Today is Fish Fryday so we were able to eat again in the studio which was a great way to cap off the week!  The owner of Parkside Meadow came in to help make our Friday fish dreams come true.  I am really going to miss these days soon!


Nancy Abramo is one of the owners of Parkside Meadow and she sat down with us to not only talk fish frys and food, but also about the historical aspect of the restaurant.  In 2012 she bought a 60 year old building and painstakingly turned it into the Parkside Meadow Bar & Restaurant.  The goal was to make it a welcoming gateway into her beloved neighborhood, where neighbors and visitors could get together for a drink and a bite to eat. Mission accomplished.

Parkside Meadow

The new Parkside Meadow opened in the fall of 2015 with a new façade featuring deco transom windows hidden under plywood for 60 years. Inside, thousands of artifacts celebrating Buffalo’s people, architecture, food, and events from the late 1800s to the 1950s remind guests just how rich our city’s history truly is.


It is like being at a fun museum where you can eat!  Trust me, the food will be history too once it hits your lips.  If you missed Nancy on the show today you can give it a listen here:
