Jennifer Boye is one of Buffalo's culinary stars, but unless you've been lucky enough to stay at the Mansion on Delaware, you probably haven't gotten to try her best work. Fans of the Nickel City Chef live cooking competition have gotten to see her moves, though.
Boye is a local success story who started her culinary career at Erie Community College. Now she attends to the private event dining needs of guests at the boutique hotel, though the public can attend the hotel's Cocktails on the Lawn events during the summer. She's also a partner in Fables Cafe, in the downtown library.
The Mansion only serves a light continental breakfast to guests, there is no room service, nor is there any sort of restaurant for guests inside. If people want to taste Jen's food they actually have to attend a private event held at the Mansion, or one of their public summertime Cocktails on the Lawn events.
BuffaloEats got her to spend a few minutes answering questions about her life in food, favorite places to eat and her hopes for the future of the Buffalo restaurant community. She's a gourmet through and through who confesses to loving the FREE NACHOS at Founding Fathers just like everybody else.
