It's all about a shot and a beer at Dick's Eastside Inn.
Strategically positioned across the street from the Broadway Market and in the shadow’s of Corpus ChristiChurch is Dick’s Eastside Inn (221 Lombard). A landmark among Buffalo landmarks, the tavern began life as Alice’s Grill in the late 1930s. When the business was taken over by Alice Michel's son Richard Michel, the name was changed to Dick’s Eastside Inn. Dick’s has always been a favorite of Market workers and shoppers. (Nothing like sharing a beer next to your butcher.)
Easter has always been a special time around the Broadway Market. From personnel experience, their have been a few “Good Friday” shopping trips that have turned into “A Great Friday” after a Bloody Mary using fresh Broadway Market horseradish (The bar opens daily at 9AM…plenty of time to purchase your bread and sausage across the street). While visiting, note the sagging bar back that the owner says, “keeps the bottles from falling off.”
Dick has the honor of being voted America’s Ugliest Bartender and also received the USMC Silver Helmut Award in 1989 for his grateful years of devoted humanitarian service to charities.
