Before former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke at UB's Alumni Arena on Wednesday night -- recapped by The News' Jerry Zremski here -- she dined at a restaurant reviewed by News Food Editor Andrew Z. Galarneau earlier this month.

From Zremski's recap:

"Before the speech, diners spotted Clinton having dinner at Tabree in Snyder with M&T Bank Chairman Robert Wilmers, his wife, Elisabeth, and former Rep. Kathleen C. Hochul, a Buffalo Democrat who now works at the bank."

From Galarneau's review of Tabree:

"I am giving Tabree my highest score because of an extraordinary meal from start to finish and impeccable service. I am not saying every dish was perfect. Despite ranking among the best I’ve tried locally, the calamari and octopus could have been more tender. A '10' on my scale doesn’t mean flawless, beyond any criticism. It means that if you want what they’re selling, you can’t do better."
