Claiming to be the city's only Serbian restaurant, Kafana ("cafe;") serves food that overlaps about 80 percent with other Balkan restaurants in town, including several novel configurations of the burek which may make this East Village watering hole worth a visit on their own. Gibanica takes those elements; cheese, egg, and phyllo; and reassorts them so the result is gloriously like mac-and-cheese. The ground meat cevapi and pljeskavica (onion-laced sausages and patties, respectively) are memorable for their inclusion of pork in the mixture, in addition to the usual beef and lamb. Finally, there's zito, a heap of sweetened wheat berries that tastes positively medieval.
