Buffalo restaurant vandalized, Western New York steps up to help

A popular new restaurant in Buffalo recently suffered vandalism. Still, some members of the western New York community stepped in and helped the owner recover quickly from some of the damage.

Crazy Good Eatz, a new restaurant that opened on Main Street in Buffalo’s Delavan/Hospital neighborhood earlier this year, found itself in danger of having to be closed for a few days after a number of windows to the front of the store were smashed by a man who was observed throwing all sorts of items into the restaurant in the early morning hours of Saturday November 5, 2022.

In a Facebook post, restaurant owner Shetice Jackson said the restaurant would be closed due to the damage.

It appears that officers from the Buffalo Police Department were able to locate and arrest a suspect in the act of vandalism. Ms Jackson noted that the person arrested, according to police investigators, has a history of mental illness and it appears the attack on the restaurant was a random act of violence. Nothing was stolen from the store and no equipment inside the restaurant was damaged.

In a subsequent Facebook post showing a video with the shattered windows now closed, Jackson noted that she received a great outcry of love and support from the Buffalo community.

I love my city so much!!! You ALWAYS show up and show up for me…
-Shetice Jackson, owner of Crazy Good Eatz

It seems love and generosity are helping as the restaurant plans to reopen on Tuesday, November 7, 2022.
