Cook the Book Kate Williams 2 comments

Rakott Crumpli is a rich Hungarian casserole made with layers upon layers of eggs, potatoes, sour cream, and bread cumbs. Jamie Geller's version in Joy of Kosher is a bit less dramatic, since she uses only 2 layers of each. More

Fried Sweet Cheese Pierogi

Joshua Bousel Post a comment

Of all the pierogi that New York has introduced me to over the years, it's the sweet cheese version that has really stolen my heart. Tangy, creamy, sweet, and cheesy, it straddles the line between savory and sweet, making it perfect to eat no matter the occasion. Here's how to make 'em at home. More

Odessa's Blintzes Eat Like Crepes, But We Love Them Anyway

New York Max Falkowitz 3 comments

Odessa's bar closed this summer but their diner is alive and kicking. Their eastern European food is by and large weak—bland pierogi, limp potato pancakes, unremarkable kielbasa—but their Blintzes ($7) are clear winners. More

It's Time for Kafana's Hibernation Fare

New York Max Falkowitz Post a comment

If the cold weather alone doesn't convince you, the long walk to Avenue C just might; cold snaps like this call for something like braised beans and sausage, and Kafana, a tiny Serbian spot in Alphabet City, does especially good versions of both. More

Bigos in a Bread Bowl at Little Poland

Poke around the menu and you'll see that this decades-old Polish joint isn't just serving geriatric food. Their Bigos, for instance, is impressive, well worth an order at the counter. More

Stage Restaurant is Your East Village Pierogi and Potato Pancake Destination

New York Max Falkowitz 8 comments

Last week news broke that 128 Second Avenue, the East Village building that houses the venerated, 30+ year-old Stage Restaurant, is being sold to new management. Some rumors suggest that the new owners, "a group of four relatively young guys," have little interest in preserving Stage's presence in the East Village. Is one of the neighborhood's great lunch counters at risk? More

Russian Pastries on a Budget at Bakery La Brioche

New York Max Falkowitz Post a comment

On a sleepy stretch of Brighton Beach Avenue you'll find Bakery La Brioche, a glitzed-out Russian bakery with gold trim and marble countertops festooned with doughnuts, cakes, and small buns. If you've been disappointed by pretty-looking but dull-tasting pastries elsewhere in Brighton Beach, this bakery may be your answer. More

The Call of Khachapuri at Oda House, Georgian Food in Alphabet City

New York Max Falkowitz 8 comments

If you want a taste of Georgian food in New York, a cuisine unlike anything else in eastern Europe, you better get ready for a trip down to Midwood, Sheepshead Bay, or Brighton Beach. But here's Oda House, right in Alphabet City. It's been called the only Georgian restaurant in Manhattan, which is not strictly true, but it's certainly the most welcoming. The young restaurant has already become something of a hub for younger Georgians who don't live in south Brooklyn, and it serves some damned fine cheese bread. More
