Buffalo's last German restaurant (Scharf Schiller) is closing
Scharf's Schiller Park Restaurant, Buffalo's last true German restaurant, is closing by the end of the month: http://www.buffalonews.com/business/article933824.ece
Like many other Great Lakes cities, Buffalo used to have a significant German population. The closing of Scharf's is a sign of the times, though. The only other restaurant in Buffalo I know of that has German items on the menu is Ulrich's.
