Village Voice's Description

Start your meal with "peasant lard," a pool of semi-liquid fat dotted with bacon -- it goes better on the rye bread than butter, and it's healthier, too. Karczma ("Old Country Farm House") does its best to resemble a Polish farm, and all the old standards like grilled kielbasy, goulash, and pierogi are done with a little extra oomph! (and at a slightly elevated price), but examine the menu carefully to identify dishes that constitute a kind of haute Polish cuisine, including an excellent grilled fresh ham that was first marinated in white wine, and an appetizer of asparagus wrapped with the kind of great Polish ham they still smoke in Greenpoint.

Tips from foursquare

    Try the Polish food.

  • Serious Eats on 06/10/13

    Of all the Polish restaurants in Greenpoint, Karczma may have the whackiest design, treading close to theme restaurant territory. But its huge menu of comfort food is consistently well-executed.
