Who has great ones?

  1. A polish deli on 3rd Avenue and 82nd Street in Bay Ridge has excellent pirogies and homemade polish fare. They are not open on Sundays. Also Eagle Provisions on 5th Avenue off Prospect Avenue near the slope.

    1. I second bklyndos's rec of Eagle. They have preat stuff.
      There is a cute little Polish restaurant on 3rd Ave and about 72nd-73rd St, in Bay Ridge B'klyn. I recall their pirogies were pretty good.
      There are 2 Theresa's Polish restaurants. I don't know if they are connected in any way.. I've only been to the one on 49th St in Boro Park. . The pirogies were great., as was everything else we had. I don't know anything about the one on Montague St in B'klyn Hts.
      The BEST pirogies in NYC used to be found at Kiev, but the neighborhood became too 'trendy' for a little 24/7 Polish coffee shop to survive and they closed. :-{

      1. Head to Brighton Beach, get off at the Ocean Parkway stop and you'll find plenty.

            i might add that greenpoint is a good bet. there is also a place in Williamsburg, right on bedford that has some quality pirogies...i think they are between n. 8 and n. 7. i cannot remember the name, but it is two doors down from spike hill bar. but i would really encourage a google search of greenpoint. i've been to a couple of place on manhattan ave but i just cannot remember the names.

            also, the polish national home, doubles as the warsaw music hall, serves some great polish food...

              I grew up in Greenpoint and have to say that you couldn't go wrong with any place on manhattan ave.

                Technically not pierogi, but Varenichnaya in brighton beach has great pelmeni.
