What do you get when you combine a GM from the Buffalo Club, a Le Cordon Bleu-approved chef, and a dude who studied tequila in Mexico? If you said mad boozed-up fights with chef's knives while everyone wears Pat LaFontaine Sabres jerseys, you're probably right, but you could've also answered: Sadie, a gastropub in the former Les Deux space, featuring le trois very different spaces to eat/drink.
Give in to:
The Parlour: Honor what was formerly Les Deux's creepy, dark make-out room, by Frenching someone fully lit under broad-bulb chandeliers. Do the up-and-tuck, then sit in thankfully re-upholstered booths while sipping cocktails like the Oaxacan Through Italy w/ Pechuga, Vermouth di Torino, Cynar & a singed orange peel, and the malt/ bourbon/ lemon/ wild honey Kentucky Ninja -- too many of which will cause you to stealthily sleep with your cousin.
The Courtyard Dining Room: Head to the back and you'll find a retractable roof and hard wood tables/floor where they'll be plating roasted mushroom flatbread w/ white truffle oil, balsamic-glazed beef short rib w/ soft polenta & orange gremolata, and pan-roasted Idaho trout w/ crushed potatoes, who apparently never really recovered from that Quayle incident.
The Lounge: The space between (D-M-B! D-M-B!) serves the same bites as outside with banquette-style seating, old-timey paintings (including one of the restaurant's namesake cuddling a puppy), and a square bar that they claim will have a crazy, Rube Goldberg-esque machine in the center that'll go through all these weird steps before doling out beer, or what you get when you combine hops, barley, and... nevermind.
