Village Voice's Description
As indicated by the 10-foot-tall pot teetering on the roof, this cozy restaurant specializes in crock-baked Ukrainian specialties, including braised lamb shank, and forgoes the compulsory Casio charges and bottles of vodka frozen in blocks of ice.
Tips from foursquare
Excellent and authentic Ukranian perogies. Try the borsch, the Vareniki Moscow and the Chicken Stroganoff. Don’t forget to order a glass of Compote.
Really inexpensive and delicious pelmeni & varenniki. Eat in, then buy a bag of frozen ones to take home!
Bring your own vodka to keep it russian style. Place does not serve alcohol drinks.
Make your babushka proud: get the shopski salad and the assorted pickled veggies...some red borscht...vareniki with potatoes & mushroom. And reminisce about the old country.
World's second best perogies. Second only to your Ukrainian grandmother's.
