The waterfront Marriott, all shiny and aromatic like a new car, has opened its new lobby bar and mini-eatery. You could almost call it a lunch counter, if you will forgive our old Woolworths terminology.
Oatmeal is $3.95 and salads with chicken and salmon and quinoa and whatnot run about $10. A placard said happy hour was 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. although there were no visible specials. Glasses of wine were in the $7 to $8 range. You are in a hotel after all.
The menu board shows calorie count, something new and exotic to us outside of certain fast food places.
Here is Shelton Square, which we gossiped about before.
And a nice little patio, here shot from inside.
A window looks out on the Metro Rail.
A cute reading library by the business center ...
... has books on Frank Lloyd Wright and Forest Lawn Cemetery. Best of all is The Buffalo News' "Headlines and History," which we noted with approval was prominently displayed.
How welcome, to see this new amenity downtown.
A happy hour, indeed!
