Sinatra's to be replaced by larger Tonawanda restaurant

Sinatra’s, the Kenmore Avenue star of Italian-American dining, plans to demolish its building, and move into a new, bigger building across the street.

“This spring we’re going to start digging,” said John Sinatra, who opened the restaurant in 1981. He said the project would he led by his son, developer Nick Sinatra.

The current restaurant, at 938 Kenmore Ave., will make way for a parking lot. The new place will be built across the street, in Tonawanda. There was last a gas station there.

The first floor will be dining and banquet space, with eight apartments above it, Sinatra said. It’s not clear yet how much dinner seating will increase, but the project can include the whole block, he said. The new facility would allow Sinatra’s to get into the banquet business in a bigger way, he said.
