To most Buffalo eaters, Larkinville means Food Truck Tuesday dinners, but the downtown complex is making a bid for weekday lunch attention with a new menu at The Filling Station.

Chef Kevin Perrin, formerly chef de cuisine and fine dining standout Rue Franklin, is offering dishes like a roasted cauliflower and spinach salad ($8) with orange and Kalamata olive vinaigrette, scratch soups, and a daily quiche and pasta.

Sandwiches include cider-braised pork loin ($10) with caraway mayonnaise, a cheeseburger on brioche ($11) and a salmon bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwich ($11).

Located next to the Larkinville plaza at 745 Seneca St., The Filling Station is a repurposed 1930s gas station once part of the nearby Larkin Soap Co. It’s open 11 a.m.-3 p.m. weekdays, with free parking across the street. Phone: 362-2665.
