Spurred on by Katerina's information that the former owner of Andrusha (and, before that, Kalinka) was now cooking at Bohemian Hall, we drove out to Queens last night. We were well rewarded.
We overordered by a lot, so we have terrific leftovers for lunch today. I started with the headcheese, a seriously good version that, I was told, is made in-house. Dick started with pierogi, also excellent.
I had the roast duck, while Dick had the roast pork. I had the duck with red cabbage and, at my request, bread dumplings. Dick's pork came with sauerkraut and bread dumplings. We were both transported back to the late lamented Ruc in its heyday.
Dick had the palachinka for dessert. Too sweet for me.
All, of course, accompanied by terrific beers: a pilsner for me, a dark beer for Dick.
The service was sweet and the prices are terrific. If you like middle-European cooking, I strongly recommend this place.
