New York State Seizes the Property of Popular Buffalo Restaurant
We're into the third week of February and this time of the year is always a low-business time for the service industry, especially restaurants.
It's cold and snowy, with people more inclined to stay inside for lunch or dinner. However, Buffalo and Western New York has a bit more of an urge to venture out to places, since we're so used to this kind of weather and have accepted it as a way of life.
Buffalo is known for wings and then beef on weck, but Buffalo is home to fantastic pizzerias. It's also home to a ton of pizzerias, with most of them serving up Buffalo-style pizza; which is a slightly thicker style of pizza with cup-and-char pepperoni and a sweeter sauce.
However, there are New York-style pizzerias in Western New York, with one of the most popular being Zetti's Pizza & Pasta in Amherst. It's located off of Flint and Maple roads, near the north campus of the University at Buffalo.
On Friday, news came of Zetti's closing and it may be for good. Buffalo Eats broke the news on social media that Zetti's property was seized by the state for nonpayment of taxes.
It's uncertain when or if Zetti's will reopen but for now, that's in limbo due to these notices on the front door of the pizzeria.
Zetti's has been at its location in Amherst for over a decade now and has been a haven for students at the University at Buffalo's campus.
