Description

“Grandpa” Ralph Achille Turgeon started his career in the hospitality industry by opening a Howard Johnson’s restaurant in 1951 in Buffalo. In 1969, his two sons, Ralph Jr., and Frank, opened the Sign of the Steer, the first of 17 operations that grew into some of Buffalo’s most novel restaurants, known for their eclectic décor and fun, innovative menus.

Seating is limited; reservations are required. For more information or to order tickets, visit www.forest-lawn.com.
