Buffalo- Brunch at Toutant

My last trip to Western NY felt like a food and drink extravaganza.  There are so many new places in the city...for example Southern restaurant Toutant.  Head Chef James Robert brings hearty fare from Louisiana like a classic basket of Beignets; incredibly light pillows of fried dough dusted with powdered sugar...

...Biscuits and Gravy with two fried eggs drizzled in a sausage sauce that evoked memories of Thanksgiving supper...

...and a crisp buttermilk Fried Chicken; light on the grease and perfectly seasoned with a side of collard greens.

The Southern specialties continued with the cocktails including a classic New Orleans Hurricane...

...and some tasty originals like the Delta Princess with Peach Vodka, Lillet and Watermelon Gastrique...

...and the smoky Street Sense with Pisco, Mezcal, cucumber and egg whites.

Fantastic cocktails, great Southern food; I can't wait to hit this up again on my next visit! And speaking about Buffalo...how about those Bills yesterday!!!
