    The pierogies are magical. And don't be afraid to try to something new - the beet and horseradish salad was a pleasant surprise.

    Periogis! The Ukrainian cuisine is something new that we all should try. They have conventional items like sandwiches and burgers, but go for meat plates and periogies

    The New York original. All the Polish goodies are great, but really just order the pierogi, steamed or fried, and go to town with applesauce, sour cream and the like. Amazing, simply.

    Vegetable soup was served lukewarm and bland aside from dill freshness. The small size was large enough for one, $7. Goats cheese and arugula pierogi & sauerkraut with mushrooms best. Latke reheated

    Awful burgers, but good borscht and perogies. Stick to the Ukrainian menu and expect basic Ukrainian dishes (lots of white bread, cabbage, sausage, potatoes, and pancakes).
