    It's either Polish Village or Polonia, each camp has a loyal following that's all stirred up after the Fat Tuesday shenanigans. Visitors are eager to warm up with some dill pickle soup. Read more

    This restaurant serves a mean pierogi, and some lesser-known classics like dill pickle soup are also sure to please the adventurous. It's not fancy, but it's an icon in its own way. [Eater 38 Member]
