Kunis To Go: Never been there. I hear it’s great. His previous restaurant (Kuni’s) was the best in WNY, I would expect nothing less from this place. He even put in the effort to create a unique web site; quality all the way.
Papaya Restaurant: Never been here either, but it’s on my to-do list.
Shogun: Palatable and especially useful at times, like New Year’s Eve, when you simply want to get something to bring home and nibble on while waiting for the ball to drop.
O: This is definitely a unique sushi bar; at least it was the last time my wife and I ate there, what with the live Salsa music playing in the background. Expensive and good.
Fuji Grill in Amherst: Ate lunch there. Excellent food and service. Don’t try the coffee.
Sakura: My favorite because of its variety. For taste, it’s probably more middle of the pack but hey, it’s in Cheektowaga and not far from anywhere.
Sea Bar: Opened in July of 2007. It’s run by Mike Andrzejewski, so it’s bound for greatness. It’s also on Main Street in Williamsville; how convenient. I will be going there for lunch any day now.
Wegmans: Only if you are desperate.
There are probably several other sushi places in the Buffalo area that I have not yet heard about. My near-term plans include trying them all, especially now that my wife are I are soon to be empty-nesters.
