CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Santora's Pizza Pub & Grill has announced it will be opening a third location in Western New York.
The third location will be at the Walden Galleria, inside the former Gordon Biersch across from the Cheesecake Factory.
Santora's says it will be a restaurant and brew house, with plans to brew its own beer under the name "1927 Brew House."
"We are excited to be opening our first brewery location. It gives us the ability to expand our brand identity, produce styles of our own beer and to offer them at all of our locations,” said Paul Santora. “We have hired an amazing brew master with years of experience and plan to put the same love and history into beer making as we do our menu items.”
Santora's has been in WNY since 1927 when Fioravanti Santora began making and selling pizza in the Buffalo area. Currently there are locations on Transit Road and Millersport Highway.
"Santora’s Pizza Pub & Grill at Walden Galleria will operate with a full menu including a variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, strip steak, skillet salmon, pasta, pizza and, of course, chicken wings," a release states. "The brew house will craft several different beer types and styles including a Pilsner, Ale, IPA, Stout and Hard Seltzer."
The plan is to open the restaurant and brewery later this year.
