Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 12 locations lighting 57 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939—a time when movies were called “picture shows,” Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.

Chefs at Toro Tapas Bar infuse their genre-defying tapas with creative fusion cuisine such as bison quesadillas and saffron lobster. Waiters transport small- to medium-size plates to glossy red tables, where diners share bites family style, as mixologists behind a dramatically backlit bar fill goblets with more than 100 wines. High ceilings with exposed girders soar above the space, and terra cotta walls bear abstract paintings that, if stared at long enough, reveal a 3D image of which diner will pick up the bill.

Atmosphere@62 dishes out a menu of upscale cuisine in an elegant, crimson-walled dining room, earning it a nomination WGRZ's Best Taste in Buffalo contest. Candlelight flickers and a hush falls over the dining room as the lobster ravioli appetizer stuffed with scallops, shrimp, smoked salmon, and lobster arrives at the table ($15). The filet of sirloin, served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and house vegetables, takes francophile taste buds on a dream vacation with a choice of au poive or roquefort topping ($15), and the grilled cedar plank salmon, dressed in a livery of sauce vierge, tempts seafood-treasuring tummies alongside lemon-parmesan risotto and grilled vegetables ($24).
