As the gentrification of Greenpoint proceeds apace, who should be surprised that the best Polish restaurant this year is found in Bay Ridge, rather than the northwest corner of Brooklyn? Polonica—as with most of its Polish café brethren—is a postage-stamp of a place, with a handful of tables and a menu much larger than you'd expect in a café so small. Thrill to multiple forms of borscht, including zurek—a welter of meat, potatoes, boiled eggs, and sour cream. And then there's bigos—a hunter's stew you should probably wait until winter to try. 72-14 Third Avenue, Brooklyn, 718-630-5805 (11209)
