Local Restaurant Week Spring 2014 Starts Monday!!

Local Restaurant Week is a biannual event that celebrates the vital role our local independent restaurants and vendors play in contributing to Western New York’s cultural identity and regional economy. And that’s just for starters. For diners, it’s also an opportunity to sample new foods and experiences at our local independent restaurants. With Dining Features starting at just $20.14, diners have a great reason to skip the usual national chains and give local independent restaurants a try. Of course, the money diners spend at our locally owned independent restaurants stays right here in WNY and helps make our community stronger. Combine all those ingredients and Local Restaurant Week is truly “An Event of Gastronomical Proportions!”

Local Restaurant Week is the largest independent restaurant promotion in the country

Frank’s Sunny Italy Hosts Traditional St. Joseph Table to Benefit Catholic Charities of Buffalo

Frank’s Sunny Italy Hosts Traditional St. Joseph Table to Benefit Catholic Charities of Buffalo

The Frank Sclafani family, owners of Frank’s Sunny Italy restaurant in North Buffalo, will host its three-generation annual St. Joseph Table and asks only a free will contribution to take part in the feast; there is no other charge. All are invited to the traditional meal, celebrated on the Feast of St. Joseph, which will be held from 1 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 19 at the restaurant, 2491 Delaware Ave.

The restaurant has designated Catholic Charities of Buffalo as the recipient of all of the contributions this year.

Each year, the Sclafanis choose a local charity to benefit.

The St. Joseph Table is an Italian (more specifically Sicilian) event celebrating the principal Feast Day of St. Joseph, spouse of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The Sclafani family donates the food for the meal, their family and employees volunteer their time to prepare and serve the meal. Catholic Charities’ staff also will be on hand to greet and thank participants.
