Eat Drink Local Week

It is that lovely time of year again when harvest season is flourishing, and Buffalo is just one city in a statewide celebration. Edible Buffalo is happy to announce that the week of June 24 through June 30, 2011, is the first annual New York Statewide Eat Drink Local Week. Join Edible Buffalo and seventeen restaurants and wineries as they encourage support for neighboring farms by exhibiting locally produced food on their menus.

“Many of our restaurant and winery partners already use locally sourced ingredients on their menus, so this is an opportunity to showcase their efforts,” says Lisa Tucker, publisher of Edible Buffalo. “We also want to continue to make the connection between farm and plate for consumers. With over 7500 farms in the eight county region, we cannot afford to ignore how important local agriculture is to our food economy.”

Participating restaurants and wineries include 10,000 Vines, Blue Monk, Buffalo Street Grill, Carmelo’s Restaurant, Cole’s Restaurant & Bar, Daniels Restaurant, Farmers & Artisans, Globe Market, Johnson Estate Winery, Lexington Co-operative Market, O’Brien’s Farm Fresh, Ristorante Lombardo, The Roycroft Inn, Shango Bistro, Trattoria Aroma, Webb’s Captain’s Table, and The Wilson House Restaurant.
