They're makin' bacon at Elmwood Ave.'s new Joe's Deli


The Hertel Avenue sandwich specialists have opened a second store, adding a liquor license and planning to serve brunch in the future. Ben Tsujimoto had a look around and talked to Joe’s Deli owner Joe Lyons, head chef Chris Salvati and general manager Eliseo Taborda about their plans.

"Salvati’s dinner specials will delve into relatively unusual cuts of meat—for restaurants, at least. Hangar steaks, veal cheeks, pork shanks, higher-end pork rib-eye, pork flat-iron steaks and pork belly BLTs—with house-made bacon—will be highlighted in the deli’s rotating dinner specials," Tsujimoto reported.

But never fear, vegetarians, Joe's Deli is thinking of you too. 

“Our specials menu [at the new restaurant] will be very Elmwood-driven,” Lyons said an hour before Joe’s Deli Elmwood’s first preview dinner. “We’ll have more gluten-free options and plenty of vegetarian choices.”

Kim's International Cafe offers Korean classics at Niagara Air Force base


The Buffalo News' intrepid Niagara correspondent Mike Kurilovitch has delivered an enthusiastic review of Kim's International Cafe, a diner-plus-Korean restaurant located near the Niagara Falls Air Force Base's northern gate (2028 Lockport Road, Niagara Falls, NY 14304, 524-2253).

Bulgogi, spicy Korean ramen soup and another loaded with rice cakes, dumplings and egg drops all won praise. It's an unusually ethnic offering that far north in Niagara County. Travelers might want to punch it into their GPS for the next time they're up at the lake, or on an afternoon fruit-picking spree.
