Waxlight Bar à Vin

Waxlight Bar à Vin is a wine-focused restaurant in Buffalo, NY’s Black Rock Neighborhood. Owned and operated by a supergroup of some of the city’s most daring and forward-thinking culinary, wine, and cocktail minds. If this team were a band – they’d fall somewhere between Mad Season and the Traveling Wilburys. Each of the members brings a strong following of their own, having worked in various storied establishments across the US and globally. Edward Forster, Joseph Fenush, Jess Railey, Tony Rials, and Jeff Yannuzzi have created a space where people can both enjoy themselves and explore the unique aspects of taste and experience that this team crafts with a total lack of pretension. I don’t know many places where the staff, let alone the owners (one and the same here), will gladly nerd out with you about the finer details of the food and drink they’re serving. 

Just reading over some of their menu items has me drooling right now. I should never write about restaurants I’ve photographed when I’m hungry.
