Bacchus Wine Bar Restaurant Buffalo NY

Bacchus Wine Bar Restaurant Buffalo NYA really good downtown Buffalo restaurant:  Bacchus Wine Bar & Restaurant 56 W Chippewa St Buffalo NY 14202

A hip restaurant in downtown’s busiest area, Bacchus is indeed a wine mecca, offering more than 200 bottles, all available by the glass. Often crowded, and sometimes downright noisy, the large space combines a bar with a chic candlelit dining room. You can order delicious larger plates of lamb chops and filet or ahi tuna, but the culinary ingenuity is best found in the small plates. They’re larger than traditional tapas (two per person will do) and trade the typical Spanish flair for innovations like a carpaccio of sirloin with egg crostini, arugula, Reggiano, and truffle oil; or tuna tartare with cucumber jalapeño, Asian guacamole, and wonton chips. Crowds form early, but a wait at the bar is hardly a bore.
