THE STORY OF BUFFALO PROPER
Imagine 1920s Western New York—Buffalo proper. A few years into prohibition, our booming steel town was considered one of the wealthiest and wettest cities in the nation. Buffalonians raised their glasses in defiance of the 18th amendment with strong drinks and great friends.
Buffalo Proper—the restaurant—today represents the highest ideal of what our region has to offer the world of food and beverage. We command theory, technique and inspiration to bridge the gap between our creativity and your pleasure. To us, food and drink are not just about calories and alcohol; they're about transcending every day life into the realm of limitless possibilities. The place where life is just... sweeter.
Jon Karel imbues our bar with passion, mastery and never-ending thirst for revelry. Chefs Nate Beardsley and Nate Washburn command our kitchen with patience, diligence, and endless curiosity. Josh Miles elevates our service team with warmth, knowledge and attentiveness.
