Anthony Bourdain the CNN and chef nailed it about Buffalo:

“Buffalo is a different culture. I look at Buffalo and Buffalonians as a different culture now. Ten years ago, I would have looked at them as those poor guys who live upstate, and I’m lucky enough to live in Manhattan. That’s the way I would have seen it 10 years ago. Now I see it as a very distinct personality, a very distinct culture with its own architecture, its own kinda feel. It’s actually a weirdly wonderful place. Even in the winter. I think it took me traveling around the world to get to that point”.
