Veselka

Eastern European in East Village & Lower East Side

A bustling tribute to the area’s Ukrainian past, Veselka dishes out pierogi (handmade dumplings) and veal goulash amid the usual suspects of greasy comfort food. The cluttered spread of tables is available to loungers and carb-loaders all night long, though it's a favorite any time of day, and a regular haunt for writers, actors and East Village characters.
