Plans for the HarborCenter in downtown Buffalo are HUGE!

There's going to be a brand-new restaurant/bar that will head to the record books. It's 13,000 square feet and two stories.

The restaurant will be called (716) (with the parentheses with it), and it will be a mix of some local favorites and upscale items and will include the largest TV screen in America at 38 feet tall.

Dominic Verni, the general manager of the restaurant, said yesterday that the name was chosen to relate to Buffalonians:

How often do we hear our friends say ‘back in the 716’ when returning home? Or ‘missing the 716’ when they’ve been away too long? 716 is synonymous with home, pride and fun. That’s Buffalo. That’s 716.

(716) is expected to create about 150 jobs this fall.
