On a Monday night over 55 Yelp Buffalo Elites went back to the 20s to celebrate the recent reopening of Canvas@1206 with a Mobster and Moll soirée. Newly appointed Chef Pierre Carriere welcomed us with delectable plates of crab cakes, calamari, stuffed banana peppers, pasta bolognese, margarita pizza, olive empanada, fried cheese ravioli, mini-turkey sandwiches and chicken pot pie. Elites enjoyed premium clandestinely nano-brewed libations from Community Beer Works as well as sexy martinis, while kickin' back to the jazzy sounds of the Mark Filsinger Jazz Trio.
Elites were taken back with the care that was put into the evening. "The venue and everything that went with it was top notch! Fabulous photography and artwork adorned the walls and a jazz-fest-worthy group kept the mood just right." For Nicole H, there was no sinfully better way to end the night than when the surprise dessert came out: "the dark chocolate lava cake with strawberries and chocolate sauce was a more than perfect sweet ending."
The classy atmosphere had Lindsay A sounding off: "Bill Sabio is on the path to creating mass hysteria for his delicious food on Hertel Ave!" We couldn't agree more. Bill Sabio has done a great job renovating this restaurant and putting together a world-class staff. If you haven't had the chance to enjoy a weekend of jazz music and beautifully-crafted food, check out the new Canvas@1206! Bring a date, friends, your mom…whoever. You're bound to have a great time.
Big thank you to Rick Warne for taking such great pictures, the entire staff at Canvas@1206 and Community Beer Works.
