East Village

Veselka

144 Second Ave.
New York, NY, 10003, United States
TEL: (212) 228-9682

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.

Insider Tip:

Ever since the show Gossip Girl featured the restaurant in their show earlier this year, Veselka’s traffic has greatly increased, so try to avoid peak hours.
