This week’s gift guide is curated by bloggers Buffalo Eats. Founder Donnie Burtless explains, “My wife Alli and I started the website back in 2009 as a way to keep track of what restaurants we were trying, we were previously both boring eaters and decided we wanted to change that. Slowly we started getting a bigger audience and we’ve managed to visit over 350 restaurants in that time. I’ve totally become a big food nerd, watching the Cooking Channel and reading magazines and blogs whenever I’m not working.”
