Croce Ready for More Development at Statler City

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Redevelopment in Buffalo's been a big topic, and one of the sites we keep hearing about is the Statler, which reopened about a year ago under the ownership of developer Marc Croce.

Our Scott Levin spoke with Croce about the building's future.  He says they've met the first couple goals; to make the building stable, and start bringing in the crowds.

The first three levels have been restored, to the tune of $6 million.  Now Croce says it's time to start looking up to the upper rooms.

DiTondo's Offers Red Sauce in a Nostalgic Setting

DiTondo's Offers Red Sauce in a Nostalgic Setting

If Alli and I are driving down Seneca Street for Italian, it’s always been to visit Chef’s. We’ve heard about DiTondo’s for a while but the main problem was their limited hours (dinner service only on Friday nights from what I understand). But on a Friday night when we couldn’t think of a place to go, we decided to finally try DiTondo’s and see if they could offer some type of unique spin on ‘red sauce Italian’.

The building’s interior (specifically their bar) is almost exactly what I thought it would be, dated in a way that felt nostalgic instead of sad. The bar (surprisingly) had a couple of local micro brews on tap and there appeared to be a collection of regulars having dinner. DiTondo’s has a pretty strong following and you could tell many of the diners ate there on a very regular basis and the waitress’ seemed to know everyone’s names.

Cobblestone District Business Talks About NHL Lockout Impact

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The NHL lockout, putting the brakes on what would have been the start of the Sabres home pre-season schedule Wednesday night.

Not much wass happening outside First Niagara Center on a night where lots of fans would be milling around if there was no lockout.

We spoke with the manager of a bar and restaurant near the arena, Lagerhaus 95, about their plans to deal with lost business.

"We're not solely reliant just on the Sabres. It's very unfortunate that the lockout is here. It would be extra revenue for everybody in the whole area, but we're not gonna hang our hat on the fact that the Sabres aren't around right now," said Ben Lewis.

Senate Approves Name for Federal Courthouse

BUFFALO, NY - The Senate has passed legislation to name the Buffalo Federal Courthouse after Robert H. Jackson.

All it needs is President Obama's signature.
