Restaurateur Nick Kotrides has put his three Buffalo places on the block, Business First says.
Empire Grill on Hertel Avenue, Toro Tapas Bar on Elmwood, and Faherty's, the bar next door, are for sale.
James Fink reports in Business First:
"Empire has a $1.295 million asking price while Faherty’s has a $700,000 asking price and Toro has a $1.3 million asking price. Interest is strong in all three, although no offers have been made.
All three remain open and fully operational.
Kotrides said the decision to sell is based solely on a personal plan to pare his operations 'by the time I turn 50.' Kotrides turns 48 this year."
