2021: Manhattan Voted Veselka Best European Restaurant!
144 2nd Ave
(212) 228-9682 – http://www.veselka.com
Veselka has been serving up delicious Ukrainian food from the same location in Manhattan’s East Village since 1954. To help celebrate its many years in business, a good place to start would be to try the 67th Anniversary Bowl that comes with two meat, two potato and two sauerkraut mushroom pierogies topped with caramelized onion, grilled kielbasa and a slab of bacon. That combination offers a perfect way to sample multiple specialties. Other great options include beef stroganoff, blintzes, potato pancakes, stuffed cabbage and Ola’s Famous Veal Goulash. So order breakfast, lunch or dinner online today or head on down to the restaurant or its recently-opened outpost at the Market Line below Essex Market at 88 Essex St.
