Buffalo, New York– Courses in the Conservatory, the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens’ favorite dining event, returns to offer fresh summer fine dining in a farm-to-table dining experience on Friday, August 11, from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Conservatory Course returns to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens to offer a fine dining experience like no other. The greenhouse course was first introduced in winter 2022 and was so successful that it is now being held in summer for the first time to celebrate the harvest season.
Guests will have the opportunity to dine freely in the conservatory over a four-course locally sourced meal provided by Salvatore’s Hospitality, with each course served in a different greenhouse, creating a progressive dinner experience.
Your evening begins with a selection of seasonal appetizers and drinks next to a spectacular indoor waterfall, followed by delicious cocktails and a glass of wine at the open bar.
Guests then pass through four more greenhouses and into a newly renovated outdoor courtyard for appetizers and main courses. This gorgeous family-style table setting is filled with colorful flowers, lights, music, and the joyful atmosphere of golden hour sunsets. Each item on the menu is sourced from local farms and carefully prepared by Salvatore hospitality to create this delicious farm-to-table meal. The dinner, accompanied by live jazz buffalo music, sets the mood for a West Coast summer and is sure to be an unforgettable experience for friends and loved ones.
After dining, guests enter the Cloud Forest greenhouse to toast to a beautiful summer evening with a glass of champagne. Then, enjoy sweet treats at dusk in the Main Palm Dome and soak up the beauty of the botanical gardens for the rest of the evening.
This dinner costs $125 per person and includes a 4-course meal, open bar, access to the entire conservatory, and live music. Reservations are required for this event and must be completed by Friday, August 4th at 11:59pm. The full menu is available online at buffalogardens.com. We can accommodate dietary restrictions.
