Saunter to Dishcrawl Buffalo for new dining experience
blog by Ben Tsujimoto • July 10, 2013 @ 11:08am
You’re undoubtedly familiar with the premise of a bar crawl—or “organized bar hopping” to some—and there’s a chance you’ve heard of Buffalo Bites Food Tours, the lunchtime extravaganzas around Elmwood Village. Now, there’s a complementary event that leads local diners on an evening downtown dinner tour of Buffalo restaurants.
Dishcrawl, a national chain of food events that touches more than 125 cities in the United States and 13 more in Canada, invites urban eaters to explore a number of restaurants in their respective cities. The process involves more than just noshing on four different dishes, however, as introductions to local chefs, brief introductions to each individual restaurant and the chance to meet fellow local diners over a meal all add depth to the gathering.
The first Dishcrawl runs rain or shine in downtown Buffalo at 7 p.m. on July 24, and tickets can be purchased here for $45 plus fees. The four restaurants included on the walking tour have yet to be announced, but they’ll be unveiled on the organization’s Twitter account (@DishcrawlBuff).
We here at Dishcrawl aim to provide you with a premier culinary social experience by bringing together neighborhood restaurants, local chefs, regional food producers and fellow food enthusiasts. Join us if you’d like to embark on a one-of-a-kind gastronomic adventure!
Pure speculation on my part, here are a few tour routes that would make sense given the guidelines of Dishcrawl:
1) Pearl Street, Liberty Hound, Lagerhaus 95, The Hatch.
2) Bacchus, Papaya, Chocolate Bar, Soho Burger Bar
3) Encore, Cabaret, Bambino, Darcy McGee’s
Which of those would you prefer?
