A new Polish/Italian restaurant, Morluski’s is housed in a former church built over one hundred years ago at 10678 Main Street in the heart of our very own Clarence Hollow.
It is an enjoyable dining experience featuring fabulous Polish and Italian dishes. How do they feature two totally different cuisines? With a two-sided menu! The ambiance, bar, loft lounge and quality of the meals makes for a great and unique dining experience. Indeed, for old time Buffalonians, you may notice that the enchanting interior is reminiscent of the Turgeon Brothers’ establishments.
In full disclosure, this writer is Italian-American. Therefore, I feel qualified to comment on the authentic and delicious Italian specialties featured on the menu, especially the homemade pasta. Excellent. In an effort to be fair, I was accompanied by a proud Polish-American. This companion, having grown up on golabki, can attest to the high quality of that dish. Also, their award- winning pierogi did not disappoint! The bar is a feast in itself with offerings such as “hot cocoa on the rocks” and “spiced pear sidecar.”
Owner Jeannine Morlacci believes that “small business owners and local farmers are the heart of what makes our community and our country so special.” So, she buys local whenever possible. She noted that the menu is “labor intensive and all homemade.” She is proud that her restaurant is cozy and, lacking screens on the walls, encourages diners to converse. Morluski’s, relocated from Attica, retained all its employees and has grown to employ 15 people, including Morlacci’s two sons.
Open Monday – Saturday, Morluski’s is located at 10678 Main Street, and has plenty of parking. You may reserve your table – and a memorable meal – by calling (716) 407-3238.
