144 Second Ave., New York, NY 10003

The Ukrainian couple Wolodymyr and Olha Darmochawal traveled to New York to escape war in their own country, and inspired by fellow immigrants in the East Village, they opened a candy and newsstand in 1954 that eventually became the famous Veselka. Today, the 24-hour restaurant is open seven days a week allowing hungry diners to satisfy their pierogi cravings at any time of the night. The expansive menu also includes other Ukrainian specialties like homemade cheese-filled blintzes and beef stroganoff.
