Have an anniversary, birthday or another special occasion coming up? Thanks to local chef and Grand Island resident Sam Reda, you’ll be able to celebrate at a new fine dining restaurant located at 1879 Whitehaven Road in the former home of Baked Cupcakery.
It’s called Zobud Bistro, and it offers a mouth-watering selection of Mediterranean-inspired cuisine in a cozy, welcoming environment.
According to Zobud Bistro’s website, the restaurant’s meals “capture the freshness of the sea with the savory flavor of the island presented with a unique progressive American flair.”
Zobud just held its soft opening last week, but it’s already generating quite a buzz in Western New York’s restaurant scene, and with good reason. Sam Reda has been the head chef at several popular restaurants over the years, including Biac’s World Bistro, Brownstone Bistro and the Buffalo Chophouse. Now, he’s excited to open his own restaurant just a few minutes from his home on Grand Island. Zobud Bistro’s name was inspired by his mother-in-law’s nickname for his daughter, Zoe.
“They were extremely close and Teddie passed away this year,” explained Reda in a recent interview with The Buffalo News. He named the restaurant as “a sort of tribute to their relationship.”
The menu at Zobud Bistro includes a variety of classic brunch fare such as eggs benedict and French toast, as well as larger dinner entrées like seafood paella and chicken Milanese. You can check out the complete menu here.
