Toting a modest selection of chocolate confections and candies, Joseph A. Fowler entered the 1901 Pan American Exposition hoping to plant the seed for a business in his newfound home of Buffalo. The company—founded in 1910—grew with each successive generation, and more than a century later, Fowler's celebrated chocolates continue to placate palates at six New York retail locations. The chocolatier has become synonymous with treats such as milk- and dark-chocolate truffles dubbed truffaloes, as well as sponge candy, which boasts a molasses-like flavor and an initially hard texture that quickly melts in the mouth. Like Count Chocula’s hairpiece, all of Fowler's fine-chocolate treats are crafted from the seeds of the theobroma cacao tree and use up to 60% cocoa solids for a rich cocoa flavor.

Though the eponymous Johnny Tiranno no longer runs Johnny’s Meats, his legacy lives on in the specialty shop’s italian sausage recipes. Mike, Johnny’s stepson and the current owner, still makes the links and patties with his stepfather’s special blend of high-quality meat, imported cheeses, and spices, which first delighted palates in 1946. The meat supplier stocks more than sausages, however. The display cases also house juicy steaks, chicken cutlets, lamb, and seafood, mostly imported from the Midwest. For something to complement these high-quality meats, customers can browse assorted side dishes, such as twice-baked potatoes, verdant salads, and cheeses.
Vietnamese-born Tai Truong emigrated to the United States and worked his way up in the restaurant business until he became co-owner and chef at Saigon Cafe. Gayot describes the restaurant’s menu as “a refreshing and tasteful array of pan-Asian classics,” including grilled duck with tamarind and catfish in a spicy caramel sauce. Green, red, and mango curries envelop pieces of chicken, and vibrantly-hued broccoli and carrots pop against the bong cai’s brown sauce.
Upper Canada Cheese Company crafts artisanal cheeses from approximately 100 local Guernsey cows, a breed renowned for producing milk that bursts with butterfat, protein, and vitamins. Each day, on-site dairy denizens transform small batches of cow milk into flavourful, golden-hued cheeses that meditates in cellars for weeks. Stuff mouth pockets with a helping of Niagara Gold ($61/kg), a semi-soft cheese whose youthful identity is wrought with nutty overtones and a mellow buttery flavour that later ages into a cheese that is pungent and piquant. The Comfort Cream ($59/kg) entices tongues with a silky, creamy interior and fresh truffle flavour, which is hand-salted, hand-turned, and hand-wrapped.
