Mike’s menu will feature appetizers and small plates based on Russian “Zakuski,” wonderful bites meant to accompany a lovely glass of vodka! Smoked salmon, beet caviar, herring and more, you don’t want to miss out on this unique menu! Pastry by Camille will also be providing lovely French Kiss desserts for all our guests! Our goal is to showcase all of the great things about the City of Good Neighbors, from its outstanding art, music and businesses, to the extraordinary visitors that keep coming back to Buffalo to admire the growth and progress our city is experiencing! 

We request your presence on February 12, from 7pm-9pm, to show off some of the best Buffalo has to offer!
