Buffalo is a great city, and worth checking out for bars, music and art. And architecture! On a recent trip with my buddies, we stopped into Tempo for drinks, but were soon spotted as ‘new faces’ by the chef/owner. Within minutes four samplings of food were in front of us (shown here). “I just wanted you to taste what we offer here.” Wow.
I asked other people at the bar what they liked best about Tempo.“It’s a sexy place.” I’d like to add that it’s stylish but not snobby – and that IS sexy. The customers know how to have fun and the owner knows how to win customers. Bravo.

P.S. American restaurant owners are THE BEST. Read all about it Kato’s favourite book, ‘Setting the Table’ by Danny Meyer. Danny owns most of my favourite New York City restaurants and has literally written THE book on customer service, and hospitality in general.
