The Wild Buffalo opened its doors to hungry golfers and the Buffalo Grove community at the Buffalo Grove Golf Course.
The restaurant, owned by Salvatore and Briana Cardone, replaces the former Village Bar and Grill. Buffalo Grove officials announced last year that they were looking for a new business for the Buffalo Grove Golf Course restaurant at 48 Raupp Blvd.
The Cardones, who have roots in the region, were eager to seize the opportunity to open up a new space. Salvatore Cardone grew up in Buffalo Grove and graduated from Buffalo Grove High School. Briana Cardone has spent most of her life in Buffalo Grove and Long Grove and graduated from Stevenson High School.
The restaurant serves lunch and dinner menus and has a full service bar. It opened at the end of last month.
The couple also own and operate Mambo Italiano in Mundelein and are co-owners of The Couture Caterer and La Cucina.
