BUFFALO, N.Y. - For those that don't make hunting expeditions, wild game like bison, antelope and boar might not be a common choice for dinner.
One of downtown Buffalo's newest restaurants aims to change that.
Josh Archer opened up The Archer in December with the goal of creating a steakhouse that would stand out among the competition in Buffalo because of its menu- highlighted by the wild game.
Alongside steaks, fish and chicken dishes, customers will find everything from alligator to yak, a true test for adventurous eaters. The boar, antelope and salmon are among the most popular.
Archer say he got the idea from a previous job at a country club, where a wild game dinner each year allowed hunters to share meats that they had hunted in a giant buffet. The restaurant sources some meats locally and others from places as far away as New Zealand, with a focus on free-range and humanely-raised animals.
And now that the sun has returned, Archer is excited to open the patio to diners again- something else that's not common among restaurants downtown.
