Milkie's On Elmwood
Few people stick with their first jobs longer than a summer. But when 9-year-old Mike Milkie first helped out at his father's restaurant, he was taking the first steps toward a career as a restaurateur that has lasted more than six decades. Milkie's On Elmwood is his latest endeavor, following more than a dozen Buffalo-area restaurants and clubs, including the former Milkie Way Theater, which hosted acclaimed Broadway plays and second-run planetarium films.
Mike's niece Suzanne leads things on the culinary side as the head chef. Every day, her kitchen staff layers hand-carved meats between slices of bread slathered with chutneys and roasted pepper spreads, caramelize bacon to pile atop burgers, and bake crispy flatbreads until the ovens shut down at 4 a.m. Milkie's On Elmwood hosts special events such as Friday fish fries, trivia and karaoke nights, and live performances by Lance Diamond and other local musicians.
