Tabree's Has An Impressive Menu, New Chef

 

Tabree fell into a category of restaurants that we always wanted to try but for one reason or another, never did. When they were located on Elmwood, they were known for their French cuisine and great patio. Since the move to Snyder in August 2011, the restaurant has gone through a couple changes. Former Executive Chef Brenden Haggerty has left to take over The Whole Hog food truck and Chef Bruce Wieszala (formerly of Carmelo’s, COPPA Artisan Meats) has taken over the kitchen.

We’ve tried Bruce’s food several times over the years and have always been impressed, whether it’s his delicious charcuterie or at various events around Buffalo, his devotion to using local and quality produce and meats has always been inspiring. So when we heard the news that he took over the kitchen, Tabree immediately moved up our to do list. So when we were looking for locations for a birthday dinner for my father-in -law, it seemed like a good reason to make a special trip.

We decided to start the meal with one of their appetizer specials, Stuffed Squash Blossoms (pictured below). Filled with creamy ricotta cheese and placed on top of a sweet and tangy tomato sauce, they were lightly fried, crisp and absolutely delicious. Even some of the picky eaters at our table, who would normally stay away from anything involving the word squash, enjoyed a couple bites. I ordered the Grilled Octopus ($12, gallery). The sweetness from the octopus combined with the tangy romesco and salty olives was interesting and enjoyable. Alli’s Mom ordered a Wedge Salad($9.50, gallery), it was pretty standard but had actual pieces of bacon (no bacon bits here) and she seemed to enjoy it.
