Buffalo chef Mike Andrzejewski's shot at world-class dining in the Lafayette Hotel is over. With the departure of Chef Edward Forster, who was responsible for the menu at Mike A's at the Lafayette (391 Washington St., mikealafayette.com, 253-6453), Andrzejewski decided it was time to end the experiment.
"I'm trying to make Mike A at the Hotel Lafayette a considerable bit more accessible and fun, as well as increase customers and business," Andrzejewski said.
Lunch will be emphasized more, as well as the bar and lounge food program "that will feature a more bold and international feel and comfortable pricing," the chef said.
Prices are going down. Andrzejewski's draft menu has starters (pork belly, potato terrine, marrow bones) from $6 to $17, entrees (skate wing, whole crisped chicken, dry aged duck) from $19 to $29, and steaks from $30 to a dry-aged $45 T-bone.
Mike A's will be closed Monday, Aug. 5 and Tuesday Aug. 6. Then its hours will be 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for lunch Tues.-Fri. and dinner 5 p.m.-10 p.m. Tues.-Sat., he said.
