If you are looking for “something different…something wonderful” for your New Year celebration, why not visit Bridgeport. This is a wonderful little neighborhood where many of our Mayors have spent their lives and on Morgan Street ( just a few blocks west of the ball park) there is a special treat, Polo Cafe, where host/chef Dave Sambor, always makes sure that your are fed well and where you can get an education about this great neighborhood in this great city.
The “Old Eagle Room” is a landmark in the area, but as a movie theater and the Polo Cafe, was the candy store next door. Now the Polo is a special place to dine and The Old Eagle is a banquet room for small parties and cabaret. For New Year’s Eve, Dave is offering a special dining experience, a pre-fixe dinner that includes the following:
