Eating and Dancing Ukranian Style in New York's East Village


It took me all of 2 seconds looking at the menu to decide I wanted cheese pierogies and cherry and cheese blintzes (cheese and potatoes? da, pozhaluysta!)  Now, I don’t have much experience to compare this to, as Ukraine cuisine is not something I regularly dabble in.  But–it was delicious, quick, well priced, and both plates were licked clean.  I’d totally recommend checking them out for a little tastebud vacation to Eastern Europe…the best borscht and kasha varnishkes in NYC await!

Note, they also host weekly dance lessons in the restaurant’s backroom–how’s that for a fun night out?!
