Bourbon & Butter closing, ending Andrzejewski's Lafayette stay

Bourbon & Butter, Mike Andrzejewski’s restaurant in Hotel @ the Lafayette, is closing after service Saturday night.

“We’ve had some great people working for us, and some great customers,” the veteran Buffalo chef-owner said. “We appreciate everything everyone’s done, but it’s time to move on.”

Andrzejewski opened Mike A’s in the refurbished hotel in 2012 as a fine dining establishment with a luxe menu. In 2014, he renamed it Bourbon & Butter, refocused on midmarket comfort food and downsized to the former Mike A’s Art Deco bar.

“Unfortunately, our lease is up and it made more sense for the hotel overall to combine the first floor under one tenant,” Andrzejewski said. “Most of our employees are being rehired at our other restaurants. Any remaining outstanding gift cards will be honored at Tappo or SeaBar at full value.”
