That was the irresistible heading on an invitation Buzz got for an intimate celebration last night at Buffalo's latest romantic hot spot, Polish Villa II. The iconic restaurant at 1085 Harlem Road in Cheektowaga is not only rolling out the barrel, it is rolling out an elegant new menu.
The Polish Villa II looks beautiful. Over the bar is an incredible ceiling, carved in Poland ...
... and perfect to look at when you loll your head back, enjoying that perfect sip of Sobieski. They also have authentic Polish paintings, one of which depicts Dyngus Day.
The beautiful people were there.
Here is, left to right, the comedian and Off Beat Cinema personality Airborne Eddy Dobosiewicz, the fashion photographer Cheryl Gorski and the dapper John Di Sciullo of WBBZ. Cheryl is celebrating the launch of her glitzy new Web site, Fashion Maniac.
Serenading the tables was the great accordionist Tony Krew.
The apex of the night came when Eddy made an impassioned speech about Polish cuisine. It is time, he said, that it is given the respect it deserves. The Polish Villa II, with its elegant menu (and yummy home-smoked sausages), does that.
"For thousands of years, Poland was invaded and partitioned by other countries," he said. "Now it's time for us to get back. It's our turn to do a little conquering. And we're going to do that with food."
The crowd applauded, with Krew leading the applause with blasts from his accordion. Eddy grew even more eloquent.
"If you like it, tell three people you were at the Polish Villa II and it was wonderful," he said.
"If you don't like it, tell 300 people you were at Pano's."
