Happy Monday, all! So excited to be kicking off a series of guest posts from locals and bloggers alike who know what it means to date in WNY.

Today, we are thrilled to introduce you to Lucy, the voice behind Write. Style. Travel.
From fashion advice to keeping it real with honest posts about struggles we all share, Lucy has an authentic and lovable voice which keeps me looking for her next post. We were thrilled when she offered to do a guest piece on her favorite date night spot in the city….Read on!
Growing up in North Buffalo, I must’ve driven by The Steer on Main Street at least 1,000 times before I ever went there.In college, it was known as the UB bar. I remember not even realizing they had a dining room.
You go in and you’re immediately greeted with a large rustic wooden bar and open kitchen in the back. The dining space is located in a separate room with a fireplace and string lights adding to the warm living room-like atmosphere.
I think my favorite part of the menu has to be their craft burgers. You pick your patty- veggie, beef, chicken or shrimp – and choose from an array of topping combinations. My favorite is the Balsamic: caramelized onion, mushroom and mozzarella which I sometimes sub for goat cheese. Dave likes the Elvis with peanut butter, bacon, honey and banana. Before you knock it, try it! It’s surprisingly good.
Then I discovered the best salad I’ve ever had a few weeks ago – arugula, pan seared goat cheese, peppered tofu, caramelized pears, carrots, pomegranate seeds and balsamic dressing. Sadly, it’s on their specials menu so I’m hoping it stays for a while. To this day, I put pomegranate seeds in my salad at home now!
