The City of Buffalo is looking to expand operations at The Hatch on the waterfront.

Plans are being made to expand the kitchen, the menu and the seating. Another consideration is to add liquor to its beer and wine offerings. Mayor Brown is requesting $1.3 million in capital spending for the project.

"My administration continues to make major investments at Erie Basin Marina because we know people want more access to Buffalo’s beautiful waterfront, a premier downtown and regional attraction that’s filled with the potential for even more economic growth,”  said Mayor Brown.  “The Hatch Restaurant continues to grow in popularity.  Improvements to the restaurant will only enhance the experience of visitors who have made Erie Basin Marina among their favorite summer-time destinations.”

In 2012, the city spent nearly a million dollars ($930,000) on improvements which included a new $400,000 Boardwalk, as well as new handicap accessible restrooms, and new security gates for boaters at the Marina. 

Construction will soon begin on the building of a new Ice Cream Gazebo, with an additional project cost of $406,000.  The anticipated $1.3 million in capital funds will be spent on another round of major upgrades at the Hatch, including a new second story patio. 

It is hoped the work can be completed for next summer.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
