The hospitality management developer Delaware North Companies on Monday announced it has completed a $3.8 million renovation at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport that includes a new restaurant. The Queen City Kitchen is succeeding the former Landmark restaurant, and in a larger, 2,350-square-foot area.
The restaurant has two sections -- one for full sit-down service, the other for quick-service purchases and featuring a horseshoe-shaped bar. In a nod to regional tastes, the bar sells a selection of Canadian beers as well as New York State craft beers from the Hamburg Brewing Company, Flying Bison Brewing, Southern Tier Brewing and Ellicottville Brewing Company. Among the sandwich selections is a Beef On 'Weck, the iconic Buffalo sandwich consisting of thin-sliced au jus beef on a salt- and caraway-studded kemmelweck bun.
Other parts of the renovation include a pair of venues for the Jet Set convenience store-newsstand shops that sell to-go sandwiches and snacks, Buffalo-branded merchandise, and reading matter -- one shop near the security gate and one on the east end of the terminal; and, Fifth & Main, a luxury boutique carrying popular designer products such as luggage, handbags, and jewelry.
A terminal map of the airport showing all its shops and services is available online.
