Well-known chef adds personal touch to new menu at Westby’s
Venezia, originally from Buffalo, spent the past 30 years in California where he worked along side Wolfgang Puck, and as a personal chef to actor Charlie Sheen. He brings with him years of experience and his personal touch, which makes the menu items at Wesby’s taste just right.
“We are grateful to have him here,” said Westby as he spoke about Venezia.
The remodeled establishment offers a family friendly dining experience, with a new soup and salad bar, and still highlights the bar scene with its happy hour specials from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, live music on Friday nights, and especially its Sabres game special - where the game can be seen on one of the 13 high definition televisions.
In celebration of the recently lifted lockout, Westby’s is offering a $16.99 special, which includes a large pizza with one topping and a pitcher of Labatts Blue or Labatts Blue Light draft beer during every Sabres game.
“We have reinvented ourselves as Gastropub, specializing in Buffalo cuisine. This is well-known more in the big cities,” said Westby. “We have fresh food, cooked daily. Some of the items include freshly made pasta, calamari and mussels.”
Customers will be greeted with a new menu, prepared by Venezia, with the assistance of Westby and Occhino, including freshly made pastas, seafood, steak, roast beef and more.
A few menu items include: Linguini Con Frutti Di Marie, shrimp, squid, mussels, garlic and tomato sauce; New York Steak, a grilled 12-ounce sirloin with five peppercorn and blue cheese crust, homemade onion rings and spinach; Mediterranean Seafood Stew, clams, mussels, shrimp and calamari in a spicy tomato white wine broth; Pot Roasted Beef, cooked low and slow in red wine, with spinach and mashed potatoes; and the Guinness Barbecue Burger, half pound ground sirloin, smoked bacon, melted cheddar, frizzled onions and Westby’s own Guinness barbecue sauce on a buttery brioche bun.
