Proprietor Nick Kotrides’s open-kitchen concept offers Empire Grill patrons a low-flying bird’s-eye view of chefs plating hand-cut 12-ounce steaks and Cajun shrimp alfredo. Modern light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling windows keep the two-story diner bright and welcoming, and semicircle booths surround a stocked bar.

I had the Chicken Florentine sandwich with fries. The sandwich was yummy, the bread it was on was really good and the fries were pretty awesome.Krystal, Lovin' on Buffalo, 6/4/11
