Last week, Chef Michael Schafer announced the closing of Buffalo Fire Department in Torrance.
Anyone familiar with Chef Schafer knows how active he is in the community. For so many years he’s helmed The Depot; managed the twice monthly Torrance Artisan & Flea Market; hosted the monthly South Bay Blues Open and weekly Concerts in the Courtyard; all this, in addition to supporting numerous fundraisers and special events held throughout Torrance.
Buffalo Fire Department was a neighborhood joint where everybody really did know your name. The food was always top-notch, it was comfortable and family friendly. It will be missed.
Fortunately, Chef Schafer isn’t going anywhere. We’ll still see him around town, at The Depot and at City Council meetings. He’s just taking one thing off his plate.
