Prescott's Provisions is one of the City of Tonawanda's newest restaurants right on the Erie Canal.
"There really isn't anything in particular that I would say meets this caliber of restaurant" Owner Don Benoit said.
The restaurant will feature a full bar, dinner service, outdoor seating, and a small cafe with pastries. It will try and compete will all of the restaurants across the canal in North Tonawanda.
"There's some good restaurants over here (in the City of Tonawanda) but nothing really on the water" Benoit said.
So that is where Prescott's Provisions comes in. They are using prime real estate on the corner of Niagara and Filmore to try and make the area along the canal much more vibrant and lively.
"I don't want to alter the community," Benoit said, "I just want to enhance it."
Benoit hopes that, by bringing this new restaurant to the canal, it can only encourage more development in the future.
"I really think that people are going to see this and say you know what why can't I put something nearby," Benoit said, "and see that there is a lot of potential down here in the City of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda."
Prescott's Provisions is located on 40 East Niagara Street in the City of Tonawanda and opens officially Tuesday, June 26th.
