If you like food, drinks and games get ready for a new experience coming to downtown Buffalo. Misuta Chow's restaurant/bar/arcade is heading to 521 Main Street right across the street from the Hyatt Regency. The team behind the new establishment tells 7 Eyewitness News that the hope is to open the first two floors of the three story building by the fall.
Misuta Chow's will highlight 80s pop culture and classic arcade games while offering Asian street food "with a soulful twist".
"We want to bring the energy and life of the alley ways of Tokyo City. We've had the idea for a couple of years but have been waiting for the right spot", said Christie Allen who is currently the Director of Operations for The Shatzel Group (Allen Burger Venture, ThinMan, Colter Bay)
The restaurant/bar will be on the first floor and will include twenty-four draft beers, classic cocktails, extensive whisky, bourbon and sake selections. The menu will offer bento boxes, bahn mi sandwiches and dumplings.
The second floor will boast classic arcade games including everything from Pac-Man to Space Invaders to Donkey Kong.
Joining Allen on the project are celebrated professional musician Johny Chow of the band Stone Sour, Lorenz Wustner and consulting Executive Chef Dunbar Berdine. "We are proud of the team that we have put together. We are really excited."
The third floor will open at a later date.
