Allentown is another part of Buffalo that is famous for its bars and restaurants.

Sadly, shocking news came on Thursday. Two famous Buffalo restaurants are set to close: one in the Elmwood Village and the other in Allentown.

According to their Facebook page, The Lenox Grill announced they will be permanently closing at the end of the month.

There was no reason given for the closure, but The Lenox Grill thanked their loyal customers for the many years of business.

This came an hour or two after news of Parivaar on Elmwood Avenue announcing its closure.

Buffalo Business First reports that the Indian fusion restaurant will close in late September, almost a year after they first opened.

Owner Priya Rathod says that she has been dealing with a leg injury that is not healing. She's always on her feet cooking for her restaurant and this decision was made in the best interest of her health. She wants the location to flourish in the Elmwood Village for someone else.

This news of both restaurants closing is unfortunate. They join the long list of restaurants which have closed since 2020 in Western New York.
