Wondering What to Eat Based on your Horoscope?
by Meredith DeLuca
Try something new – let the stars decide which restaurant you’ll try next in Buffalo Niagara
Capricorn (Dec 22nd – Jan 19th)
Capricorns are known for being dependable and hard-working and honestly, a little impatient. Try a turkey sandwich from Frankie’s Donuts & Pizza served on Italian Bread. You’ll appreciate the no fuss simple familiarity of a delicious turkey sandwich and at Frankie’s you won’t have to wait long. Also, you can eat it with one hand at your desk and we know you love to work hard, Capricorn!
Aquarius (Jan 20th – Feb 18th)
Since you’re so unique and eclectic, Aquarius you’ll want something to nom on that matches your flare. Try Avocado Tacos from Local Kitchen & Beer Bar. These griddled Naan bread wedges stuffed with hummus, goat cheese, tomatoes, avocado, baby spinach and served with chipotle razz sauce and wild bill fries are an explosion of flavor that any Aquarius will appreciate. It’s just as unique as you are!
Pisces (Feb 19th-March 20th)
It’s no surprise that Pisces people love a good aquatic dish. And here in WNY there’s no better fish dish than a good old-fashioned fish fry. Head to Wellington Pub for their amazing Friday Fish Fry. Feeling extra hungry? Start your meal with the Seafood Chowder and the Buffalo Shrimp served Cajun style.
If you’re a fan of fish fries – or fried things in general – the Wellington Pub on Hertel Ave. in Buffalo offers one of the most delicious crispedy, crunchedy fish fries in town
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
An Aries is known for being a reliable fire sign so you’ll want something that sizzles for dinner! And we all know who puts the sizzle in steaks: well, Russell’s of course! For you, Aries we suggest a dependable yet delicious Filet Mignon from Russell’s Steaks Chops & More.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
Tauruses appreciate their meals and like to savor the flavor of each bite. If you plan on dining with a Taurus, be prepared to stay for awhile! For our Taurus friends, we recommend Fazzoletti e Prosciutto di Anatra from Ristorante Lombardo. This dish has a lot to be savored with caramelized mushrooms, duck prosciutto, peas, truffle crema, and Piave. We know you’ll need an appetizer and dessert, too so we suggest the table-side Caesar salad to start and the sinfully decadent Frou Frou Cake and dark chocolate gelato to finish.
Gemini (May 21st- June 20th)
Geminis are complex creatures that often have (at least) two sides to them. With that kind of twin energy, we suggest the Jerk Chicken from Pearl Street Grill. Complete with twin marinated chicken breasts, topped with grilled pineapple and served with red beans & rice and seasonal vegetables, this dish is perfect for any side of a Gemini. You’ll especially appreciate the delicious juxtaposition of the spicy jerk flavors mixed with the sweet grilled pineapples.
Geminis – don’t be a jerk. Just try the Jerk Chicken from Pearl Street Grill
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
Cancers are known for their sensitive sides so you’ll want something that’s extra comforting. We suggest the Chicken Pot Pie from Eagle House Restaurant. It doesn’t get more comforting than chicken pot pie and your Cancerian heart will take comfort in knowing you’re dining in the oldest restaurant in Erie County.
Leo (July 23rd- Aug 22nd)
Leos are known for their royal tendencies and for their flare for the finer things in life. With this in mind, we suggest a one-of-a-kind experience at Skylon Tower. You’ll love taking all the Instagram pics to show your friends the sky-high meal you enjoyed. And you’ll love the idea of an international dining experience. We suggest starting out with the Large Baked Burgundy Escargot. For an entree, your Leo tastebuds will enjoy Broiled Rock Lobster Tails as you dine like the King or Queen that you (think you) are.
Virgo (Aug 23rd-Sep 22nd)
Virgos tend to be extremely health-conscious and prefer lighter fare. That’s why we recommend the delicious and simple Mixed Tomato Salad from Fortuna’s Restaurant. This yummy salad comes complete with tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and onions served with a specially-seasoned olive oil dressing. Enjoy grilled chicken breast with green beans to follow and your healthy Virgo heart will be more than satisfied.
For all the Libras out there, the The 755 Restaurant & Lounge offers vegetarian fare like the plate pictured above, with expertly prepared eggplant, cauliflower, hummus, falafel and pita
Libra (Sep 23rd-Oct 22nd)
Libras are avid animal lovers. For this reason, we suggest dining at the 755 Restaurant & Lounge and enjoying one of their many vegan dishes, like a Falafel wrap and tabouli salad. Not only is this combo delicious, but we know our Libra friends will be pleased to know it’s animal- free.
Scorpio (Oct 23rd-Nov 21st)
Scorpios know how to sting and aren’t afraid to take a step on the spicy side. That’s why we suggest the Hot Peppers from Gallo Coal Fire Kitchen. These Hot Peppers are stuffed with Nduja Sausage, Ricotta and Fontina Cheese and have a kick that’s just as hot as you are, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (Nov 22nd-Dec 21st)
Sagittarius people are adventurous with a sense of wanderlust. You love to travel to all corners of the globe experiencing signature dishes everywhere you go. Why not try the 716’s signature dish of wings but with a little global flare? We recommend the Thai Chili and Garlic wings from Gene McCarthy’s. After all, it doesn’t get more ethnically diverse than eating Thai flavored wings in an Irish bar! Make it a complete trip around the world with Street Tacos and Bavarian Pretzels to delight your taste buds and your sense of adventure.
