Western New York- Lunch at Daniel's

I've always wanted to dine at Daniel's Restaurant.  It's won accolades for "Best Restaurant" and "Most Romantic" spot in Western New York for years but somehow it just never felt like the right time.  I was either busy with family on our sporadic visits or worried about asking friends to join in on a pricey tasting menu.  But recently Daniel's went through a little revamp adding on a beautiful outdoor patio, creating new weekly events like Martini & Oyster Mondays and opening up for lunch every Friday with a special, much more wallet friendly menu from 12:00-2:00.

We stopped in right around 1:00 PM and were able to get a table on the relaxing new patio outside without a wait.  A delicious bottle of Prosecco to begin and a few salads to share.  The Summer Special, a bright spinach salad topped with grilled watermelon, manchego cheese, marcona almonds and zesty vodka pepper gazpacho dressing.

And the classic Daniel's Salad with tomato tartare, deviled egg and brie cheese studded with crunchy onion straws and a black truffle vinaigrette.  

For entrees a colorful Fritatta loaded with wild mushrooms, spinach, sun dried tomatoes and asparagus tips.  

In addition to the regular lunch menu Daniels offers a Bento Box and Burger & Beer special that rotates weekly.   This is a great opportunity to check out a classic Western New York staple at an incredibly affordable price.
