There's no shortage of great restaurants here in Western New York and living here my entire life, it's safe to say you can try something awesome and new every day for a very, very long time.

Still, I'm guilty of going to the same few places over and over again (I think most people are). There are certain restaurants you just become a "regular" at.

Perhaps it's time to change things up and have some food at places you've never visited before. You know, the ones you might pass by on the way to work every day; or ones you've heard about through the grapevine, but never went to for whatever reason.

It doesn't really matter if you live in the City of Buffalo, northtowns, southtowns, or even east of the city -- there are so many places that you can call 'hidden gems,' that you should be giving a try the next time you're getting takeout or dining in somewhere.
