Best Polish restaurant in Greenpoint?
I'm new to the neighborhood and would love to try one of the Polish restaurants. Any recommendations - or ones I should avoid?
I really like Raymunds on Bedford down by (I think) 9th street.
It looks like some kind of Bavarian beer house but serves good Polish food.
my favorite is beef goulash served over potato pancakes.yum. you get the usual 2 vegetables with the dinners. I have never had the pork foot (I think that is what it is called on the menu) but it looks delicious too. the price is definitely right, I think the most expensive thing is $6.75. A lot of stuff from the steam table, but in a good way.
Not sure of the precise name (not up on my Polish) but the best I've been to by far is Polska Restyranska or something like that. It is right by the Polish Credit Union and the banquet hall on Greenpoint Avenue nr. Manhattan Ave. Soups are the best and they have a new menu with more vegetarian dishes.
If you want good, decent Polish food at great prices, try The Happy End at the corner of Manhattan and Java Street (one block north of Greenpoint). It looks like a bit of a dive (though clean), but the two ladies in a very small kitchen make great soups (two every day) and you can get the usual pirogi (frozen but good from a local maker), blintzes, potatoe pancakes and lots of meats, mashed potatoes, etc. Very popular with the local people. They have a back room for non-smokers. On Saturdays, they always have borscht and stuffed cabbage which are very good.
poles are probably the best nation on this world.polish food???better than best.i am german so...i know them a little so i can say if i would like go eat out the first choice is polish restaurant
