Patina 250 able to seat more than 130 people and Jake's Cafe able to seat about 20, will open later this summer. Both restaurants are on Delaware Avenue connected to Delaware North's headquarters.
"Jake's Cafe is going to be a street side cafe seating about 20 people. We'll have a fresh ingredient menu with a live cook line," said Jeff Sellers the VP of Development and Construction for Delaware North.
Jake's Cafe, a grab-and-go style restaurant, will be open from breakfast and lunch.
The atmosphere inside Patina 250 will be a bit different than Jake's Patina 250 is a casual-sophisticated dining option featuring American dishes cooked by wood fire.
"We'll have a 15 person bar and a 16 person private dining room," said Sellers. "Some of the main features are the custom light fixtures, a lot of architectural elements that you can see through the two story glass curtain wall on Delaware Avenue."
Sellers said he believes the main attraction will be Patina's expo kitchen which will allow guests to see their chefs in action.
The top section of windows part of the glass wall on Delaware will feature artwork created by Buffalo artists. The bottom portion of windows will remain clear allowing views from the inside and outside of the restaurants.
Guests of the restaurant and hotel will also be able to enjoy an outside court area.
There will be entrances on the street side as well as from inside the Westin Hotel lobby.
Attached you'll find renderings of what the restaurants will look like. Together both dining places will hire about 100 new employees.
