Rue Franklin Restaurant closes doors after more than 4 decades in Buffalo

Rue Franklin Restaurant has closed their doors for good. In a statement, the owners told Facebook fans and friends, “Saturday June 24, 2017 was the last dinner service for Rue Franklin. With the heaviest of hearts we say thank you to all of our guests who have supported the restaurant through the years.”

The French Restaurant opened their doors in 1971 – serving up delicious meals in a beautiful restaurant.  Located on Franklin Street near the Theater District in Buffalo, they were known for their great food, fresh flowers always at the tables, and that gorgeous outside dining area.

The closing seems to have come by surprise to many who left kind comments with warm memories on their Facebook post.

    It’s a shame such a class act of a restaurant won’t return my calls about a gift certificate we purchased for my parents 65th Wedding Anniversary.
    I’ve left 3 messages what’s the point of supplying a voice message. Perhaps not such a class act after all.
