While some Harlem businesses are closing in Harlem, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Harlem at 700 West 125th Street, will bring its mouthwatering ‘cue to Upstate New York’s largest city, Buffalo, in summer 2013. Located in a former film storage facility at 301 Franklin Street in the downtown entertainment district, the restaurant group will serve up authentic regional barbecue specialties, along with a list of craft beers and fun, roadhouse appeal.
Founder and Executive Pit Boss John Stage is no stranger to Upstate New York, opening Dino’s first location in Syracuse about 25 years ago. “It was only a matter of time before we chose a spot and time to open in Buffalo. We’re thrilled to be joining the city’s community and to be a part of the great local dining scene,” he says. “I love to eat in this town, and the building has that interesting combo of cool, historic, and eclectic that sets each Dino apart from the other.”
Dinosaur’s menu of smokehouse signatures will be offered at the Buffalo restaurant along with an array of enticing sides and a selection of regional craft brews at the expansive bar. True-blue barbeque favorites such as Jumbo BBQ Chicken Wings, St. Louis Style Ribs, Barbeque Pork Shoulder and Beef Brisket team up with new-school custom ‘ques like Skirt Steak with Chimichurri sauce, Korean Beef Ribs and Shrimp Spiedini served with Honey Hush Cornbread and the restaurant’s beloved homemade sides, such as Macaroni & Cheese, Bar-B-Que Beans, and Creole Potato Salad.
The restaurant will be about 7,200 square feet with some additions, and will seat about 180 diners, making it a great new neighborhood joint in the middle of the energetic downtown scene. http://www.dinobbq.com
