200 Amherst Street
Buffalo, New York
In Buffalo New York, there once was a penthouse kitchen screaming for a makeover. Along came Jennifer Hutton from Artisan Kitchens and Bath and Michael P from Michael P Design to save the day! Below is their project story!
This project is immensely special since the Buffalo market is traditionally older homes that carry the sense of architecture throughout. The space was, unfortunately, decorated in the same drab commercial style as the lobby and was quite undersized and segmented from the rest of the living space. Boasting a whopping 9-1/2 ft ceiling height and grand windows, the kitchen had incredible potential.
Watch the full segment on the WGRZ website.
Artisan Kitchens and Baths is having the Grand Opening of the new Culinary Loft — where groups, parties, etc. can come in and cook their own dinner party with a well-known Buffalo chef. Complete with a new fully equipped demonstration chef’s kitchen.
Described by many as Buffalo’s own version of Iron Chef, this live cooking challenge pits professional chefs from local restaurants against one another in the stunning kitchens located at Artisan Kitchens & Baths. Each chef must use a locally sourced secret ingredient to create unforgettable concoctions in under an hour. Nickel City Chef has always sought to combine the entertainment value of food television with a distinct passion for all things local, with the end result being an experience as exciting as it is educational.
There’s a fine line between food lovers and food nerds. Food lovers are concerned with the end result, while food nerds obsess over every step of how a dish is made, from the sourcing of ingredients to its preparation and plating. If there was any doubt that Buffalo has always been home to an intense and appreciative group of food nerds, the success of the Nickel City Chef series provides incontrovertible proof.

2016 will mark the eighth season of Nickel City Chef, the Buffalo/Niagara region’s premiere cooking competition.
Described by many as Buffalo’s own version of Iron Chef, Nickel City Chef is as much about Western New York as it is about cooking and entertainment. We are privileged to live in an area with a rich history enhanced by hearty ethnic foods, a wildly varied agricultural bounty, and one of America’s greatest contributions to casual cuisine—the chicken wing.
Story: The kitchen is the core of this home, belonging to a family who loves to cook. The house is adorned with characteristics of the early 1940’s including a flagstone foyer, original woodwork and trim as well as leaded windows. Finding the right mix of classic and current was important, especially in maintaining an open concept plan. The end result was kitchen that seamlessly joined a family room ultimately creating a space for everyday family life.
Style: a modern take on a classic style. The space is home to warm tones, clean, linear elements and professional appliances.
Materials: The kitchen features painted white Kemper cabinets, high end appliances including Miele and Sub Zero, Cambria quartz countertops and Daltile product backsplash.
Challenges: This project had its own set of unique challenges. There were vast differences in ceiling heights, large HVAC ducts and pipes to be hidden and entrances to the garage to be observed and maintained. The large central column housing the refrigerator, bookshelves and pantries is actually constructed to hide a chase and other various pipes. It was the unique mix of aesthetics and practical install that made the kitchen such a great space.View Project Details
