Veselka

NYC's Legendary Ukrainian Hotspot since 1954

No matter the hour of the day, you can always find comfort at Veselka with a plate of their famous pierogi topped with sour cream and caramelized onions. While restaurants come and go in New York, this 24-hour Ukrainian restaurant has been an institution in the East Village since opening in 1954. Founded by Ukrainian refugees Wolodymyr and Olha Darmochwal, Veselka is still family-owned and run today. From their traditional borscht to potato pancakes, and of course, their signature pierogi, Veselka is as old world authentic as it gets.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Veselka has been named “Best East Village Diner” and “Best Ukrainian Diner” by New York Press. They’ve been featured in the New York Times, Serious Eats, London Times, Buzzfeed and more. Their pierogi have also been included in Eater’s “New York City’s 30 Most Iconic Dishes” and Thrillist’s “Most Important Food Dishes in NYC History.”
