Richert's newest eatery adds fuel to BBQ


Tonawanda News — Cyndi, who is managing the deli and is a pastry chef at Torches next door, is also crafting up delicious desserts for the new spot, including a banana cake with cream cheese frosting and a layered fudge brownie.

The deli is now open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, but Richert said he will eventually open up a patio behind the restaurant for nighttime eating and private parties. 

“I’m hoping to make it very laid back,” he said. “The kind of place where you come, have some micro beers, and we’ll offer a more limited menu with wine and cheese specials.”

He’s also got more plans in the works for that 1962 barbecuer, which will be available for private parties, too. 

“How awesome will that be, to see that roll up to your backyard?” Richert said. 

He will also use the trailer to cook Sunday brunch, with menu items that have their own flair. There’s K-Rock’s Homeboys, potatoes that were “formerly available only to friends and family,” and The College Kid, which features polish sausage, sauerkraut, Wheaties and a Blue Moon side car “to pour on your cereal, stupid.”
