Traditional Polish Cuisine in Greenpoint: Karczma
Karczma, situated in the heart of the Polish community in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, offers traditional style Polish food, which means if your are familiar, you can expect find traditional favorites such as Borscht, Bigos ("Hunter Stew"), Pierogies, Potato Placki and Kashanka (Buckwheat Blood Sausage), all served in very generous country-styled proportions. Inside and you'll immediately see a large wooden bar and rustic décor throughout evoking a unique cozy feel of being in a Polish farmhouse. The waitress, dressed in traditional folk dress provides that extra Old-world feel while delivering excellent and friendly service.
To make it extra merry, we recommend pairing a couple of "Zywiec pivo"(Polish beer) with golden brown pierogies, rich savory beef goulash and kielbasa that is perfect with the snap of the outer-skin smeared in spicy mustard along with a healthy heap of sautéed onions.
