ABOUT 100 ACRES
a proud nod to Olmsted's vision at Buffalo's iconic architectural landmark
100 Acres and Hotel Henry are the first phase and 1/3 of the redevelopment of the Richardson Olmsted Campus. Named after Olmsted's innovative use of space throughout Hotel Henry's grounds, 100 Acres conjures land - a proud nod to the agricultural and sustainable tenets of Olmsted's vision for this property.
Though this land is no longer available for agrarian use, Hotel Henry will develop the footprint of the property’s original 19th c greenhouses to create a potager, or kitchen garden, to continue the tradition and benefits of hyper-local, urban agriculture. 100 Acres will serve a multitude of market fresh culinary experiences in an expansive hall, using diverse service and seating styles – all with one common menu. 100 Acres is committed to selectively sourced ingredients with a focus on regional products.
Creative dishes elevate fresh, simple ingredients showcasing the best of each season, based on sustainable relationships with local farms, and artisan breads and pastries from our in-house bakery.
The items and prices change very often based on what is sourced from our farms.
