I had such a terrific meal today in Greenpoint - I know I haven't "discovered" this place by a long shot (various write-ups from newspapers are displayed prominently) - but man on man, it was good. I just loved the kitschy room with its plastic flowers and painted tableclothes under glass...and the food is just delicous - the epitome of homey eastern european food - veal meatballs in dill sauce, boiled beef with horseradish, lots of pierogies with plenty of fried onions and sour cream, cucumber salad, rich, satisfying borscht - served in a china cup for sipping - and a delectable blintz filled with farmer cheese and cherries. The two of us ate our heads off, and the bill was under $20. I can't wait to go back.
