  • Dipson Theatres
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Dipson Theatres facet_type_id: a5094160-5f37-1032-b8bb-62bc13bb60c7 html_text: Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 9 locations lighting 46 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.

  • SoHo Burger Bar
    As pedestrians bustle past the eclectic restaurants and theater of the lively Chippewa District, the aroma of sizzling ground beef and freshly baked brioche rolls draws them toward Soho Burger Bar. Executive chef Ray Flor's kitchen is the source of these smells, where chefs whip up a variety of specialty burgers using specialty ground beef from the local Johnny's Meats and custom-made buns from Romeo's Bakery Cafe. They adorn patties of grilled ahi tuna, bison, and turkey with gourmet cheeses, sauces and garnishes, pairing burgers with appetizers of fish tacos or sides of truffle tater tots. Meanwhile, bartenders blend premium liquors into cocktails and decadent spiked milkshakes. Reporters who lauded the restaurant's burgers in publications such as Buffalo Rising or Buffalo News were equally charmed by the interior decor, citing sultry lighting, an inventive chandelier made of liquor bottles, and walls covered in illuminated retro album covers. Cozy conversation nooks, bistro tables, couches, and translucent tortoiseshell patio chairs scatter the vibrant dining room, upstairs lounge, and outdoor patios of the versatile restaurant, which transforms into a quirky eatery during the day, a lively hot spot at night, and an enchanted yo-yo factory by early dawn.

  • Founding Fathers Restaurant
    One of the highest-rated delis in Buffalo, Founding Fathers Restaurant delivers a relaxed atmosphere with an inviting menu that features burgers. It's a culinary destination for guests that want incredible food. If you're planning ahead, most patrons will probably tell you that later in the week (Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays) will be the best time to visit. It should be noted that casual attire is encouraged. Also, though the prices are considered to be lower than average, you're not sacrificing quality. In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try. Upon arrival, see if you can try the nachos, as they're often raved about. For those watching what they eat, the robust menu does feature items that are gluten-free, low-fat, and vegetarian. If you just feel like stopping by for a beverage, the restaurant has helpful bar staff (and a good selection behind the bar). A reputable favorite for some of the best late-night food in Main Street, making a trip to Founding Fathers is never a bad call. Its bar is known to be "great." Visitors to the restaurant have the ability to park nearby on the street. Prefer to pedal your way there? Bicycle parking is also offered.
