The square offers two new eateries, a seasonal grill, and several outdoor and indoor eating options. Accented with over 100 colorful benches, café tables, chairs and lounges – the venue is perfect for some summer reading.
Staring June 20 the Larkin Square will kick off its free summer concert series, and weekly marketplace. Every Wednesday evening Live at the Larkin will showcase a different band or musician. On June 20 local acts, the Hot Club of Buffalo and After Hours will take the Larkin Square stage. While the tunes are flowing, attendees will be able to explore the marketplace that will provide a variety of fresh foods, desserts and produce.
