Best Authentic Polish Food in Town?
I am a Polish-American NYer living in LA, and coming back home for a short trip in June and hankering for the best authentic polish food I can find in town. Been away from NY for 7 years and lost all my foodie contacts.
Where would you send me for delectable pierogis, stuffed cabbage, pickle soup and the like . . .
I'm not an expert but the Polish Place, on the corner of Corsen and Daniel Low Terrace (just off Victory about a 13 minute walk from the ferry) is very good. The bigos is delicious, so that's a good start towards authenticity.
I was out of the city for a similar amount of time and haven't had any Polish since getting back this winter. I've been too preoccupied with Bosnian, Indo-Pak, Thai and Brazilian (and paying rent that's double what it was) so far.
I'd just go into one of the better butcher shops or bakeries in Greenpoint and ask (in Polish) for a rec. We were walking around there over the weekend and as much as it's continuing to gentrify, it's still very much a Polish neighborhood.
The most authentic Polish meal I've had was served up at Lomzynianka located at
646 Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
I had a delicious mushroom soup and the Polish platter which had delicious perogies, keilbasa, and other delicacies. The decor consists of plastic tablecloths and 80s music drifting in from the kitchen. The prices are more than reasonable and the food is plentiful.
