Opportunity Knocks: Turnkey restaurant space at 500 Seneca

A sensational restaurant location is up for grabs at 500 Seneca. Formerly Dobutsu and then Compass Run, the Toutant team of James and Connie Roberts is handling the leasing of the 5000 square foot space, which comes equipped with a seemingly never-ending assemblage of commercial kitchen equipment and dining amenities.

“Ideal concepts (in our opinion) would be an all day concept utilizing the building and surrounding business community density, full a la carte service (as we did), or even a catering/a la carte hybrid,” said James. “We are in a pretty unique position to lease this space to a potential operator with a minimum bar of entry to restaurant ownership.”

The 500 Seneca building complex not only has numerous resident businesses occupying the various floors, it’s also located a stone’s throw from Larkinville, and is in close proximity to the 190 and downtown Buffalo. Ditondo and Chef’s are nearby, as are Belt Line Brewery, Buffalo Brewing Company. Inside the building, there is a large multi-story interior green atrium area, surrounded by a number of businesses including Animal Outfitters Doggy Daycare, The Lunch Box eatery, Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork, Swoon Buffalo, and Winkler & Samuels wine purveyors.

“My initial thoughts about the space are based around the fact that it is built as a fully functional high quality restaurant that has operated at a high level and considerable volume for many years,” James noted. “It is truly turnkey. Neutral decor and color scheme, outfitted for maximum production levels both for culinary and cocktail/beverage programs, great storage and service areas, handicap accessible, free well lit off street parking (a rarity downtown), interior courtyard balcony patio seating, private dining area, and high quality, durable equipment. Along with the space, Connie and I are offering consultation services for the new operator, including logo and branding services, web/print collateral, menu design, operational / efficiency advisement, and maintenance assistance.”
