Map: Riverside Park
Get out and explore the Riverside Park neighborhood and VegFest…
1 Riverside Park / 2607 Niagara St
Designed by Olmsted’s firm after his retirement, the park that sits on a bluff overlooking the Niagara River on Buffalo’s northwest corner will host this weekend’s VegFest.
2 Riverwalk Trail + Bike Path
Connected to Riverside Park by a pedestrian bridge where the river splits around Grand Island, the riverwalk trail is a highlight the area’s bikeways and waterfront access.
3 Lin Restaurant / 927 Tonawanda St
Homegrown restaurant serving Thai and Burmese comfort food by eager-to-please staff. Whatever your order, finish with the mango ice cream.
4 Suzy Q’s / 2829 Niagara St
Like the neighborhood around it, not much has changed about this place in decades; you’ll get treated like family while eating some of the best BBQ in WNY.
5 Croatian Club / 226 Condon Ave
The time-capsule bar inside the Holy Name of Jesus Croatian Fraternal Union Lodge #557, or simply the Cro, opens over the weekend for beers and slivovitz.
6 Riverside Cafe / 800 Tonawanda St
Breakfast sandwiches start at $1.99.
7 Eddie’s River Grill / 70 Aqua Ln
An almost private slice of the river shared with Stinger’s Marina, for an area short on waterfront dining options, Eddie’s goes above and beyond. Pub food with seafood features and live music on weekends.
