Larkinville: Buffalo, Reinvented

The area known as Larkinville – a collection of businesses, new apartment buildings and public spaces centered along Seneca Street southeast of downtown Buffalo– is one of the city’s most impressive transformations. Formerly empty warehouses and vacant parcels are now home to weekly concerts, food truck rodeos, beer gardens, breweries and distilleries. There’s even a historic diner that’s been refurbished and relocated here. Surburban stand-outs like Paula’s Donuts and Eckl’s have moved into the neighborhood, while Jamaican-born Chef Darian Bryan has opened The Plating Society, which offers cooking classes, ticketed dinners (a favorite of the Buffalo Bills), pop-up events and brunches. This is urban regeneration at its finest.
