do not miss the potato pancakes-the BEST side dish to a yummy omelet. The poppyseed pastries are well worth the calories (you'll walk them off quickly in this interesting part of NY)

Huge portions of Eastern European foods. Our favorite thing is to create a meal from appetizers and enjoy many tastes that way. They are very pleasant and happy to help you with the menu if you have questions. We go every time we are in the city.

This is such a cool place. I love that you walk into a little area that feels like a little mall, then into the restaurant. They have excellent EU food. Stuffed cabbage is delicious. I have had Schnitzel w/mashed potatoes and was fried perfectly, no grease. Many of the dishes are very hearty, and starchy, but nothing beats this food for warm comfort in the winter. The pierogis are out of this world good, and plenty to share and why not add a potato pancake, you are already eating the carbs so move on and enjoy. If you don't mind carbs, they have Halusky--angels singing ...YUM!!! Yeah, I am a recovering carb queen, but if in NYC or Cleveland visiting family, must have Polish or Ukrainian food, can't find this where I live in the south.

A business associate and I meet every two months or so to catch up on various projects, and we have become fans of the Ukrainian East Village Restaurant.

The room is relatively small with 20 or so tables modestly decorated with Ukrainian artifacts.

Service is generally fairly quick, but the food is always delicious. Today the restaurant featured some very buttery cheese omelettes.

In the past we've had various Ukrainian specialties, especially the soups, all of which have been very good to excellent.

The only real negatives are the toilets which are located on another floor where cleanliness is something of an issue.

The dining room was full but with no waiting line on a Friday night. The menu had a broad selection of Eastern European specialties. Our group especially enjoyed the Hungarian goulash and the blintzes.
