Grab Buffalo grub in NYC

Buffalo expats who’ve found a new home in New York City often flock to classic Bills hangouts like McFadden’s in the heart of Manhattan, but there’s a new batch of Buffalo-inspired eateries that’s offering displaced Buffalonians a taste of home.
Red’s Char-Grilled Hot Dogs and Little Town NYC, both located in Manhattan, opened up shop recently, and they’re both serving Western New York grub, New York City Buffalo Bills Backers’ co-founder Matt Kabel said in a club e-newsletter.
Red’s Char-Grilled Hot Dogs, located inside American Trash at 1471 First Ave., grills up Sahlen’s Hot Dogs with true-blue Buffalo condiment of choice Weber’s Mustard. Wash down that Buffalo dog with loganberry, of course. Kabel explained that the owner attended UB and is married to a Buffalonian.
Up until August, Red’s existed solely as a pop-up hot dog stand, but the move into American Trash represents the restaurant’s new identity as a permanent establishment within brick-and-mortar walls.
Then there’s Little Town NYC, 366 W. 46th St. in the NYC’s theater district, which offers iconic foods unique to small towns and cities around New York state.
The restaurant actually has two locations—the other’s in the Union Square area—but the uptown restaurant serves up more WNY—dare I say?—delicacies such as beef on weck, Buffalo wings and garbage plates.
