Mediterranean restaurant to open downtown

A Mediterranean restaurant in Amherst plans to open an eatery this fall in the Genesee Gateway Building in downtown Buffalo.

Natalie’s Mediterranean Eatery will operate a breakfast-and-lunch establishment in 1,000 square feet of space in the redeveloped building at the intersection of Genesee and Oak streets. The restaurant, which has operated for 13 years on Millersport Highway, is known for homemade soups, salads and vegetarian food, and will add a breakfast menu with bagels, sandwiches and traditional Mediterranean breakfast wraps to its popular menu items when it opens downtown.

“The Genesee Gateway building has been beautifully restored, and is situated perfectly between downtown, the Medical Campus, and close to Larkinville,” said Maggie Hamilton, a sales associate at CBRE Buffalo who brokered the deal.

The Genesee Gateway owners are still seeking a tenant other than a restaurant to fill out the building, CBRE said.
