Local factories heating up, a great steakhouse, and gas price woes...

From Business Today:

Manufacturing in the Buffalo Niagara region, though not the economic Factory powerhouse it once was, is showing signs of growth. The purchasing managers from area factories contribute to a monthly index that gives a very precise picture of what is happening locally. The November numbers show a hint of growth. It's a start to what could be a modest recovery.

E.B. Green's Steakhouse, the white tablecloth restaurant in the Hyatt Regency Buffalo, has been recognized as the "number two best steakhouse" in the nation by Tom Horan's America's Top Ten E.B. GREEN'S Independent Steakhouses" for 2011. Horan says the list is based on quality, service value and ambiance. E.B. Green;'s was No. 3 last year. This year's No. 1 is Charley's Steakhouse in Orlando.

Gas prices are creeping up. Some blame higher oil prices and the weak U.S. dollar. Whatever the Gasprices reasons, the Buffalo Niagara region always ranks among the higher priced regions for gas in the nation. Local and state taxes contribute quite a bit to that distinction.

Who is getting hired, promoted and honored?
