Myrtle, 40, was stopped in the 400 block of Second Street the night of June 22 after police received a report of a possible drunken driver in the area. Officers said her car had very darkly tinted…

The Town of Porter in Niagara County has found itself caught in the middle of a waterfront dispute between neighbors on Lake Road, along picturesque Lake Ontario, that may prompt the town to …

We are not mathematicians, but we love food and we especially love pie (even though “pies” aren’t technically what Pi Day represents, but who cares). All being said, we hope you do decide to celebrate “Pi Day" with a pie. If nothing else, it's a decent reason to have pie on a Monday. Aim for the biggest piece, especially if it’s a pie from Sanger Farms & Bakery in You…

I recently ate a cricket. In all fairness, the cricket was fried, covered in Mexican spices and served atop a house-made requesón, a Latin American cheese similar to ricotta, but it was a cricket nevertheless. Living in the age of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, and Anthony Bourdain, I realize that unless I am gobbling down a living tarantula and flossing with its tiny…

The biggest surprise at Jaguar at the Bistro is not that it's a Mexican restaurant in Youngstown, almost 30 minutes by car from downtown Buffalo. It's not the fine-dining cuisine, the family friendly atmosphere or the weekly live music, either. It's the cocktails. The restaurant's drink list does not look like much, at first glance. The bar is a small, U-shaped outpost in…

Up in Youngstown, chef Victor Parra Gonzalez has been expanding the boundaries of Mexican food in Western New York at his restaurant just outside the entrance to Old Fort Niagara, Jaguar at the Bistro. His elegant, sparse plates are a world apart from the rice and beans plates that define Mexican food for most Buffalo area eaters. Check out his version of chilaquiles, the…

By Andrew Z. Galarneau Here's three things I wouldn't miss at Jaguar at the Bistro (110 Main St., Youngstown, 745-7141), which I reviewed in today's Buffalo News. Above is the beef barbacoa taco, chile-braised beef on a house-made corn tortilla. While $9 is a outrageous price for a taco truck taco, this was fine dining. What's outrageous was the flavor. I wished I had a …
