A brand new buffet is making its way to Transit Road. People are excited about the new addition that will go in the former spot of the Old Country Buffett.

The new sushi and seafood buffet will be in the same plaza that keeps seeing businesses leave--Brennan's Bower Bar, This Little Pig and Bed Bath & Beyond in the last 18 months have all left.

Where is this new seafood buffet going to be?

Umi Sushi & Seafood Buffet is set to be at 4401 Transit Rd, Buffalo, NY 14221.

When is Umi Sushi & Seafood Buffet going to be opening up in Clarence? According to WGRZ, they are going to be opened up in the next 6 months or so.

The owner of the Umi Buffet also is opening up the K-BBQ & Hot Pot at 4224 Maple Road in Amherst later this month.

According to Buffalo Business First, there have been over 100 restaurants that have closed in the Western New York area in 2023. That number seems like a lot, and it is, but there have been almost the same amount of new openings in the area. It seems like more and more chain and national brands have been coming to the area including Crumbl Cookies, the Wind Japanese and Thai on Transit Road and Mission BBQ.

Other restaurants that are set to open up in the Buffalo area in 2024 are:

  • Resurgence Brewing at 6585 Transit Rd in East Amherst (right by Plato's closet)
  • Buffalo Bros Burgers  in the Village of Hamburg
  • Shalooby Loofer Brewing - 10737 Main Street, Clarence 14031
