Carte Blanche

Exploring the true flavors of food in the WNY region.


Welcome to Carte Blanche

The perfect place to enjoy life & food

The phrase "carte blanche" literally means "blank paper." In English, the expression translates to "the complete freedom to act as one wishes or thinks best."  

Carte Blanche is Chef Andrew Murtha's clean slate — a chance to design his own restaurant and menu from scratch.

Through Carte Blanche, Murtha's goal is to create a local cuisine for the area, something that has gotten lost in the shuffle of the industrial food revolution and the severity of Western New York winters.

We are very proud of our home and our roots. Our goal is to put Hamburg on the map, and use our local ingredients to develop dishes that define our region.
