Do you know what besides April Fool's Day happens during the first week of April?  It's restaurant week in Western New York. This is an event that celebrates restaurants in the Buffalo area.

More than 200 restaurants are participating locally. It's a great excuse to get our sample the local cuisine and save some money.

For more than two centuries, our independent local restaurants have been the keepers and guardians of Western New York's unique local culture. With your support, they'll also set the table for the area's exciting future. We invite you to join friends and family to "savor the local flavor" during each Local Restaurant Week - and every other week of the year! Think Social. Eat Local.

Our friends at WIVB explored it in more delicious detail:
