Map & Details>>

Veselka has been feeding East Village beatniks, hippies, and hipsters since 1954, fattening them on a diet of rib-sticking Ukrainian fare that includes squarish blintzes, pierogi, fried chicken cutlets, kielbasa and eggs, muffins as big as slow-pitch softballs, blood-red borscht brightened with snowdrifts of sour cream, and—my favorite— pork-beef meatballs ramified with onions and chopped eggs, smothered in creamy mushroom gravy and dandruffed with dill. And the menu has been only slightly goosed by modernity: I noticed some baby lettuces on my revisit, and a new pierogi choice—goat cheese and arugula.
