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.

Check out The Archer at its website here, and let us know where to go next on Facebook and in the comments section.
