Since 1954, VESELKA has been serving up Ukrainian food from the same location in the heart of the East Village.

Veselka expanded in 1966, it took over a store front on East Ninth Street and the new additional space was referred to as the “Blue Room”, it was a separate dining room off the small front room, this area was often used by my grandfather/founder as his private meeting room for his cronies as well as of course dining area.

    Super fast service! Food was tasty, quick, and hot. We stopped in for a quick bite before our flight and it did not disappoint. If you enjoy Slavic food this location is a must-try! Definitely going back for more!

    Borscht is awesome here! First I took a cup, and then ordered a bowl. Please add salo and garlic to the side. As for other dishes it actually tastes like it’s home made Ukrainian food that I used to eat visiting my grandmother. Wanted to specifically highlight the speed of serving people, it’s awesome! My soup was served just couple minutes after I placed the order.

    It took 10 minutes to enter, because place was packed. Food is great! But.. Waiters touched forks and spoons with their hands. And this is awful. Bathrooms were dirty(( I expected waiters to speak ukrainian, or at least to hear some greeting in ukrainian. I wish they have syrnyky in the menu)

    A bit pricey but the food tastes good. I like the flavoring of the borsh, the stuffing of pierogies, the dense texture of the cakes. I had the vegetarian plate delux, and it did come with tons of grain which I couldn't finish and packed. Tis my 2nd visit.

    Delicious, reasonably priced Ukrainian comfort food, Veselka is one of my favorite spots in the East Village. Their pierogi and latkes are the best. Great place to stop by on a weekday for breakfast or for brunch with friends and family on the weekend. Friendly and attentive wait staff, service is prompt, and professional. Come hungry, and enjoy a taste of Ukraine in New York.
