The Howling Rooster, a breakfast and lunch spot at 299 Kenmore Ave., Tonawanda, is moving into the former Milano’s building on Englewood Avenue.
Owner Caren Paterniti said she’s bought the building at 529 Englewood Ave., about half a mile away. The Kenmore Avenue place will stay open until Nov. 27.
The new place will have the “same staff, same great cooks, and same great customers that have hung in with us through two years of construction on Kenmore Avenue,” she said.
Paterniti plans to open the new place by Dec. 1. The Kenmore Avenue Howling Rooster will serve lunch on Nov. 27, close, and then if all goes well open in the new spot on Englewood the next morning, Paterniti said.
The menu, including breakfast specialties like its Roo-Ben omelet, will not change, she said.

“We are going to expand the menu to dinner once we’re more comfortable in the new space,” Paterniti said. The new place will have about twice as many seats, to fit about 100 people, and offer a banquet room. She will be applying for a beer and wine license.
