Local Restaurant Week happens twice a year, once in the fall (as in, RIGHT NOW) and again in the spring. The idea behind local restaurant week is to encourage people to explore new (or new to them) restaurants that are independently owned and part of the fabric of Western New York.

Tuesday we had the chance to sample from Buffalo's Best Grill. Executive Chef Roger Bell brought us three items off their Local Restaurant Week Menu: the Cioppino, Chicken Oscar, and Stuffed Pork Tenderloin.

Here's the full menu for this week:
