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...More

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.

Restaurant was very quiet when we arrived around 7:00 but by 8:00 was quite lively. In the lower East Side of NYC, most diners were from Eastern Europe. The carbs were it for me! First and foremost, we had pan fried potato pirogies with onions...More

A local friend favors this restaurant for dinners, great for people liking Eastern European fare. Somewhat inexpensive and with a large menu. From the front door simply follow the long narrow corridor to the rear where there is a wide vestibule. Clean rest room is...More

For decades the East Village has been known for good home-cooking eateries --hearty Polish and Ukrainian places -- but these comfort food places are disappearing far too fast, I think of this Ukrainian East Village Restaurant as a hold-out and as a great museum piece...More

A bit like stepping back in time to the '60s for decor and hospitality. The place is clean, neat, spacious, and the food is as close to home cooking as you'll find in the neighborhood. Love the pierogis and you can't beat the prices here.

The menu was so interesting and varied, it was difficult to choose. Finally settled on mushroom barley soup followed by the chef's special of 4 different kinds of pirogi, stuffed cabbage, sausage, and sauerkraut. My friend had potato pancakes. All was utterly delicious, portions generous...More

Ukranian National House is really no frills, but their pierogies and nalashniki (eastern european crepes with jam filling) are the best, and the location is very convenient just off St. Mark's Place ... its just good inexpensive home cooking in a very basic setting.

This part of NYC is the center of Ukrainian culture and this restaurant captures a certain vibe of that world. It is the only place where one can be sure to get Ukrainian beer, always served very cold. Service can be chancey -- there is...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
