>> Karczma | Eat the World NYC

05 February 2009



Invariably when mentioning the words "Poland" and "food" in the same sentence here in the United States, people will immediately say and think "pierogi." While these dumplings of potato or cheese or spinach are indeed delicious, there is also a more finely-tuned and in fact complex world of Polish cuisine. A good place to start sampling is one of Greenpoint's most prominent restaurants,Karczma.

The only staff we interacted with was the woman who also served our table, and judging by her, this is one of the friendliest places in the city. Karczma is a way of describing a Polish country-style lodge accommodation, and the interiors are designed to suit. It all feels fun, and the food does not disappoint. Hefty appetizers in the $6 range preceed $8-10 mains. A good start is the tatar wolowy ($6.50, Steak tartar) and szparagi z grilla zawiniete w szynce ($6, grilled asparagus wrapped in Polish ham, below). It is almost impossible to come here in a group of more than one person and not order the "Plate of Polish Specialties" which has all the favorites and costs only $10.
