Korean BBQ Wings
Upon entering the Lenox Grill, you might expect to see Ted Danson tending bar. The pub, set several feet below ground and clad in dark wood – bears a striking resemblance to the set of Cheers, the kind of place “where everybody knows your name” or will soon enough.
The Lenox Grill is set within Buffalo’s oldest continuously operating hotel, which dates to the turn of the 20th century and has housed an impressive roster of guests including Duke Ellington, Henry Fonda, Harry Belafonte and a young F. Scott Fitzgerald. The pub, opened more recently, has distinguished itself with an eye-popping beer list of over 550 bottled varieties and a kitchen open later than anywhere else on the trail (3 a.m. on weekends, with a 4 a.m. bar closing time). Its wings have gained local acclaim thanks to enterprising chef Michael Strom, who introduces a new weekly wing special to the bar, from peanut butter-and-jelly to s’mores. Other noteworthy flavor options include the BBQ honey Sriracha and Korean BBQ.
