BUFFALO, NY- For the first time ever, the website Yelp has released a list of the Top 100 Place to Eat in Buffalo. Does your favorite restaurant make the list?
Buffalo is known for, among other things, its food. In fact, Buffalo was recently named one of the top foodie cities by National Geographic.
To calculate the Top 100, Yelp’s data scientists used a technique based on something called the Wilson Score to compile a list of the highest-rated restaurants. This method uses both star ratings and number of reviews to determine which restaurants are ranked highly, but also which are most popular in the Buffalo area.
The list includes everything from hole-in-the-wall diners, to upscale dining, to bakeries, to dive bars, to food trucks. It doesn’t include any national chain restaurants.
The top spot on Yelp’s list of the Top 100 Places to Eat in Buffalo goes to Teton Kitchen on Dick Rd. in Depew. Teton Kitchen is a Japanese and Thai Fusion restaurant. The outside of the restaurant looks deceiving- and yes it’s small, but the menu is huge.
This fresh tuna tartar and lamb chop with balsamic are two of the most popular dishes. But chef and owner Taka Win says customer service is just as important as the food.
Win worked in Japan, and Manhattan, and near the Grand Tetons in Wyoming before settling here in Buffalo. He says he couldn’t be more proud that his restaurant – with high end cuisine at budget-friendly prices – is on top.
Here is a list of the Top 10:
