'Top Chef' Star Fabio Viviani to Meet Fans at Amherst Store

'Top Chef' Star Fabio Viviani to Meet Fans at Amherst Store

In his travels around the world, Fabio Viviani has visited many places. But he's only passed through Western New York. That will change this weekend when he makes a special appearance in Amherst.

The Italian cuisinier and "Top Chef" fan favorite will participate in the grand opening celebration at BJ's Wholesale Club.

"I look forward to be at BJ's; we're going to be there for the event for the opening at the Amherst store. It's going to be great," he said in a phone interview. "We're going to raffle some cookbook, we're going to have some Q-and-As. It'll be a nice event."

Fabio will meet fans, sign copies of his new cookbook, "Fabio's Italian Kitchen," and, hopefully, have enough time left over to visit Niagara Falls.

"That's one of my top five wish list place to visit in the United States when I have time off," he said.

Around Town This Weekend!!

Woodcock Brothers Serves Great Beer in a Gorgeous Setting

Woodcock Brothers Serves Great Beer in a Gorgeous Setting

I heard about Woodcock Brewery’s opening a couple months ago because of an article by Buffalo Spree’s Julia Burke, but I had no idea where Wilson was (I still kind of don’t) and I assumed I’d probably never visit. Luckily a couple weeks ago my in-laws decided they wanted to visit the brewery for dinner and offered to drive us there, so we of course said yes. I didn’t see any pictures of the brewery or look at the menu before hand, so I was impressed when we pulled up to a massive building (a former Cold Storage facility) that appeared to have been seriously renovated.
