Ukrainian Food in NYC's East Village

Posted on August 03 2015

Veselka, a cozy Ukrainian coffee shop in New York City’s East Village One of my favorite places to grab brunch in Manhattan, although it's also great for every other meal as well, is Veselka.  This lovely vintage looking restaurant has been serving up traditional Ukrainian foods in the heart of the East Village since 1954. What to order is a no brainer: pierogi, borscht and potato pancakes. "For sixty-one years, customers have crowded into Veselka, a cozy Ukrainian coffee shop in New York City's East Village, to enjoy pierogi, borscht, goulash, and many other unpretentious favorites. Veselka (rainbow in Ukrainian) has grown up from a simple newsstand serving soup and sandwiches into a twenty-four hour gathering place without ever leaving its original location on the corner of East Ninth Street and Second Avenue. Veselka is, quite simply, an institution." - They also have a very cool designed website: [caption id="attachment_3749" align="alignnone" width="660"][/caption]
