Polish Food in Woodside?
- Dave Feldman
You did me well with Thai. But what have you done for me lately. Do you (or anyone else out there) have a recommendation for a great Polish place in Queens, preferably (but not necessarily) in Woodside? One of our diners is Polish and homecuisinesick.
A good bigos would be a big plus.
bigos, to my knowledge, is ukrainian, not polish
(it's a saurkraut stew, for those reading along)
I don't know anywhere in that part of queens for
There are a couple of places I'm checking out on 5th
Ave in Park Slope, however...there are Polish and
Slovak places galore near Eagle Provisions (one of
NYC's best food/butcher shops). I think the cross
street is like 19th street (give or take a few)

Dave sez: "Bigos is Ukranian? Never knew that"
Jim replies: "well...so I've been told. I could be
wrong. Anybody out there know fer sure???"
Well, I don't know for sure, but I've seen it described
as "Polish Hunters stew" on menus (eveen if it's served
in Ukrainian places; you know how they mix and match).

I imagine you're checking out Monica's here in
beautiful Park Slope. While you're at it, take a gander
at Jubilaat, a fantastic deli on the same side of 5th
as Eagle, but a block closer to the expressway. They
have amazing hams and make all their own terrines,
pates, etc. Twice a week they get in an incredible
dense rye, sold in great chunks. Best of all, prices
are like Monica's--ridiculously low.
