BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) - HarborCenter announced Wednesday the new sports bar will be called (716) Food and Sport.

The new 13,000 square foot restaurant will be located at the corner of Scott and Washington Streets. The restaurant will feature fare that is highlighted by Western New York culinary favorites, with an emphasis on locally produced ingredients. The menu will be complimented by an extensive collection of craft beers and signature cocktails. More than 40 beer selections will be available, with 20 varieties on tap.

The restaurant will include a 40-foot long feature bar, along with complimentary island bars on both the first and second floors. The bar tops will be made to replicate the ice of a hockey rink, illuminated to create a unique and specialty bar experience.

HarborCenter officials are hoping (716) will provide customers a unique and exciting viewing experience for all sporting events, featuring a 38-foot video screen, the largest restaurant screen in the continental United States. An additional 55 big screen televisions will be on display throughout the two-floor establishment, including individual in-booth televisions with dedicated sound.

The restaurant will bring more than 150 jobs to downtown Buffalo, and will be committed to hiring the best local talent in the hospitality industry.
