Start your meal with "peasant lard," a pool of semi-liquid fat dotted with bacon -- it goes better on the rye bread than butter, and it's healthier, too. Karczma ("Old Country Farm House") does its best to resemble a Polish farm, and all the old standards like grilled kielbasy, goulash, and pierogi are done with a little extra oomph! (and at a slightly elevated price), but examine the menu carefully to identify dishes that constitute a kind of haute Polish cuisine, including an excellent grilled fresh ham that was first marinated in white wine, and an appetizer of asparagus wrapped with the kind of great Polish ham they still smoke in Greenpoint.
