the left overs even more.

From the website:

The Como Restaurant...Serving fine Italian food for over 80 years!

In 1927, Francesco Antonacci realized his dream when he opened up the Como Restaurant, specializing in Italian cuisine prepared in the true old-world manner, where every dish is a reflection of the cooking artistry of the chef.

Francesco's dream has continued to grow through the culinary skill and passion of the Antonacci and Colucci families.Como Restaurant on Pine Four Generations later, the Como is now the largest and most famous Italian-American Restaurant in Niagara Falls, NY. It has even been featured on local morning shows such as AM Buffalo, and Good Morning Western New York, as well as on a national level on the Food Network.

The Como Restaurant serves traditional dishes in a tasteful atmosphere which conveys the charm and conviviality of Old Italy. The joy of fine food, accented by outstanding imported wines and liquors, makes dining at the Como Restaurant a memorable experience.

Even Nick Wallenda went to the Como after his successful walk over the falls

The Buffalo Chop House Website Menu

First of all I know that I will receive some flak for having the Chop House over E. B. Green's, Kennedy Cove, The Riverstone, or Texas Roadhouse (kidding!)  Hands down the Chop House is the place to go if one night in Buffalo and wanting a steak.  And the prices reflect that as well.  Is their anything better than eggs and bone-in filet the next morning as well?  I travel for work constantly and guess what, everyone always want to go for steaks.  This is my second favorite steak place ever!  The only better steak I ever had was at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn.  The Chop House is a very close second and lucky to have in Buffalo.

From the website:
Our restaurant offers vast delectable dishes and a luxurious ambience. Buffalo Chophouse is Buffalo NY's only true 5 Star fine dining! The Franklin Room can accommodate private parties for up to 250 guests.
