Lasagna is the perfect dish for Western New York winters. When it's cold outside, I crave food that sticks to my ribs. Which is why I'm excited that there's a new restaurant serving up lasagna in Buffalo. Lloyal’s Famous Lasagna is now open and serving up delicious pasta plates. The restaurant is owned by Shawntorrian Travis. His mother also owns a restaurant in Buffalo - Park Vue. Lloyal's is located at 1122 Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo. Dishes include crab and lobster ravioli, broccoli, chicken and shrimp, and vegetable eggplant lasagna. You can check out their Facebook page here.

8. Pizza Hut
According to some scoop our sister station, WYRK got, Pizza Hut is supposed to be returning to Western New York this summer. I was definitely saddened when the national chain closed all its locations here due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE our Buffalo pizzerias, but The Hut has brought me consistent joy in every city I have lived in or visited. Lisa Bu posted the news on Facebook,
Got some interesting news Sunday while having lunch at the Pizza Hut in Pennsylvania. A staff member told us that Pizza Hut will be returning to Western New York! Ten locations will be opening throughout Western New York. New managers are currently being trained at the location we were at. All locations should be open by late summer. The staff member, not being too familiar with Western New York, remembered that one will be opening in Olean and another in Hamburg. That leaves 8 more to open up around the area. I can't wait. I miss Pizza Hut!!!
