Great food in Rochester/Buffalo/Niagara area?

My friend is visiting Rochester, buffalo, and the Canadian side of Niagara this weekend asked for recommendations. Do you guys have any? Any genre, any cost. Thank you so much!

Here's my Buffalo list:
- Rue Franklin: For a really nice meal. French-inspired, but also modern and seasonal.
- Blue Monk: For great pub food and an admirable beer selection
- Schwabl's: For a seriously old-timey Buffalo experience; waitresses in uniforms, beef on 'weck (this is a Buffalo food staple), Tom and Jerrys
- Anchor Bar: For the Buffalo wings
- Paula's Donuts: Buffalo's version of Peter Pan Donuts.

Go to the Canadian side and go to Inniskillen and do a tasting of one of the best dessert wines in the world!

I would call Schwabi's to make sure they're open for business. A car hit their building and for now temporally closed.

There is always Dinosaur BBQ in Rochester.

Remember, the Finger Lakes wine region is only an hour away and one of the top wine regions in the country. Always a good day trip from Rochester, and Skaneateles is a great little town to hob nob with the occasional celebrity.

In Rochester, try 2 Vine for upscale dining, Jines on Park Avenue for more casual fare and for a real Rochester experience, try Nick Tahoe's for a garbage plate.
